We went camping at Timothy Lake Campground near Mount Hood in Oregon in 2013. It was our family (Mom, Dad, Carter, and me) and the Mace family (Eric, Frannie, Nina, and Nate) (Laura had to go home early). Carter thought of making a big fire on the last day of camping.
We made the structure for the fire during the day. It was about a foot and a half tall and in the shape of a teepee. Dad was chopping wood and me and the other kids stacking wood in the middle of the fire ring. We put a mini cereal box filled with moss and paper in the middle for an extra treat. We knew the moss and paper would burn really well and make the fire really big for a few seconds. It was hard work that was going to pay off.
We are just about to light the big fire. We are all excited. We light it. The fire goes out. We light it in a few places and wait. It slowly started and then got really big. At its peak the fire was about two feet tall. When the mini cereal box caught fire, it turned the fire green because of the chemicals.
The fire was great for s’mores. It had hot fire to soften the marshmallow, some hot parts to get the marshmallow brown, and some warm parts to get it puffy. After we ate our s’mores, we sang camp songs around the fire. My favorite song was Little Spaceship.
I loved the gigantic s’mores fire because it made delicious s’mores and because we were with some really nice friends.
