My husband and I like creating family traditions. Hands down my favorite family tradition is driving my kids around to look at Christmas lights while we drink hot chocolate. We do it every year and it is always a great time. Last week it was freezing cold in Las Vegas. It was literally freezing, something that rarely happens where I live. And I got an email announcing a sale on fire pits. Well they say timing is everything and since it was so cold outside, a fire pit sounded like something that would be so cozy and fun for our family.
After a lengthy debate over the merits of two different fire pits, we chose this one. I love the design but I wish it was portable like the other one we looked at. Not because I think I'm going to take it anywhere, but for the convenience of putting it away so my kids can't mess with it. Not that my kids would make a mess.
Mark was a little unsure of the fire. This didn't surprise Brett or me at all. He wouldn't roast his marshmallow either so we did it for him. Molly was the first kid to set her marshmallow on fire. She thought it was pretty cool and gobbled it up. I know better, burned marshmallows are not good you really should just throw it out and start all over again.
It's a big debate in our house, should you burn a marshmallow or slow roast it without any brown marks at all?
