bonfire night

Saturday night was
AWESOME {33 people}
family, friends, laughs, good food who could ask for more
the kids started the fire at 5pm & it was put out at 2.30am
beautiful night, clear sky with thousands of stars, warmish night with a slight breeze
all the kids going exploring in the bush with torches
sitting by the fire reimanising, telling stories, laughing, having fun
toasting marshmallows, writing names with sparklers
second annual bonfire night was a success, even better than last year

was sick of the pink & its amazing how many other people use the barbie pink.
