Well, Saturday is the big HeartFest in Kansas City. It is really big because it is held at the local themepark, Worlds of Fun. So not only are there rides, but also several well known Christian bands. I signed myself and my daughter up to work because there was no way for us to afford to get Seth into the show. Doing it this way he gets in free. The catch? I have to be at the themepark at 9 a.m. and I cannot leave until my shift is over...that would be 10:30 pm.
Do you know it is fore casted to be 103 degrees tomorrow? On hot pavement. Oh, ya. I'll be roasting. Just not marshmallows.
Anyway, I wasn't going to let our campfire day go by without me joining along...we just had to do it a couple of days early. But I saved the post so that I could link it up to Sharon's Blog. She'll be hosting the entire campfire day of fun and I sure hope you join in for me.
We did have a campfire of our own. In Mo they are banned so we did an indoor one again this year. NEXT YEAR WE ARE HAVING AN OUTDOOR CAMPFIRE FOR THIS DAY. There, I shouted. Think it will help?
Stephen and my teen sewing student Cierra are blowing on the flames to get them going, LOL:
We turned the lights back on to eat.
As you can see our fire wasn't much, but in the dark it doesn't matter what color tissue you use. It shows up glowing with the strobe light.
If you hop over to Stephens Blog, you will find out about the cooking of the S'mores and other fun S'more activities.
Then I taught Cierra how to do EPP.
Look at those hexies in her sewing box!
She is really a fun student. The other student has fallen by the way side, but this one just loves quilting.
We sat by our campfire that day and worked on her hexies. I think she has a great start, don't you?
I hope you all are roasting in a much different kind of way than I am today!
