Ashlyn’s Date Night


We finally got back to our family “Date Night” and it was Ashlyn’s turn to plan it.  Without even having to think about it she picked roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.  After a trip to the store ($10 budget!) we had all of the goodies and were ready to start.  The problem- it was windy.  Too dangerous to have a fire going.  We made dinner, we ate dinner, we cleaned up dinner…. and all the while Ashlyn kept checking on the wind.  The wind finally died down enough to roast marshmallows and keep everyone up nice and late.


As the last person finished roasting his marshmallow the wind roared back to life and we put out the fire.  Perfect timing!

  1. A really cute date night idea. I remember how windy it was the night – more like a wind storm. What a great idea to do the fire pit in the sand box.
