Even with the sugar high the kids were worn out and once we got them down for the night we sat on the porch (with blankets around us because it was so cool!) and visited. We had a great time and got to know a nephew and his family who we really didn't know very well before. How cool is that?

Yep. Middle of summer and we roasted marshmallows over a campfire. Last week when my nephew and his family stayed with us, we had unseasonably cool weather. They are from Phoenix, Arizona, so open fires aren't a normal day to day thing. We had our granddaughter here to keep their kids entertained, and I had the bright idea of roasting marshmallows. Now, think about it. Three kids age five and under - eight o'clock at night - and I'm proposing filling them full of sugar. Yea, that is a bright idea! Well, we did have a great time and I know we made memories for those Arizonaites that they will not forget (at least the older one won't lol). Oh, in case you couldn't tell, my granddaughter is the one in blue *grins*.
