Happy 80th, Dad

Friends and family got together last week at our favorite (centrally located) restaurant to celebrate my Dad's birthday. It turned out to be a lot of fun even though it was on a school night.

This weekend I had houseguests from Waco, my best friend and her daughter and friend. It was a wonderful weekend of shopping, cooking out and hot-tubbing (too cool for the pool). We also finally tried out the fire pit which is probably the closest I'll be getting to camping out. We roasted marshmallows around our terracotta and wrought iron pit and sang one line of Kumbaya for effect.

There's just nothing better than charred marshmallows on a wire hanger, especially from the comfort of your own back yard. (Sorry, no pics. I'll do better next time.)

Now that is something I haven't done in a long time. Burning marshmallows over an open fire. Sounds like you had a good time. Congrats to your Dad.

I share the sentiments of the previous comments. Yum - roasted marshmallows over a fire. Even longer has it been that I've roasted hot dog weiners over an open fire.
