Spring Break : Saturday

Saturday morning we took the kids to a Marshmallow Drop. We went last year and the kids had a blast. We definitely wanted to do it again this year. :)

And this year Jonathan was able to join us! Wahoo! It was nice to be able to get out and do something together as a family.

A lady went around handing out marshmallows that we could actually eat. The kids were very grateful for that. Ha!

 Peter was really fascinated by the helicopter. Every time it made a pass he got all excited and would yell, "Oh!!" and gasp. He wouldn't let it out of his sight if he could help it.

 And finally, the drop!!

We watched which way the crowd went and walked in the opposite direction to get our marshmallows. The kids only needed one but were able to pick up several.

Peter was very mad that we wouldn't let him eat his. He was quick and got it in his mouth at some point. We grabbed another one for him and hid it in the stroller.

To go with the marshmallow theme of the evening we decided to use our fire pit for the first time and makes s'mores. The kids had been looking forward to this all week!

We found the perfect gluten free crackers for the s'mores. They are a much better size than the Honey  Maids us gluten eaters used. They are also thicker and don't crumble apart. Believe it or not, Peter made less of a mess than our gluten eaters because of those crackers! And they tasted better. We might just have to make the switch for all of us, or I'll have to find a recipe.

Our s'mores night was a nice end to our spring break week. We also think it is something we'll do together as a family this summer! We're thinking of inviting several of our neighbors to a s'mores night so we can get to know everyone a bit more. I think we'll do it some time next month, and definitely have a s'mores night while my family is visiting. :)
