Chilliwack Fire

After celebrating Mayah's birthday at the end of summer, we realized it had been way too long since our last visit with our favorite Chilliwackians. And so we booked a bon fire.

In between our last visit, Charlie had gotten a new friend.

We may all have been a bit smitten.

While us grown ups sat around stuffing our faces and visiting, Seth got the kids to work in his mine/archeological dig.

With so many willing labourers, he was able to set one person to digging - so plowing through the dirt looking for interesting rocks or other artifacts.

Another person was set to breaking apart rocks with a sledgehammer.

And then two people sifted dirt.

As site foreman, Seth was always called in if there was something interesting.

These kids were so engrossed in their work, they pretty much forgot to eat.

They found a large piece of asphalt that needed to be dug out with bigger tools.

And of course, that meant they needed to ham it up a bit.

These two have been buds since they were months old. I love the camaraderie between them.

And off they went to keep on with their project.
