My kids have been asking to go camping since at least February. Snow was still on the ground. Finally, I figured out that they really didn't care about camping, but, the little pyromaniacs just wanted a campfire to roast marshmallows (i.e. burn stuff) in.
I don't love camping, so I thought it would be great if we could have a campfire at home. My sweet husband who loves his girls so much volunteered to build a fire pit. Ohhhh, I was so excited. I had visions of this in my head:
We would look just like that cute family! I mean, we already have the same kind of dog and everything!!! We would make yummy s'mores, no one would get in a fight, we would be the perfect family and nothing would get severely burned around this beauty:
Maybe we could even get a pool!!
And a huge, beautiful house!
Look...here we are assembling our delicious grilled dinner:
Just kidding! Here's what I got:
Basically a hole in the ground that fills up with water everytime the sprinklers come on or it rains. It did not stop the kiddos and Big K from burning lots of stuff though!
Wait till next week when I show you how we remedied this situation and made a real fire pit. See you then!
