Well, not really woodworking, but fun stuff nevertheless :)

From my blog. NOTE: Several more photos at my blog.

This year’s celebration of Independence Day was a blast, in more ways than one.

Sierra has been studying about Independence Day, and she knew the reasons for July 4. Of course, some of the information permeated onto her sisters in more or less accurate ways. And then, towards dusk, with more frequent calls for something to do other than play with their stuff in their living room, or outdoors in the Jungle Jim, it was time for the fun stuff: A weiner and marshmallow roast!

Here is some of the fun stuff:

Pretty cool skewers!:

Emily says, “We can do more than hot dogs…”:

After cooking, LOTS of fun!

What a great day it was, surrounded by our daughter and her wonderful family! We are truly blessed!!!

That looks really fun. The hotdogs look good. The marshmellows look like they could stay in the fire a little longer. But how much fun is that. Very nice. Have a great 4th.

Steve, Dave, and Debbie,

THANKS! We had a wonderful time! The memories will last a long time. The marshmallows were just going on the fire, with very fine control exercised by Emily herself. At four she is terrific with these finely-tuned hand tools :-)
