Campfire and Tin Foil Dinners

A couple weeks ago, we took the kids up the canyon to Second Dam for dinner and a fun evening. I made tinfoil dinners for our meal and had roasted marshmallows for dessert. Cadence loves marshmallows!
Cooper was intrigued by the fire and especially by the ax. He wanted to assist Dad in chopping some wood! He signing quite a bit these days and his sign for "fire" is so cute! He was filthy and shoeless by the end of the evening!
Cadence wanted to fish. Of course, we had to run, go up and down the stairs, talk to and check out everyone along the bridges and rivers edges. Only two people had caught fish. Dad put the fishing pole in the water (without bait) for two or three casts so we could say we fished!
Cadence was so excited when we said we were going to roast marshmallows. She loved to cook/burn them, but wouldn't eat them. She just wanted hers straight out of the bag. Cooper and Cadence are both pyros. Putting long sticks in the fire was a big hit. (When we decided to go fishing to Mantua (see prior post), Cadence got all excited because she thought we were going roast/eat marshmallows again. She asked if we could bring the marshmallows along.)
It was a fun evening! The kids are so busy! We love the outdoors!

I was just telling Layne today that we need to make some buddy burners (tinfoil dinners)when we go up to our family reunion. But I know my mother-in-law probably wouldn't want them. I love them though! You guys have so much fun all the time. :)

Outdoors time is ALWAYS my favorite. Nothing can beat roasted marshmallows around a campfire!
