Bonfires,S'mores and Ghost Stories
The bonfire was lit. The hotdogs were roasted. S'mores disappeared faster than marshmallows could be roasted. After eating the kids had fun giving each other rides (and dumps) in the wheelbarrow. Once all the energy was spent we sat around the fire telling funny stories and then as it got dark I read some ghost stories. I have the book "Tarheel Ghosts" that tells about the ghosts from allover the state of NC. It only took a few before the kids were ready to come inside and watch the movie Duma. Showers are all taken and kids are settled down for movie and sleep. Bets on who conks out first. We tried to watch this movie last night and Hope fell asleep in the first 5 minutes, then Woody who lasted about 15 minutes, Julie lasted 30 and Zack lasted about 45. They really want to see the movie but I have doubts they will last till the end after such a busy day.
