EJ has family land not far from us.
They were digging out some ponds and needed to clear a bunch of cedar trees.
Once that work was done it was time for the biggest bonfire ever!
Of course a bonfire requires a hot dog roast and some s'mores. Even though the fire doesn't look that way it was still very hot!
B man being silly eating chips
Q is a man with style. I mean not everyone wears a tie to a bonfire.
W taking a break from running all over the land to pose for a picture.
Lil' Ruthie is ready for dinner. Sippy cup in hand and chips near by.
Papa and Grandma deliver the dogs.
D is happy if he has his sucky finger.
E is still trying to figure out why he has to get in this ridiculous car seat and go places.
Sister is pretty impressed with those hot dogs.
The marshmallows were pretty good too.
"I'm sticky" she says.
Me and my man.
Papa and baby D.
The whole crew.
This time on the land is extra special to my man. He brings the big kids out here to play regularly but rarely are we all there. These acres mean a lot to him. He has dreams of building out here one day. We talk about it often. If God allows, we will build in a few years.
But for now, it is time to head home and tuck our six blessings into bed. Perhaps in a few years we will just walk to our house on the land. I bet my man will be dreaming about that tonight.
