S'more work!

Well, Sunday's visit to the property was nice! The boys and I had just returned from 3 days out of town on Saturday, and didn't have the gumption for too much physical labor. We decided to work on making a rough firepit. The previous owners had a burn pile site, so we figured we'd just go with that location. The ground was very hard in that location--lots of rocks and clay and I only had a flat edged spade to dig with. I got it dug out enough for a small fire for the afternoon. The boys drove the tractor and trailer around searching out firewood. You can see them here unloading their trailer. We found some dead branches--right in the middle of a poison ivy patch! So, we left those and found some more up by the road. Once we had our first campfire going, we made s'mores! Right in the middle of the afternoon--yummy!
