Every year my kids love going to the Royal Melbourne Show.
So off I send them with Mr G.
I hate big crowds you see, my memories of
going to the Canberra Show (one which ran over 3 days) herald
memories of crowds, dust or mud and major personal discomfort.
So I don't usually go
But this year I did!
There were some gross traditions. Hello heart attacks on a stick!
Lots of colour and rides to be ridden. Angus, kid #1 and I made a HUGE
mistake by riding a VERY scary ride which took many, many, many minutes
There were stinky animals
And dollies on sticks - Miss M loved this!
The slide was chosen by all who witnessed Angus
and I cheating death on the previous ride, as a much more
sensible option. Martha looked hilarious coming down the slide
full pelt, leading the charge with her dolly on a stick.
Yes, it did occur to me the potential danger in allowing this - parent of the year here!
Over all it was pretty good fun and I enjoyed the craft pavilion immensely, but sorry no
photos there. Have you ever entered an item in the show? How did it go?
Should we consider doing next year?
