Hooray, two long planned projects finally finished, thanks to my son and husband. I'm great at coming up with ideas and starting projects. They are good at follow through (especially when it involves s'mores.)
First, the rain barrel is hooked up.
Having this setup makes me realize how quickly a rain barrel can fill in a heavy storm, and how quickly it empties when it doesn't rain for a while. Onto the project list... a few more barrels.
Second, the fire pit! We roasted marshmallows and put them between chocolate crackle cookies that the kids made. It was a big improvement on the traditional s'more.
Jack built the fire pit almost single-handedly and is also great at making fires.
My mom had her first s'more this evening. She likes to char her marshmallows.
My daughter likes hers slowly and gently browned.
