Friends, Fire, and S'mores!

Today we had some friends over for a barbecue (my family barbecues a lot. It's just easy and keeps the heat outside!) Anyways, we had some friends over that I haven't seen in two years.  We had chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs, watermelon, corn on the cob, cookies and my sister baked some cupcakes. Yum, right?
After we ate, we headed outside and my mom started a fire in her fire pit so we could roast marshmallows and make S'mores.  I don't like marshmallows, but I love taking pictures of them...and fire, of course.  When it started getting dark, I grabbed my tripod and tried to take pictures of the stars, but it didn't quite work out as well and I wish it had.  My dad said it wasn't dark enough.  I think I need a better zoom lens as well. I did get a nice picture with some stars though. 
My sister was playing with the fire, sticking a stick in and then blowing the fire out. when my mom came back with more firewood, she had some flat boards that my sister took and started drawing on. The first one, she drew a Hangman game.  The second and third, she decided she was going to draw me and my mother and preform voodoo on us.  Yeah, my sister is weird.
