{a summer first}

"Look! The fire is making lightening bugs!"

He watched the embers jump from the flaming, smoking logs, dancing upward, only to disappear after a few moments in the night air.

Landon fashioned his own fire pit with two small sticks and a red plastic IKEA bowl perched on top to mimic the flames. I rescued a bag of stale mini-marshmallows from the pantry and skewered them with toothpicks, so the boys could have a pretend roast of their own.

We laughed as Dan toasted a few of them over our real fire and made an impromptu s'more with bits of a chocolate Easter lamb and the chewy, browned bits of sugar, sandwiched between two graham crackers.

Our first two campfires of the summer.

Sweet, silly memories.

Yum, yum, yum. Enjoy summer! It's still freezing and raining in Amserdam.

P.S. I'm itching to make some button flowers. Thanks for the inspiration

What a wonderful image. And at their age everything was real. No pretending needed.
