I went back the next day with the kids for a fire pit.
Friday night we barbeque'd and ate outside. It was a bit of extra work getting things down the stairs to the table but we all enjoyed ourselves. After dinner Paul and I worked in the yard. He mowed, I picked up pine-cones, watered the garden and sprayed the weeds. After we were done in the yard, the sun was starting to set so we started a fire and made s'mores.
We had a great time. The kids said that we wouldn't need to go into the canyon anymore but I know we will. We have two more meals planned for outside. I'm so excited to have this opportunity for fun family time.
