in honor of our pioneer heritage....our new tradition:
our home made fire pitthe older boys decided to dress up pioneer style and make toys out of day lily leaves
cooking our dinner. big d and i have no real experience cookin' dutch oven style. as you can probably tell.
roasting turkey dogs, because pioneers ate lots of turkey dogs
notice our feast...a little overdone?
after the gourmet dinner, we went for a trek. to our local maverick for icee's and ice cream sandies. then we trekked back home to roast mallows and light fireworks....
notice how i'm pretty much obsessed with the chocolate? yeah, you got a problem with that?
chilly throwing magic dust on the fire. our magic dust was sawdust from big d cutting up our wood.
do they both have their tongues out? i think so. yum, roasted mallows and s'mores
notice the baby asleep on my lap?
enjoying our cooked sugar
is it just me, or does this look a little satanic? red eyes, a pitchfork? i dunno.....
mmmmmm, finger lickin' good
