    Local pet shop had an exhibition including a fancy dress parade.

    Here is Charlie, dressed as 'Aussie Goat' he won first prize! $100 voucher for the store.

    And here is his brother Chaplin, who was dressed as 'VB Goat' - VB is the most popular beer around here. He won third prize! $25 voucher. So we did amazingly well!

    Charlie had empty VB cans in his saddlebags, and both of them drink out of a can on command, so we filled an empty VB can with coke and let them each have a drink during the judging of the fancy dress :)

    These are two of my beautiful nephews, Zack and Logan, enjoying the festivities (which included hair dye - they dont always look like that)

    My sister Rachel and her boys (plus one still being baked) having a ride in the sulky pulled by Chaplin.

    that looked like a lot of fun. So the 26th of January is Australia day? is it for anything special?

    Like the 4th of July her is Independence Day here where we celebrate our independence from Great Britian. It is a big national holiday with speaches and parades and picnics, food followed by fireworks at night.

    All you ever wanted to know about Australia Day ...

    Thanks everyone! We did have a great time!

    I will post pics later of what I bought with the vouchers ... a fold-up dog crate which is just perfect for transporting little kids - Dancer (the one with the sore eye) is in it at the moment.
