Bon Fire

Matt and C are visiting for a few days. Last night we decided to have a bon fire with the brush from the fence we had built a couple of years ago. We had had some rain recently so we didn't think it would get out of hand.
E's first order of business was to get a marshmallow stick ready. This proved to be a brilliant idea because by the time we were roasting marshmallow's it was pitch dark so finding a proper stick was difficult.
Matt pick out a spot to try his luck starting the fire. I think he has forgotten anything he may have learned in boy scouts about fire starting. His never did work.
J went straight for the paper fire starting technique. He lamented the fact that paper just doesn't burn like it use to.
I was greatly hampered by Emma and we all had to share one box of matches.
We finally did get it started. We had to resort to J's paper technique however.

We enjoyed to fire, roasted marshmallows and had smores.

In fairness - no one was able to start a fire without using some paper.
