I admit, my family is a bunch of firebugs. When we decide to have a bonfire, we have a bon-FIRE.
Most of the wood on this lovely was from the old log cabin Larry and I are tearing down. Even though we're keeping a lot of wood, there is still much that needs to be burned. So we hauled a few loads to Derek's. He saved it for the Fourth, and this is the result.
Funniest part? The fireworks in town were going off around the same time, and Maggie thought it was a neighbor, competing!
All went well--the fire stayed where it was supposed to, the fireworks did what they were supposed to and we all had a great time.
Now we need some more old wood from the cabin to re-build the bonfire pile...
