Silly string became a part of the water fight. Of course, the most fun was to attack the birthday boy, who quickly dunked his head in one of the tubs of water to "hide" from the silly string.
After the fun fights between friends, the boys each made their own dinner - something that M made in Cub Scouts when he was a boy. He calls them Chief Tinfoils. We had ground beef, onions, potatoes, and different seasonings for them to wrap up in the aluminum foil. Then, we all went to the back yard to cook them over the hot coals.
We also roasted biscuits on sticks over the coals. I think that each boy had two or three of these biscuit snakes before they ate their dinner.
Going along with the camping theme, M and I did our best to make a cake with a tent on it. We thought that we'd somehow be awesome after all of those Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss that we watch on TV. Apparently, the skills didn't brush off on us, but the kids loved the cake.
Blowing out all ten candles on his cake. R requested red velvet cake. It's not my favorite, but he loves the intense colors.
