Apple Day

We cooked some apples over the bonfire. They were delicious; warm sweet apple juice dribbling down our chins. Yum.

Ben practiced his survival skills; putting up the tent and setting up camp; lighting the fire with his sparker (one of those thingys you see whathisface use on the telly to light his fires in the wilderness); cooking our lunch on the trangia stove (baked beans) and setting up a camp kitchen. He even wanted to spend the night but I whimped out on that one.

A sparker? Sheesh! I made my daughter use a flint and steel. Mainly, it kept her and her buddy busy for a loong time. I'm not sure they ever achieved ignition but they sure appreciated matches after that.

Aren't we cruel parents? I'm going to make him rub two sticks together next time; a sparker was too easy, specially with torn up bog roll as kindling.
