Cookout for the ages

We recently had a little bonfire and weenie roast for a few of the kids' friends. We had meant to do it as a back to school shindig but it never came together so this was the make up party. 

The weather had been cool all week but got hot toward the end of the week and was really too hot for the fire but kids were invited and hot dogs were purchased so we went ahead with it. We also had a few leftover fireworks from July 4th that we got to set off. 

To me what was kind of special about the night was the vast array of ages of kids we had. We literally had a 2nd grader thru a 9th grader there!
Here was the run down:
2nd grade: Michael
3rd grade: Evan
4th grade: Mallory, Makayla, Reagen
5th grade: Matthew
6th grade: Cooper
7th grade: Sydnie
8th grade: Jaylyn
9th grade: Cachet

And the cool thing was they all had a really good time together. Paul and I enjoyed it too. We made s'mores and played a few games and just hung out. It was a good night. 

Paul and I always want the kids to feel like they can have people over and we like being the place where kids from the church, etc can be comfortable having good clean fun. We're old but we can hang:)
