Monster Marshmallow

Anthony squashed a bowl of marshmallows together to make one big, glee-inducing monster marshmallow.

Cousin Josh soon followed suit, with a smaller monster marshmallow more appropriate to his four years. I asked whether I could take a picture, to which he replied “No, thank you.”, and I gave him a sad look and said that I wanted to show a picture of his marshmallow to his Daddy (who didn't make the trip up this time), and after a bit Josh relented and displayed his creation for the camera...
