Weenie Roasting Season

Ordinary Lives. From a 2 z 4 u & me

Now, for this week's installment of our a 2 z 4 u & me meme,
the letter W.

We started weenie roasting years ago, and haven't missed a year yet. We've been known to go out in all seasons...spring, summer, fall, and yes, even winter.

Aren't the adorable?  And sooooo little!! sigh. Where do the years go?!?!

Check out those years and how much they've grown in the 8 years. And if you scroll down a post or two, you can see them about half-way through those years. ;-)

Years ago my hubs built this weenie roast for us, and we've had so many years to enjoy it, and we have. He gleaned old telephone poles and made benches out of them and as we can get them, we have the jumbo wire spools as tables. We also set up saw horses and planks to use as a serving table for the dawgs, buns, beans, mac n cheese, and sodas, and... oh! and chips and marshmallows!!

^ Here's my older four... and below is my wonderful hubs, youngest, and Puppers. Of course. Can't have a weenie roast without our furry, four-footed family members, who, I might add, are pretty good about staying away from the food but we still have a little training to do.

And marshmallows to wrap-up a wonderful weenie roast. Stop by sometime and we'll throw one together. =)

  1. Can't believe I'm actually first! Woohoo! (Oh and that's a w word!)

    Love the picture of your kids by the trees. What a treasure to see them each year. When they're our age, they will look back at those pictures and remember!

  2. Looks SOOO fun! And yes - great pictures! I'll be there as soon as I can :)

  3. Loved seeing pictures of the kids through the years--how fun!!
    Nothing like a great weenie roast. When our children were growing up we had our weenie roast at the beach, complete with marshmallows. Love the memories! Hugs!

  4. Hey, I stopped by and we didn't "throw" one together. :( Oh well, y'all's (good southern word, LOL) sweet company was AWESOME enough.

    We do Weenie roasts occasionally, but it's not a yearly happening, just whenever we have wood and marshmallows (and it's not too hot outside).

    Awesome fun! Thanks for sharing this Patty! Dan

  6. We have a fire pit too... I love the weenie roast (I prefer blackened hotdogs) and my husband prefers s'mores. Our dog prefers clean-up!

  7. Ah, that looks like fun! The marshmallows would be my favorite part--fun stuff, Peej!

  8. Someday I'll take you up on that, Patty dear. S'mores any one??? Love that kid pic by the tree... so precious and super cool to see them grow(ing).

    What a great family tradition!
    Miss you all!


  10. You going to invite us all over, Peej? Wouldn't that be fun?

  11. Looks like so much fun! I rarely eat hotdogs, but once in awhile they really taste yummy!

  12. I can tell you live in the country like us! We've got a fire pit in the backyard, too. Archie the Westie and roasted marshmallows are an interesting combo!

  13. Love the pictures and stories! The ones of all the kids between the two trees is especially fun. We liked to do roasts at our country home, too!

  14. Oh, what fun! And great pictures. I, too, love the between the trees pics!

  15. Those pics of the kids are some of my all time favorite! Taking there picture at the same spot is great. Keep it up!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
