Well if we are honest.....it was less cook... and more out....but the kids Loved it:)
Headed to the scrap pile to get wood chunks (we own a cabinet door factory) for the fire Looks like he has LOTS of
Setting the stage....
The food....hot dogs, Guacamole, chips and Jalapeno poppers. That's all folks.....like I said....less cooking.
Wren of course watched Troy load the hot dog fork and HAD to do one too. We only put one on her stick in case it hit the ashes.
The smoke kept coming over and disturbing her......so she tried a karate kick on it.....not sure it helped, but it made her feel better.
They moved this little chair all around ...I think your chair is a little short for the table my dear!
Wren plowed through her whole hot dog with bread, and ate another whole hot dog plain...and looked longingly at everyone elses! I really think she would have eaten at least 4 if we would have let her. This girl LOVES meat. Iley LOVES carbs. She ate all of her bread and 1/2 of her hot dog, and was done.
Welcome to our high class fire pit,
...and comfortable seating! They inform me that this fire pit used to be the foundation for the out house years ago. We're from the country......but.......some how...I don't think our arrangement would make the pages of Country living.
Perched in the wheelbarrow, happily munching their chips.......
Such a clean sanitary eating surface! I'm sure the Health department would not approve. BUT the Health Dept. doesn't know....they drank not only the water in China.....but...... the bathwater in China...and the pool water in China.....and they drink their bathwater now...except when I catch them.....and their hands are even dirtier than the wheelbarrow....and they are pretty healthy.......so NO worries....it's just good antibodies.
Then they tipped themselves over trying to get out....so decided hey this looks like a good place to set up camp. We'll just build us a nice little table here.
Then they shared MANY piles of chips!
The occasional clouds of smoke didn't even phase them.
She makes it look ...almost.....comfy....IF you're 5.
How about a handshake and a kiss.....anyone?
Whew! All those chips are makin me thirsty!
Harrison was happily lighting his carefully collected pile of grass on fire....oblivious to the fact that he was smoking out his father.
Notice Iley in the background going for another stash of chips!
His father didn't suffer long in silence:) So he's dutifully trying to fan it away from him. Sherman was highly amused.
After a good scrubbin....they staggered off to bed. I tucked them in, made sure everyone had their favorite sleeping companion of the day (it varies and we never know...and have to guess by pantomime...exhausting!) and kissed them soundly, and never heard another peep. .....Ahhhhh!!!!.......lets have a campfire every night!!
Just for fun......Can you tell who's Harrison, and who's Sherman?
.....and finally a couple of random pics and I'm done....promise:)
