Australia Day

Today is Australia's birthday.  Actually it is the anniversary of the British settlement of this ancient land.
There are official celebrations and celebrations in backyards, parks, beaches....wherever there are Australians.

We headed to the river early to celebrate with our friends.

Bella always stays on the floor--she doesn't like car rides.

 We stopped by the Pie Shop on the way home and got a selection of Meat Pies.
 However, we had to SHARE only ONE!
 It was a chunky beef.
 Bella and I got right into our pieces.

 Roxy ran to her hideout.
We've had a gorgeous day with temps in the mid 80s, so we could spend it outside.

It's been a  fantastic day.
Happy Birthday Australia!
(We're hoping to have some more pie tonight.)


  1. Happy Australia day from Dip Elliot and Lynne!

  2. Happy Australia Day girls! You do all look spiffy with your patriotic bandanas and flags. But only one meat pie between you? Something not right there…
    Toodle pip!

  3. Hi Girls, we had a nice Australia Day here - not too hot, and I got to eat the ends off the snags from the BBQ !! The down side is I had to have a Baff, because tomorrow uncie is coming and bringing the buzzy clippers - so it looks like it will be haircuts all round. I'm going to try and hide under the bed!! They'll never find me there!!
