We Dig the Beach

We were quietly (snicker) sitting on the beach, and Rooster decided a little digging was required.

And when the Rooster is having fun (which is almost always), he gets that infectious grin.

So Kiska had to try it out.

Even the Queen got her paws dirty.

Most enthusiastically, Cheesewhiz dove in.

Did we say enthusiastic? Look at that sand fly.

Yep, enthusiastic.

And when Cheesewhiz gets into something.

She really gets INTO it.

Uh, Cheese, can I have my hole back?

Fine, I was bored with it anyway.

    Where’s the part where hu-dad lays in the hole and you all cover him up to his neck and then sit on the mound?

    Looks like a trench she was making:) Bet the sand way down was cool on her tummy.

    Wow, that’s a serious hole! How come you haven’t tunneled out of Sibe Quentin yet?

    I love the legs straight out behind in the last picture.

    My first thought was, woo hoo, it isn’t in the backyard!

    I told you, looking for pie-rate treasure is the best!! Did you ever find the pie?? I didn’t, but I’ll just dig more next time I go!!!

  12. Ice 'n Ayla on January 7, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    Me’n Ayla wish we could come and dig on your beach, too! What a wonderful time we ALL could’ve had. Such great pictures of your fun!

    My guys are always disappointed if a trip to the beach doesn’t turn up a rotting walrus or at least a fish.

  15. brooke & Darwin on January 7, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    FUN!!! It looks like everyone had a blast!
    I wish there was a good beach like that around here for Darwin to enjoy.

    Toooooo cute! & holy crap! They dig just like my Sitka only you have 6-8 of them helping. Too bad nobody wanted a “Lazy River” running through that sand. Or maybe a few trees planted right there!!!

    Rusty, swear to God, you could sell snake oil with that grin! I’d buy it from you! I can see why everybody else thought that hole digging would think it was fun after seeing you with it. Cheezewhiz, you’re a girl after my heart! Bunny says she’d go to the beach with both of you any day. She’s a fan of digging herself.

  18. Sage on January 7, 2011 at 10:07 am

    That is some serious digging! I bet we took lessons from the same teacher…..

  19. KB on January 7, 2011 at 8:37 am

    It looks like the red team just lies around and snoozes on the beach 🙂 I love Rusty’s grin – it is infectious!

  20. Pamela on January 7, 2011 at 7:25 am

    Ummmmm, cool sand!

    And wouldn’t you love to know just what kinds of interesting creatures they could smell there too?

  21. Minnie and Mack on January 7, 2011 at 5:56 am

    Wow, what fun!

    Drools and licks,
