Summer Time!

The one thing we love about the summer other than the weather, is having the opportunity to be outside and have a BBQ; although looking at the weather today I think its doubtful if we shall be having a BBQ this weekend.


Last weekend hubbie took charge of our fathers day BBQ; what is it with men and BBQ's?, they can't wait to fire it up, but when it comes to normal evening dinners they don't want to do it! We are very fortunate that my Grandad is a butcher so we know what goes into the sausages and burgers; however being such good quality meat comes with its drawbacks in that less fat means less flames on the BBQ!

Hubbie even bought some marshmallows and we toasted them on the BBQ as if we were having a camp fire;  this was a new experience for Ruby and she decided that she only actually liked the pink marshmallows, she really is becoming such a girlie girl. After toasting the marshmallows we even sang a song around our camp fire / BBQ!

We set up a tent so Ruby could pretend she was camping and she thoroughly enjoyed herself; she didn't want to come in when it was time to go to bed , and instead asked for her duvet so she could sleep outside all night! I think one day when the girls are older we might need to take them camping, however judging by our last experience with camping a couple of years ago which resulted in severe burns to my hand and checking into the local premier inn, I think we should leave it for a little while!


Tomorrow I will be featuring a very powerful and moving HOPE post and next week I shall be launching our first giveaway! It is all very excited so keep reading!

  4. BBQs are great fun and children definitely seem to love food cooked out in the open. Hopefully summer hasn't left us and there will be many more BBQ days ahead.

  5. BBQ's definitely feature in our family, as does marshmallow toasting to finish. Yes your right our men are very eager to light the BBQ but not the oven in the kitchen - it must go back to caveman times! Let's hope we have a great summer and can enjoy more time spent outdoors. Some lovely pictures of the girls enjoying being outside, thanks for sharing with Country Kids.
