Last Tuesday night, the kids were lucky enough to have their cousins over for a couple of hours in the evening and a couple of hours the next morning! Brian had business in San Diego, so Danielle brought the kids over for a very short, but highly anticipated visit. We made smores on our new "firepit", which is actually more of a fire pillar. It stores away easier and runs on propane, which does not produce ash or smoke. I was told this might be better for the small covered patio that we have, and for the small hands that might make a mess of the ash. I have been wanting a firepit forever, and this was the compromise we came up with. We are loving the warmth and the bellyaches. Ryan wants to do hot dogs next , Lindsay popcorn (Jiffy). Alie likes organizing the chocolate and graham squares, and J justs loves to run around the yard in the dark, chanting around the flames.
Every time we roast, they all seem to find the big dipper, shooting stars, satellites, etc.

Ahhh. . . nice and sticky
This is the guy you want, if you want them done "just right". A little obsessive compulsive?
In the morning, Pineapple Island "sorveys" (as Alie calls them), were served on the balcony just before the tears started flowing. Parting is such sweet sorrow. Don't worry girls summer is right around the corner!
