Fire Pit

Our project over Memorial Day weekend was to build a fire pit in the back yard. It isn’t big, but it holds plenty of fun. I’ve been reluctant to go camping while we still need refrigeration for our Lact-Aids.

Having a fire pit in the back yard has given us the best of both worlds. We can go out and enjoy a lazy evening, invite family or friends over, or cook over an open fire. At the end of the evening, we head in and wash the smoke off of us and enjoy our nice comfortable beds.

Happy Summer Solstice! It’s officially Summer now!

June’s theme for the Families Create! challenge was adventure, and our participants didn’t have to go far to find some. Check out these adventures that were found in the backyard or around town:

Carrie at Love Notes Mama writes about a sensory adventures you can take in the rain without ever leaving home.

Hannah @ WildParenting discovered that being outdoors with your kids is bound to turn into an adventure when their family decided to try camping together.

Dionna at Code Name: Mama and her family created an impromptu summer adventure complete with water play, a bus ride, and a picnic.

Mandy at Living Peacefully with Children built a backyard fire pit with the help of her children, which necessitated the ultimate campfire accessory – marshmallows!

Please join the Families Create! Make and Play Challenge in July. This month’s theme is swashbucklers!
