But even better than that, it is country show time.
We are giving the big show a miss and heading out of town to visit the Carnies this year.
The girls and I are escaping AFL footy weekend and going to the St Arnaud Show instead.
They even have a facebook page!
|This is the first ever "Happy Face" Immy has drawn. (In case you couldn't tell!)|
I read out to Popps that the winner of the drawing competition gets $5.00, she was very disappointed and let me know that she was hoping for a ribbon or a certificate.
There will be limited rides to be pestered about and the showbag stand will be a stand, not a pavilion.
There will be free face painting and lots of animals, pony rides will be offered.
BBQs with real meat from local farmers and butchers. Maybe a hot doughnut van, but not endless options of junk.
There will be cake stalls and motorbike displays, whip cracking and sheep herding. We wont miss anything, because they pretty much all occur on the same
Kids under five are even free to attend and last time we went there was fireworks.
The Mayor (also known as Poppy) will be judging Miss Tiny Tot. I suggested we enter Immy to really mess with his ethical standards...can you pick your own granddaughter to win Miss Tiny Tot? Can you not?
I must go now, I am thinking of entering my Echidna Cake into the masterchef competition and have to get my entry in.
