Putter & Willow's Birthday Pawty in Australia

Our Airedale friends, Putter and Willow are both turning 4 today and they're celebrating their special day in Australia! This is our first trip to Aussieland and we can't wait!

Willow tells us that we're going to be climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge~

Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Look how HUGE it is!
And we'll be visiting Ayres Rock~

What an incredible rock! Do we need special boots to climb this rock, Willow?

We're visiting the Olgas~

They sure have lots of rocks in Australia! What an incredible country!

And we're supposed to see the Great Barrier reefs too!

I'm not too keen on water sports so I'm going to sit this one out! You can tell me all about the sights 1200 feet below, Mitch!

This is going to be one awesome pawty! We'll be flying AireRuby and from what mom tells us, this is a long trip on the plane so we'll be bringing lots of kangaroo snackies on the trip to share!
I think I hear AireRuby!

See you all in Australia!

Happy birthday, Putter and Willow! We can't wait to get there!

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

  6. How cute! You guys have fun at your pawty and dont eat too many "roo chips"

  7. We just looked at a globe and found Australia. That's really far away. And it looks like it is upside down. Do you need to wear special booties to keep from falling off the earth while you are there?
