A family bonfire

My Aunt and Uncle have started having weekly bonfires now that my Uncle built a fire pit at their house.  They moved closer to us back in May/June of this year and since then we see them so much more.  We no longer have to cross the dreaded "waldorf" area to get to their house.  Now we just head down a few back roads and in about five minutes can be pulling up their driveway. 

Ava's favorite thing to do when everyone else just wants to sit by the fire is to run up to the house to walk on the "circle".  The circle is a large covered well (you know those things kids use to fall in all the time) that sticks up about a foot above the ground.  Normally she drags at least one person with her and literally hops up and walks circles around it.  Then when it got later my Mom, Aunt Denise, Uncle Doug, and Ava headed in to watch mickey mouse.  While Aaron, Chris, Jessie, Katie, and I sat around the fire talking about ghosts and all the creepy noises that emit from the woods late at night. 

I really enjoy our family dinners and bonfires and can't wait for the next one.  I do need to come up with a way to distract Ava from the circle and keep her down by the fire.

and just for fun here are two playful edits.
