marshmallows by the marshes

We went primitive camping for Snow and Dave's birthday this year. It was a 2.2 mile hike from the trailhead to the campground. This was our campsite. We carried our food, water and shelter in three little (but very heavy) backpacks. This was our kitchen. Maku was so fascinated with the fire, he gathered firewood and made sure the fire kept going. And this was our toilet which everyone reluctantly used. My niece, Jin was the designated egg scrambler. She loves to cook.

Maku had a love affair with toasted marshmallows while Snow fell in love with bacon.

BACON! My little vegetarian who chants, "Don't eat the pigs!" when we pass the meat aisle and who thinks bug exterminators are evil, ate some meat. Ah, the effects of the wilderness.

So now we know that Maku picked up the pyro gene. :)
