How to Make a Perfect S’more (and a Wild Four-Year-Old)

S’mores are taken seriously in our house…even while on vacation.

Because…well, c’mon, it’s a little bit of perfection.

It’s fun, slightly dangerous (hello, fire!) and it is dessert.  *ding ding ding*  We have a winner!

Of course, the process must be respected so that the product is flawless; and who better to show you than my wild  four-year old?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I planned on sitting by the pool with the Mister but the boys had fire-y marshmallows and long spears so I decided to take a few pictures and keep the small guy from hurting anyone.

And because it *was* Father’s Day weekend, here is what the Mister was up to during all the fun…

I’m always amazed our family doesn’t get stared at more by other people, but then again I don’t make eye contact.

Maybe my logic is faulty, but in my mind, we are golden.

Here is what I captured on my camera. Hope you enjoy!
