Last weekend, Clark himself came up with the idea to build me a fire and have an at-home date night making s'mores. We had planned for last night to be the night, and even though it happened a little later than planned, it still happened!
We've had s'mores at home before, but we used to use an unraveled clothes hanger for a skewer. Well, we weren't cheap this time and we actually went to Wally World and bought some metal skewers.
[Funny story: A few years ago, I was at my friend Terah's house with a bunch of my friends and we had a bonfire. There were plenty of s'more-making activities and metal skewers. I wanted just a toasted marshmallow, so off to the fire I roasted. When the 'mallow was done, I popped it right into my mouth. No, not by taking it off of the skewer with my hands and then placing it ever-so-gently into my mouth. I just put my mouth right on the end of the skewer that had just been sitting in an open flame for five minutes. I burned my lips so badly....but I was too embarrassed about my ditzy move to react aloud. I didn't want anyone to know what I had done. I still remember how badly that hurt....]
Clark didn't have a lot of time to get a nice fire going, so we worked with a little one. It was good quality time together, and I'm so happy Clark thought to do that for me!
