first day of spring

Today is the first day of spring! Which means it's almost warm enough to sit outside in the evenings around a fire.

So in honor of #TBT (Throw Back Thursday), here we are in 1988, I think, enjoying one of my favorite outdoor eating activities - s'mores.

Look at that guilty toddler (Derek) in the corner and the intense concentration on my mother's face (while I stuff mine with a marshmallow).

This may be one of my favorite photos of my childhood.

Mmmm, s'mores.
