We finally had our bonfire after a lot of weather watching and a delay. It was postponed to Sunday evening because it was supposed to rain on Saturday night. When it didn't really rain we were kicking ourselves for postponing. But then the wind kicked up and we were glad again. It wouldn't do to burn the woods down. =)

So last night we wondered if delaying it would result in anyone even showing up. We ended up having six families come. It was very low key and relaxing. Nothing like last year. =) Dominic certainly enjoyed it better this year. I was busy talking and holding Caitlin and just kept an eye on Dominic. I assumed that Jon would feed him some hot dogs. Jon asked and when Dominic said he wasn't hungry he let it go. Most kids aren't hungry when they are having fun so it wasn't until after everyone left and we were cleaning up that we realized that all Dominic had supper was a small piece of pizza and a ton of marshmallows. He still said he wasn't hungry, but I noticed he had found a box of crackers and was following Jon everywhere eating them. Ended up eating most of the box. So a nutritious supper of crackers and marshmallows! Yum! Guess it doesn't hurt every once in a while. When I put Dominic in the bath at 9pm he was so dirty that he turned the water brown. I had to empty the tub and start over after rinsing him off.
We had worship and Jon prayed. After he finished Dominic had to add his little prayer.
"And thank you for the marshmallows!" Guess they were a big hit.
