When we sold the swingset this summer, we told the kids, we'd make a little outdoor firepit area where the swingset was. We finally got it done this weekend. We need to get more chairs, but we are waiting for a good find at a yard sale or something on a wrought iron set. Anything wood or with material just rots in our hot dry Arizona sun. So, we just pull chairs from our patio set around it when we need to. We put the pit on pavers and David got all the rock smoothed out. We used to have a sandbox there, so it was some effort to get everything looking good again.
Then, we got to try it out and have Smores since my Dad and Suzy came up for the night. It was nice and I can see many a marshmallow being roasted out there.
When I clean the bathrooms now, we have pitch in. Emily cleans her bathroom. Noah cleans the little bathroom. And since my bathroom is always the dirtiest since everyone likes to use that one the most, I have Ben clean David's side and I clean my side. It all works out well. Until I find Noah standing in the sink to reach the top of the mirror. Thank goodness he's only 45 pounds.
And I've been meaning to share these videos of the jetpack. So fun!
