I can build a fire!

on August 7, 2013

fire 1

I love camp fires. We have a fire pit but don’t use it often because it has to sit in the middle of our yard over a tree stump, and there are just too many mosquitoes out in the grass. But, Saturday I realized we could make a fire early, before the mosquitoes came out. I have not had the best luck in the past, but this time the fire started up right away. We were even able to roast hot dogs on it for dinner!

I love the whole tending to the fire bit. From the storms this summer we had a ton of branches around the yard, so I gathered those to keep things burning. I tried to get the girls to gather sticks with me, but they were easily distracted.

Sun flare! Gotta love a sunset. This one maybe got in trouble for not paying attention and had to spend a timeout on the deck.

fire 4

We’ve had some sparklers leftover from the 4th of July, so we burned those too.

They always sound a lot more fun than they actually are, though.
