It rained a lot. We started throwing mud on a pile, and everyone on Mars joined in. The pile grew, and we shaped it more and more. The inch of rain created a thick layer of moistened clay. The mound of mud was shaped in to a flower by some creative Martians. In the pit we made a fire, which over time hardened the interior wall of the fire pit. We discussed covering this fire pit in a lime wash (recipe), which would make a shell that might make it last longer.

Tomorrow Charlie, Sophia, and I plan to build a pizza oven in the morning. Charlie suggested dragging over a hay bale and building it up.
