Show Week!

Last week here in Adelaide we had the 'Royal Show'.
 As a treat the girls and I went along with a friend and her children.
 It was a miserable day with lots of showers but my girls had lots of fun.
 They had some lovely rides...
 The Ferris Wheel ride even with the wind and rain was great...
 
 
 Boy it was going really fast around...
 Did you hear us squealing???...LOL
 Another favorite was the Carousel...
 I remember loving this ride as a kid...
 
 
   The colorful dancing horses going up and down, round and round.
 
 
 The hot donuts from the Donut Van...yumm yumm
 and yes the girls had been darting here and there
 looking at everything that they were hot...
 Oh I wasn't, to me it was freezing cold...
 
  We had lunch there among the crowds and also
 the girls bought a show bag or two
 That was a feat in itself searching for the best buy...
 Thankfully it was not busy in show bag hall 
and the bag they choose was
 reduced so we grabbed a bargain.
 
 
 Then Mummy wanted to see the quilts on show...
 and Miss K wanted to learn how to make lace...
 
 Then on Saturday it was off to 'Stacks' at our local church 
for some more Carnival fun...
 
 
 and the girls wanted face painting... I think they look fabulous.
 
 
 Show week was super busy for us and mummy needed lots of rest
 So this week is a stay home, rest, recoup, some inside days.
 
 Hope your week is great whatever you do.

 Sweet Hugs

The looks on the girls' faces shows they had a great time. The Melbourne Show starts in few days and we'll be going. It's great taking your own kids to something you did as a child.
