Aven and I decided to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows in the living room instead of heading out on the town and I am so glad we did. He has such a vivid imagination. We set up a campsite complete with a fire pit, tent and lake. AJ gathered firewood (books) to build a great, big, bright fire. It was spectacular! I am so thankful for his imagination even though sometimes that means that he paints with his magic markers on the couch or practices making mac n cheese on the kitchen floor. I am a bit embarrassed to admit that those are true stories and I was actually the adult in charge of him at those particular times. I remember not being so amused by his imagination at the time. However, I am still thankful that he is a healthy, imaginative smart little guy. His creativity is still welcomed even if it means more messes that must be cleaned up later. I have to get back to the campsite, Aven is about to start another fire. We are roasting hotdogs this time. .
