Bonfire Night!

Last night we put on our winter woolies and headed to my sister's house which is on a 5 acre block for the kids first ever Bonfire Night. My sister and her hubby have been building the 'bonnie' for months with dead trees and bits of old timber from here and there and the pile was rather impressive when we arrived just as the sun was setting.
We lit it up just as the sun dipped below the horizon and all the kids were in awe as the flames went up!
Sparklers, pizza, light sticks, beanies, cousins, torches, gumboots, full moon, trailer rides, marshmallows, sleeping bags & lots of giggles in the dark made for one memorable night!!
