Marshmallows by the Swimming Pool

By Dan Pearce |

The Westin La Cantera Resort had SO many activities for the kids to do, including marshmallow roasting by the swimming pool!

They built a fire in the large fire pit, brought out giant bags of chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers, and then they let the kids roast their own mallows to make smores. It was just one more unexpected surprise at The Westin La Cantera Resort that made our stay all the better.

A big thanks to Westin Hotels & Resorts for sponsoring this campaign. Click here to see more of the discussion.

    Are graham crackers and chocolate included too? ;)

    ?!?!? S’mores at a resort instead of the middle of the woods???? That’s something this self-professed “indoor mom” can get behind!!! I hope they let the parents crash this campfire party!

    Now that’s cute! There’s nothing my kiddos love more than feeling like they’re doing grown-up stuff, like roasting marshmallows.

    What a great way to mix the pleasures of the modern world while still letting your kids enjoy the simpler things. Very cool!

    S’mores at a hotel where I don’t have to pitch a tent, get zero sleep, watch as my pathetic attempt at a fire smothers?! Sign me up for this ‘Glamping’ adventure!
