In our backyard, there is a large pile of sticks. Some of them are rather small, and some of them are the huge branches that have fallen off our neighbor's tree into our yard. We've been piling them up in our garden plot all year just waiting for that magical time known as Open Burning!
Tonight it was time to say goodbye to about half of the stick pile. So we called up Casey and Sheri, bought some hot dogs and marshmallows, and lit a fire in our backyard. How cool is that? We lit a FIRE in our BACKYARD!!! We burnt a bunch of sticks, roasted some hot dogs, made some S'mores, and had a wonderful time! This was Nathan's first time eating a S'more, and he enjoyed it thoroughly!
So... what are you doing next weekend? We've still got half a stick pile left... and I can always buy more marshmallows!
