catch up photos...

Just went through some photos from the last month and look what turned up....

Some photos of a short break we were able to take during the last school holidays.  We visited Siesta Park resort in Bussleton  for 4 nights and had a great time.  Siesta Park was a place which my family visited year in and year out when I was a child, so it brought back great memories.

Ashlyn and Andrew enjoyed the swings together:


Siesta Park Resort has some great adventure play equipment - Shiana's expression here shows how much they were enjoyed:

Siesta Park resort is right on a beautiful beach.  The last day we were there it was even warm enough for the girls to swim.  For the rest, we enjoyed fishing from a row boat we hired, and crabbing and fishing from this jetty (and we even caught a few!) ...


Later on, when back in Albany we visited a local farm where the kids got to enjoy the animals.  Shiana, especially is in her element with animals so here are some pics with her enjoying them.  The rabbits...

the birds...





And here is are a couple of photos of our very loved and spoiled dog.  Cuddling Shiana inside (a very common sight)...



And getting a good rub and cuddle from Andrew...

And on the 21st of October we were able to celebrate Shiana's 11th birthday.  We are so thankful for this girl.  She's our family clown, full of life and fun, but also very caring and loving.  We praise God for her.
And due to her love of horses, naturally I had to figure out some way to make a horse cake...

...which Shiana loved...

And a small party this year (just 5 girls), but still lots of fun...
