S'mores by the Fire Pit

The gas fire pit in the backyard is finally done so it was time to create a new family tradition....s'mores by the fire pit on weekend nights. I don't know if it actually creates time for more conversation but the added sugar does create a little more chaos and silliness.

Seriously, Piper doesn't like s'mores
