We go camping of course. The girls have been bugging us for months and we finally caved. We went to Costco and got a pop up tent, which sets it self up in less than 10 seconds. It's awesome. The girls can both fit in it and it was under $30. Total score. Then it folds up flat for storage.
Ok, so they camped in the living room. That still counts, right? They had a blast. Of course, a good camp out is not complete without S'mores. We made oven S'mores.
Sydney helped me make these and I have to say, they were delish. Just like the real thing and oh so easy to make. Here are the directions:
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil.
Arrange mini marshmallow on graham crackers.
Put chocolate chips on top of marshmallows.
Stick in the oven on broil and take them out when the marshmallows turn brown.
Enjoy with your kiddos and imagine you are camping under the stars and listening to the crickets.
Finally, I saw this picture on Facebook and had to include it in my post, since I am talking about how stinkin hot it is here. I saw this and it put the heat into perspective for me.
