One of my absolute favorite pastimes in the fall is having a nice warm bonfire outside. Life doesn’t get much better then when huddled around the fire with family and friends. There is something very calming about shooting the breeze while watching the fire. John and the wilds share my love for a bonfire.
Bonfires remind me of my childhood. We went camping every weekend. Part of camping is the campfire. The smell of smoke and charred wood take me right back there. I cannot wait to take the boys camping. I have such great memories of our weekends spent camping. I want to help the boys make memories of their own.
We can’t have a fire without s’mores. The boys think I’m crazy because I burn my marshmallows. I have always liked them that way. I love to catch them on fire. John is the exact opposite. Perfectly brown and toasted is how he likes his. The boys eat them any way they can get them.
Wild #1 always falls asleep by the fire. The warmth just makes you feel nice and cozy. Having the cool wind at your back and your face to the warm glow feels amazing. I melt right into the chair. Bonfires allow me to forget the troubles of the world as I become mesmerized by the dancing flames. I feel like I’m wrapped in a bear hug by Mother Nature.
Do you enjoy bonfires in the fall?
