Rottnest holiday 2011.....


Good times we had in Rottnest last week, so much fun to ride bikes everywhere and even funner now that I am 8 and can ride to the General Store to spend my pocket money "by myself"!!


At the pub, "Quokka Joes" for dinner one night....

Time for another swim....

At the "Aqua fun park"




Luc's sandy little toes...a photo he took himself!

I saw lots of fish under the sea in my new found love of snorkelling.  Daddy nought me a wetsuit and yes of course it had pink on it...(I know you were wondering about what colour it was!!)

Hanging in the unit we stayed in...drawing pictures of sea life!

riding bikes all day long...(when we weren't swimming or quokka hunting!)

Monkey giving Luc's "toy" quokka a cuddle!

Playing in the front of the unit..

Hello Luc...what have you got there?

All riding to the Basin for a swim...


Snorkelling at the Basin...

No that is not  a big unique fish...it is Daddy and I underwater....

Mummy and Luc on the beach...Luc I think is being grumpy here....

"HI"

Seaweed skirts are in fashion don't ya know!

View form the best beer garden in the world...

Quokka with a little baby quokka in the pouch...so cute

6.30am and we are up and quokka hunting...this one we named "Beetroot", we had names for lots of the quokkas although sometimes it was hard to tell who was who!

Peacock coming to visit us at the Pub...


Luc pondering his next move.....hey Luc I know, run up and down the beach a few times and wear yourself out!!

Luc insisting I hold his hand....I think he was worried about snakes....

Luc's sandy shoes....they were actually full of sand and Mummy thought they were cute??  Hmmm...whatever Mum! 

A swim at 6.30pm at the pub beach after dinner...

Quokkas came to visit us...

The Basin.....so refreshing...

oops...not meant to touch them...

parking the bikes...

the sandboy...

Daddy underwater....

Bye Bye Sasha...best dog in the world!!

Sasha has gone to heaven to chase tennis balls all day long.  In heaven she will be able to run again as she could almost barely walk in her last days....she also won''t be in any pain anymore.  We will all miss her so much as she was the best dog in the whole world!!!

Ok you want me to get the ball Sash.....

Ok I will get it.....

Ok, now what do I do....
I was 8 months old when I learnt that Sash LOVES the ball to be thrown and she would go get it.  We could play this for hours on end..

I would watch her sleep and wake her up by banging on the window...

Sash loved going to the beach...

She was even ok with me putting reindeer ears on her...although she doesn't seem overly thrilled....actually neither do I !!

I can tell here she is thinking.....do all dogs have to do this???

happy  at the beach.....

ok, I'll throw the ball for you....
Sash I'm kind of busy being a princess right now, but ok, I'll throw the ball for you...

Sasha kind of got use to her annual Xmas photo...I think red was her colour!

dreaming of chasing tennis balls....

Sorry Sash, it's raining, Im not throwing the ball for you today...

how about fetching a stick....

do you want to play Mummies and daddies with me Sash???

Luc crawling for a cuddle.....you were so patient and never ever got mad at us, even though we were kind of annoying at times!!

It's my 4th birthday Sash, maybe we could have a break from throwing tennis balls!!

I see you have the ball there ready....

Do you what to go for a walk???  Oh dear, I said the "w" word...that always got you very excited, almost as much as "Get the ball Sash"..."

Good doggy!

Where's the ball Sash?

ball in mouth...again...

I know what you're thinking.....new baby and your now placed in the back row.  I know what you mean, Luc kind of made it all about him didn't he!!!

this was the year before Luc arrived.....

faithful and loyal friend...

yes, I think that was your best side.....

avoiding Luc maybe....

waiting for the ice cream truck with Daddy and I....

here we go again.....

oh, you're not in this one...oh well, don't I look cute though....

You were so smart...you just always knew Luc wuld drop  his snacks....

Hey, where's my cracker gone??

who once to play ball?

getting greyer.....

at Sophie's 7th birthday party, all the girls loved you....

I loved you the most though, I'm pretty sure I was your favourite as well.
Miss you Sash, my BFF (best friend forever!!)
Love Sophie
