Theory Thursday: Burning Marshmallows

In our graham cracker post, I talked about how much Jake loves roasting marshmallows. Absolutely loves it. I think he likes roasting them more than eating them . . . maybe. 

But like I said, it's not really roasting, but burning. He plunges the stick with the marshmallow straight into the fire, intent on setting it ablaze. Once the marshmallow is engulfed in flames, he laughs an almost evil laugh. He stares at the helpless marshmallow as it slowly melts and disintegrates into nothingness. He then turns to grab his next victim from the bag.

It really is a very scientific process. We documented it for those who have never had the opportunity to experience this phenomenon for themselves. 

Or maybe it's because Jake enjoys it so much.

Don't worry, Leighton and I were both right there with him. We also had a bucket of water next to us. No one was harmed in the making of this documentary.

I cannot guarantee the same about the marshmallow.
