Indoor Smores





Okay, anyone who knows us knows that neither Craig or I are big campers and I've always felt the tiniest bit guilty that we never take our kids camping. Obviously not guilty enough or we'd be out setting up a tent in the wilderness right now, but I wonder: are they missing out on some fundamental childhood experience? Anyway, not to make a short story long, but James kept asking to go camping and make smores. Well I knew the camping thing wasn't going to happen, but we decided to try the smores anyway...just inside, roasting marshmallows over the flickering flames of a candle instead of a fire. So here are the pictures of us making our "indoor smores" with mini marshmallows on toothpicks, and Hershey's kisses. (Jen, does this bring back memories of our childhood whenever the power went out?)

How funny are you! That is so great - way creative. I want to know, was James satisfied or are you still getting bugged to go camping? Take a motorhome, that's the only way to camp!

Good for you! Who says you HAVE to camp to enjoy the things you do while camping?!? I would much rather do smores indoors than outdoors (mega priss am I). Maybe you could come and visit and the kids and hubbies could set up tents at the cabin and we can sleep inside with the babies! Let me know!

What a cute mommy. That really is fun, and I bet it filled your night with happy kids. Great idea. I will be stealing it next family night.

Hey, I don't remember doing that as a kid. Was I left out or what!
