I couldn’t believe that my brother gave my Mom the assignment to do S’mores for our Wells family reunion. Not that there is anything wrong with my Mom, she makes delicious S’mores, but we were having our family reunion at a condo in Park City, Utah and Park City is known for it’s amazing skiing not fire pits and marshmallow sticks.
But I wasn’t in charge of the family reunion this year and I decided that I shouldn’t say anything and so I just kept my mouth shut and waited to see what would happen. (My brothers are laughing as they read this.)
When I saw how my Mom set everything up I was very impressed. We got out the barbeque grill and then she arranged all the S’more making supplies on a plastic covered card table.
We used wood skewers for making Shiskabobs.
Mom thought of everything- marshmallows, chocolate and crackers. She even remembered the “Peeps” for roasted Peeps.
So thanks to my Mom’s organization and creative thinking, the Wells family had S’mores at our family reunion.
The lesson I learned from my Mom, and my brother too, is that even though tradition is a great thing, don’t hesitate to think “outside the box” and try old traditions in a new way.
And while your eating your S’mores try listening to the S’more song- Catchy S’more Song for a little “non-traditional” fun.
