More S'mores?

Posted on 8:03 AM by Trimblog

About a month ago, we went up Big Cottonwood Canyon with some of our good friends. There is just something about being in nature that is so refreshing--I love it! We had tinfoil dinners, hot dogs, and s'mores.

Claire enjoyed playing in the dirt as much as the boys.

The boys kept asking all night when it was time to roast marshmallows.

Everyone had such a great time that we decided to do it again a few weeks later. We went up American Fork canyon the second time and it was equally as beautiful.

The boys found a couple of great spots to make some shelters.

They also had a ton of fun playing in a little stream. After putting their feet in the water, Jaxon told Jeff that his feet were too cold to walk back to the campsite.

We were able to perfect the s'mores this time around by putting the graham crackers and chocolate on the grill and letting the chocolate melt. I've never been a big s'mores fan, but I was converted. I didn't know s'mores could taste so good!

They were some very enjoyable nights and I wish we would have done it more often. Oh well, there's always next summer!
