The Giving Tree....

One of our most favorite things to do is to hike with the furry one. We are lucky enough to have a beautiful apple orchard near our home with trails that circle two reservoirs. A gorgeous hike.
This past weekend with the lovely weather we've had, we were able to hike several times. It's that time of year at the orchard when the volunteers collect fallen branches to discard and there were many on the ground. Knowing we'd be having a campfire and we always make s'mores we decided to collect fallen branches to use as roasting sticks..... they were perfect! Nice and straight and easy to clean, and it reminded me of one of my favorite childhood stories The Giving Tree. The kids got a little tickle out of that as well.

We all really enjoyed the campfire and delicious s'mores!

  1. How fun! S'mores are a favorite in our family, too! I see you have strawberries in the photo...I've never thought to add those to the ingredients. Can't wait to try that!
