If you have been following me on Snapchat over the past year you've noticed that one of our favorite things to do as a family is make HERSHEY’S S’Mores
in our backyard! I grew up on the gooey, yummy treats; we always made them in the summertime sitting around our fire pit. It's one of the most distinct memories I have with my sisters and dad. We had a trampoline tent and would make S'Mores together before we went to bed (I guess when you're a dad to all girls you camp in the backyard instead of the woods ;). We would talk and laugh for hours on end! When I'm at my parents house and my dad isn't home to start the fire (I can never figure out how to start my parents fire pit) my sisters and I will still make a S'More together in the kitchen. We would rather eat a S'More for a treat over ice-cream!
A lot of my fondest family memories relate back to S'Mores, which is why Drew and I decided to build a fire pit in our backyard so we could carve out sweet moments like these to choose happiness with our own family. It was a must-have for me, and we have gotten SO much use out of it! We've had so much fun continuing our family tradition of making S'Mores around our own fire pit and spending quality family time cuddled up around the fire. We decided that with Memorial Day Weekend coming up, the timing couldn’t be more perfect to spend a little extra family time around the fire pit. Isla loves to take bites of mine and Drew's, and Dash of course tries to steal the marshmallows any chance he gets! We are definitely craving summer over here, and we cannot wait to keep having our 'Hello Happy Moments' all summer long making S'Mores!!!! What are some of your favorite treats for summer?! Xo, Rach
