Summer is Like Being Seven Again

This last weekend Kyle and I indulged our inner kids a little.
Saturday night, I made s’mores over the stove…because we were too lazy to go outside and fire up the grill. I think they tasted better with the two of us, barefoot in the kitchen, eating over the counter, and giggling like 2nd graders. Kyle made a lot of fun of me because my method of toasting marshmallows is basically setting them on fire and blow them out, instead of patiently toasting all sides. Because that takes too long and I like them crispy.
I love how smooshy and messy and delicious they always are…

And then Sunday, after church, we decided we needed to get out in the sunshine so we went to one of our favorite outdoor spots in Columbus, the Park of Roses. Which, in case you didn’t know, is a park. Of roses. It’s actually a really big park and we had a lot of fun walking around and snapping pictures.

And spying on this very large, very bizarre expedition of people with gigantic butterfly nets that piled out of a van and set off for the woods. We, uh, we kept our distance from THOSE people. I was a little afraid of the guy in the safari hat.
We had a picnic under the trees, complete with basket, blanket, and our very own picnic ants!

I think we took over a hundred pictures but here are a few of our favorites…

There’s a huge weeping willow tree in the middle of the park that hundreds of people have carved their initials in. Maybe someday I’ll be feeling rebellious enough to add ours.

If you recall from last summer, I too light my marshmallows on fire and blow them out. The other way takes too long.

Beautiful photos...especially the one of my girl, Madigan. She's so photogenic. Unless I'm the one trying to take the photo. :)

The smores look so good and all your pics are amazing! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm actually in the process of making a button so I'll definitely let you know when I get that done! I need to add some buttons to mine and will have to add yours.

Congrats on getting accepted to a PhD program. That is a HUGE accomplishment. You must have done something right! I thought about going on and getting my PhD but we'll see how I feel after the Masters! And mine's in Mass Communication. What about you?
