This was a couple of weeks back, when we finally built a fire in the fire pit and spent an evening outside.
Somebody has a marshmallow in her little hand...
The boys enjoyed watching our Christmas tree go up in flames.
It made quite the blaze!
Ben got out his Indian drum and there was a little dancing around the fire.
While the fire burned down, I sat on the hillside and watched the kids play, sans toys. Ben started a little contest of jumping over last years' garden fence.
Calvin has very good form. :)
There was much rolling down the hillside.
Like a breath of fresh air was this evening for our family. It can be so difficult to stop "living" to enjoy down time and simplicity of being together outside, with no plans. So nice.
