This afternoon I gave my son some pretzel sticks and mini marshmallows for a snack. He immediately speared all of the marshmallows with the pretzels and explained that he was roasting marshmallows & making s'mores.
This led to a conversation about his last birthday party. He said the best part of the 'Camp Out' party was when all of his friends sat around the campfire and made real s'mores. He said his second favorite thing was our Nature Scavenger Hunt when he and his cousin were the only ones to be able to find all the things on the list. Then we agreed that we would have friends over more often to play in our forest and we would make LOTS of campfires with LOTS of real s'mores!
So even though we didn't get to spend much time outside today, at least we were able to reminisce about our nature adventures!
