Such Mischief! And Fun Times!

I've been working on a project that has required me to go through old family photos. What a walk down memory lane! Can you see the mischief in the boys eyes? This photo was taken around the campfire at our cabin when they were at the age where they loved chopping wood, building forts in the forest, collecting sticks and rocks, and building campfires. Brandon holds an axe. And Rylan is grasping a charred stick that he's been playing with in the campfire. Such memories! It's amazing what a picture can do to prompt memories of other things. It was during this time that we would frequently build a campfire and then let it burn down to embers. Then we would dig a deep pit under the fire space and fill it with potatoes, corn on the cob, and gluten-roasts that were wrapped in foil. We would cover the food items with newspaper and then fill the hole with the dirt that had been removed. After a hike, and several hours later, we would dig up our dinner --- and enjoy campfire baked foods that cooked themselves while we were off enjoying nature. Fun memories of family times.
