This past weekend weekend, we kicked off the beginning of the warm(er?) season here with a beach campfire with friends. What a wonderful evening! The campfire pit is seated back from the beach a little bit, separated from the sand by some dunes. The dunes were lined with walking trails, making them the perfect place for all of the 25-30 kiddos to climb, play, pretend, and get really really dirty. It was whimsical almost, watching them, fueled by marshmallows, scamper with each other and pretend fight with foam swords.
From the pit, we could still see the water and the beautiful sky above. It turned out to be the perfect weather…warm enough that you wanted to be outside but cool enough that sweat didn’t overcome your enjoyment of the campfire.
Hot dogs, brats, s’mores, and laughs were had with good friends. Heres to another new tradition for our little Evanston family!
