We have had, since the first week of June, exactly two days without rain. It is getting a little old, to say the least. So today, we decided to bring a little summer cheer inside:

Here it is - our indoor campfire! Made from wooden utensils, an orange silk, and my favorite little touch, Luke's rock collection to complete the fire pit. Owen placed pillows around the edge for the three of us, and then we got down to the real business that takes place around the campfire...

It is amazing how a mix of graham crackers, chocolate, and melty marshmallows can make the rain retreat, at least a little.

No campfire is complete without spooky stories:

I was treated to two of the best; Owen told a spooky story he called Henry and the Vampire Goblins, and then Luke's was a scary one about a basilisk who gets strangled by a sea monster.

And a good time was had by all!

What adorable little guys you have. And the rain -- it's pretty unbelievable, isn't it? (As a fellow Northeasterner, I know.)

I love the campfire. You should save that idea for this weekends "Great American Camp Out" if the rains continue. Save me a s'more.
