Posted by mrssmythe on June 23, 2014 in Camping, Family, On the Home Front, Seasons |

Friday night at the Smythe house – time to light the tiki torches and grab some marshmallows. With a good dose of woodsmoke and plenty of bug spray, we’re able to push back the mosquitoes long enough to enjoy some quality time in the backyard.
