Cousin’s Backyard Fun Times

The Lytle’s have a nice open yard that backs up to a forest. Everything is so green and pretty.  We got a thrill to watch the Fireflies come out at night.

View from Heather’s back door.  Colton made a trip down to the broken tree every day for some adventure and exploration.

Unlike Texas the evenings cool down to a pleasant temperature. So the first evening we were there we relaxed outside and chatted.

Then Uncle Joel showed us his scouting skills as we watched him build a fire for s’mores.

We were very patient and intrigued.

Joel did very well even though he did use some stinky leaves.


We made perfect toasted marshmallows and yummy s’mores. 



Like his mommy, Colty took the roasting very seriously.


Heather and I love roasting marshies, almost as much as we enjoy eating them.  We figured out a genius idea of double roasting the marshies and then balancing a square of hershies on it for a minute close to the fire and then putting it all melty on the graham cracker.  Love Campfires. It reminds of the good ol’ days when we would camp as kids and share a tent and landscape the front of our tent entrance with stones and local flora, and then we would stay up late playing Barbie's in our tent.

Pin It!

I enjoyed watching the pictures again and reading your comments. It was great fun to travel with you and you darling boys, they are real troopers.

I'm glad we did smore's even though the fire pit killed my grass. It'll be a reminder of our fun times together.

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
