Ava has been talking about roasting marshmallows for several days. Friday night at the reunion, there had been promises of mallow-roasting, but it was just too late, the kids were exhausted so we didn't stick around for the campfire. Ava, was obviously disappointed, but I promised we'd roast marshmallows soon.
So, Saturday I bought a big bag of mallows at the store. Then, tonight after dinner, we went on a walk with some friends and ended back in our backyard, armed with a camping grill, fondue skewers, marshmallows and three wide-eyed, salivating children.
Ava and Reid couldn't get enough of the puffy, sugary goodness. I'm pretty sure they ate four giant marshmallows a piece -- savoring each bite.
Jax, on the other hand, had a less delicate approach to his mallow consumption.
