A S'mores Adventure in the South Hills


We spent our Sunday evening as a family roasting marshmallows over a fire and going on a short hike in the South Hills.

But let me back up a little bit.  I may or may not have gone a little hog wild on my trip to Hobby Lobby with Momma Nelson last week.  Nesting is is full swing around here and it is REAL.  I'm in the process of decorating and re-decorating parts of the house.  And I must say, it is coming together beautifully!  (Now if only I can motivate myself to clean out those closets and organize!  Haha.  I'm coming for you next, junk.)  Anyway, I re-decorated the boys' room with an adventure theme.  There are arrows, a bicycle, and art that says things like, "Climb every mountain," "Brave," and "Adventure awaits."  Needless to say the boys are happy and excited!  It's a room all about them and the things they love most.  Plus, it is my hope that they'll continue to develop a passion for outdoor adventures and pushing themselves to do things they never thought they'd do. 

So of course, now that their room is mostly done, all we've heard on repeat from Levi is, "What's our next adventure?"  Well, since camping wasn't going to work out this weekend, we settled on cooking s'mores over a campfire and a small hike instead.  Win!

I love my little boys.  Sometimes they drive me crazy with their impatience and the way they fight and their endless messes, but in reality they're really good and caring kids with a contagious enthusiasm for life.  They make me so proud and happy to be their mom.
