Julie Grant and her 3-year-old daughter joined their friends Aviva Gold and Steve Dilger and their 3-old daughter for the girls' first experience roasting marshmallows.

The little girls braved mosquitoes and learned how to put marshmallows onto sticks so that they could roast them over the fire. “See what you’re going to do? You hold this end of the stick,” Julie Grant instructed the girls.  Using longer sticks so that they could stand further away from the flames, they toasted their marshmallows close to the coals. “But don’t put it on the fire!” said one of the girls. The verdict on the marshmallows was, “Pretty good. I want another one!”
