Hatchet day

For FHE this week, we had a campfire and roasted hot dogs and had s'mores. It was really a lot of fun. The guys were in charge, but they didn't have any kindling. They did have some cardboard, and they had some wood, so out came the pocket knives and a hatchet.



"A hatchet?!!" you say? Yes, a hatchet.

"Hey dad, i totally forgot to pack my hatchet when i came up to school, would you mind sending it to me? Thanks."



Kathleen was in charge of lighting the fire.
It took about 957 matches before the flame became FIRE.








After a slow start, the fire remembered that it wanted to be FIRE, so it got to business and began to BURN. (P.S. if you want to see a kinda funny accident, sacrilegious photo concerning this fire and some wood, let me know.)


Kathleen thinks hatchets are funny. This is a grave mistake: Hatchets are not funny, not funny at all.

Oh, my goodness...this is great I get to be the first one to comment! Man Kathleen is always thinking things are funny when they aren't wow. It looks like it was a good time though...leave it to a bunch of home grown Idaho boys to bring a hatchet to a bonfire but not be able to help light it without Kathleen using a million matches.Where is that at anyway?

Pine View! I know, huh! it was so... Pine View-ey. And Tyler and Clarke and Patrick and Jeremy's apartment and their FHE girls all rode by on tandem bikes!

I am dissappointed tara that you think that I would have to use a million matches to light a fire...i am more skilled than that...I'm black...it only took a half million. By the way Kyle...looks better with a gun...not a hatchet, in case anyone was wondering.
