Do we really get to stay up that late?

The answer was, yes! J and I (try to) have a regular bedtime for our kids which is usually between 7:30 & 8:00. Now during the summer, it can move to 8:00 or 8:30. But we really try to stay consistent. That's because no matter the time for bed, they're usually up by 7:00 in the morning. So to keep our kids up later at the cabin can be a risky move as parents. Now by "risky" I mean that we could have some crabby kids on our hands the next day since they didn't get enough sleep. It's not always pleasant and isn't always my first choice, but there are exceptions! Exceptions like having the first campfire of the year!
We let the kids stay up for their first campfire. This was also their first time they had 'smores and they loved them. C did ask about when it was time for bed while we were out for the fire. Clearly he was a little on the tired side, but that didn't stop him from eating his treat first! One of the best parts of the fire for C was that Matt, who's 10 (and who C just loves!), was the one to roast the marshmallows for the kids. They thought it was great!
This is just the first of many campfires and 'smores to come!
