Now, a few weeks ago, E & J decided to grow some sunflowers. Of course, being the helpful (nosey) Airedales that we are, we had to help them out!
Here's J checking out the flowerpots with Cassidy keeping an eye on things.
And E clowning around for the camera too.
I thought I ought to get involved to try and get them to concentrate on the job in hand. Didn't really work though.
And then I got a bit distracted because I spotted my Kong on the table.
And this weekend when the girls came, the seedlings were big enough to be planted outside. As usual, little sis had to be in the thick of it.
The little pots were actually made of something biodegradable, so they could be planted too, nice and easy!

Anyway, this morning we wented to a very fun place. It be called Birdland, but it not really be a land, just a place with lots of birds.
It be really exciting. The first thing we seed was some King Penguins having their dinner. They eats big fishies and they just swallow them down in one gulp! That one that has all the feathers on his back be a baby and that be his baby feathers that he be losing.
The lady be telling us all about the penguins, them laying their eggs, where they live in the world (other King Penguins, cos obviously these ones live here, tee hee!).
E & J beed watching from the top of the rockies. Big Harry tried to climb up but daddy said noooo, you'll fall off.
After we had watched the penguins, we looked around the rest of the park. Now me no can remember the names of all the birds, but me will try. Maybe you will know some of them anyway. With thinks this one be a Cockatoo. It said on a sign it may bite, so we didn't get too close!
There beed lots of weird sculptures like this one all around the park. Me be glad real insects no be this big.
This be a Toucan. He got a huge beak, or maybe it be a bill, me no be sure.
See, they even be bigger than Big Harry!!

I hope those of you who attended Snowball & Blue's birthday bash enjoyed yourselves. I had a jolly nice time, and very much enjoyed spending some time with the lovely Maggie.
After the party, young Cassidy, and BabyStan (who was celebrating his 1st birthday) sloped off together, though under the watchful eye of young Asta who I hear did a very good job of chaperoning the young lovebirds.
They headed here, to Fistrall beach in Cornwall. Look at that sea! I'm not a water lover, but even I fancy dipping my big fuzzy feet in that!
Looks like Asta had her work cut out keeping an eye on those scallywags. BabyStan and I had a gentleman's agreement that there'd be no hanky panky, so I trust him at his word.
I think they were probably far too busy chasing each other around and playing bitey face like a couple of loonies to get up to any smooching anyway! Poor little Asta looks like she's having a job to keep up with those Airedale long legs!
Aw, I do have to admit that they make a darling couple. And they even saved a slice of cake for me so you can't way fairer than that!
