More S'mores anyone.....?

...one thing about being on vacation is that you are usually on the go - there are too many sights you want to check out - and Alaska has more than its share of wonders...

As filled as the days are, it is often the quieter evenings that leave moments forever settled in the heart...one such night was this past weekend. Our Dave and Jena had driven down to join us in Homer.

We headed down to the beach after dinner and gathered driftwood to build a fire. The sound of the waves accompanied our laughter as we watched the antics of our Kelsie, Seana and Kodi. Soon the warmth of the cheery campfire meant it was ready for - you guessed it - S'mores. It has been many a year since I last tasted these little wonders...who hasn't tried to perfect a golden coating on the marshmallow without setting it ablaze? Sticky fingers, spots of melted chocolate on the cheek and graham cracker crumbs -

The simple things are most often the very best in life - being with family is #1.

Wishing each of you happy moments with those you love...

OOOOOH! Smores-I remember those.
I know you are having a wonderful time and we like to hear all about it.
I would love to be beside a bonfire on a beach again.
Happy days!

Just had a weekend away with the family this past week and we had s'mores, too. Nothing like being with family, a big campfire and s'mores. Glad you are enjoying your vacay.
