We had a fantastic summery weekend. We were on our beach cruisers, at the beach, barbecuing with friends, soaking up sun and visiting with family. The whole weekend screamed summer. To make it even more summery we ate a whole bunch of these s'mores cookies. What is it about a s'more that just makes you feel like a kid on summer break. The first two weeks of July have been awesome. I feel like this is the first summer in a long time I can enjoy. Not pregnant, don't have a newborn and the weather doesn't suck. All of this fun has me feeling like just as we are getting into the swing of summer fun it is going to be over. There are 63 days of summer left. I am going to pack it with as much fun (and s'mores) as possible.
Carter came home from his camp themed camp today and said mommy we made s'mores at camp today but, they made them wrong I like yours with the chocolate on top not inside. So cute! We all loved these cookies but, honestly I think Campbell was the true fan. She would walk over to the cookie jar in the morning and ask for "cookie cookie".
Enjoy summer and make these today. Your kids will love you and you will feel like a kid all over again.
Looking for more s'mores (that is fun to say)! These are both really good. Promise.
