The temperature neared 60 by 2 o'clock, and Natalie reminded me of my promise to have a wienie roast at the cabin, if there was a warm-enough day during Christmas vacation. So we loaded up the little red wagon with hot dogs, marshmallows, and other necessary items, put the halti on Sadie, and headed off.
It was a nice, relaxing time, and the only reason we came back at 5 was that it was getting dark. And the girls' parents were liable to pick them up at any time.
It really is fun to play with fire, and there's just something about the popping and crackling, and the smell of smoke, that calms the soul.
