Bonfire Adventures

Our first summer bonfire kickoff
with Brian & Jaclyn and Steven & Shanda was a total success!!!
It was quite the drive into a little secluded forest...
We then found a perfect spot and deemed it ours!!K so I got a funny story...
It all starts as we begin gathering wood to make our fire {the girls gather sticks and the men out gathering LOGS} It has been a while since I have seen my husband...I look around and he is no where to be found. I'm all worrying, wondering...did he get eaten by a bear or something?? Then all of a sudden we hear this cracking noise and we see Scott dragging a tree down the hill. My husband is the wilderness man of the century. He cut a tree down for our fire with his pocket knife. hahaha. It was really funny when we saw him coming down with this big dried up bush/tree thing. I guess that's what happens when your an eagle scout...at least that's what I told my 16 year old brother who has yet to finish. He's really close!!
Can you believe he will be 16 in August?? Crazy! Anywayys...

We roasted STARBURST and Marshmellows/Smores forever
and just chatted the night away.
P.S. It is nice to have a forest nearby to feed your fire!

Here's the gang below!
{minus me cuz I was uh taking
the pic with me phone..duh}
We will have to do another bonfire soon.
I already miss that campfirey smell!

It has gotten so warm lately...
it was almost up to 80 degrees this week can you believe it??!
We even got a little burnt from being out in the sun on Sunday.
It's like we are so not used to the SUN or something?? hmm.
