Pierson and a campfire.

Pierson is a bit of a pyromaniac. He loves having a campfire. 
We have had such a wet summer that we had only two or three fires as opposed to last year when we had at least one a week. 
 Each weekend Pierson asked, "Can we have a fire PLEASE?"
 So this night when we said we were going to have Pierson was VERY excited! As the fire got going it was hot and drying his eyes so...
 He ran inside to get his Buzz Lightyear goggles.
 Then the battle began! He began using his new Tae Kwon Do moves on the falling ash!

 Then he began to catch them like snowflakes.
 He went back to his martial arts moves... that was until one that was still red fell towards his face.
 Luckily that not did hurt him..
 unfortunately it just strengthened his resolve to take down ALL the ash!
 I couldn't believe how long his power struggle went... I was begining to wonder how we would get him to ever stop.

In the end it only took one word...
 Marshmallows!
Gotta love a backyard campfire!

Love his enthusiasm!! I think it is a boy thing - Ian was also fascinated by fire. Glad you found the magic word to distract him!
