Sitting round the campfire

We had a campfire in the backyard while Andy's parents were here last weekend. Our boys love to cook their hotdogs the "real" way. They don't really count unless they are cooked over a fire you know. 
 And of course, if you have a fire, it is a requirement that you have graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows available too. I think there is a law somewhere where that is clearly stated - or perhaps it is only written in the "under age ten" list of rules? Either way, my children are sure of the necessity of S'more. 
  The thing is, Zion is terrified of the fire. 
(not that I am complaining -I would rather him be afraid than a daredevil around it) 
So, he needed a little help from Poppy to get his marshmallow even close to the fire. 
"I'm not too sure about this Poppy!"
  but the final product is soooo worth it. 
Canaan liked his too - mister sticky face. 
Later on Zi was in charge of the camera. 
 He managed to get some really cool shots of Andy blowing bubbles.
I think the boy has "an eye". Or perhaps just really good luck?
Either way, an evening sitting 'round the campfire was greatly enjoyed. Sticky, maybe. Bug spray needed, perhaps. Hot - well, in S Ga that is a given. But fabulous fun - absolutely.

I cant wait to get a fire pit for our back yard. Of course it will wait since we are on base...and we are getting plenty of camping in so it all works out.

As for bugs...I started using the Bye-bye bugs soap from Great Cakes Soapworks and it has been great. I dont like bugspray and all the poisons. So I've tried the soap these last three camping trips and had AT MOST three bites while others had bunches. I like to wet the bar and just rub it on my arms, legs, ears and neck and leave it on. Its been great. (I also bath with it when I'm camping.) Just and FYI on a natural product!
