I took some pics at The Royal Adelaide show that was around a month ago now (slack hey). Mr M is more into 'The Show' than me but we all have a great day and the kids were really good.
First stop: Animal Nursery.
Master M was having a good time until the balloons on the side show next to us started popping. He hates balloons and started freaking out a little (of course we had just handed over the money when we realised). The man running the side show was great and gave him a prize before he even started playing and at the end gave him a choice of three soft toys to cheer him up (he was still freaking out but we really appreciated his efforts, what a lovely guy - lol).
Take two. No balloons near by: check. No loud rides: check. All good.
This display was stunning so I just had to share.
Hmm. Would be nice if I could tell you a little about them but I was too busy taking pictures to actually find out who put all this together. Sorry!
Not a very scary scarecrow, but I think he is a cutie!
These ones...not so cute.
This guy is likely to make an appearance in my nightmares soon.
These pics are from the Show Museum.
See the pink 'Ladies Ticket'.
This little car is from the once iconic Mad Mouse ride that stopped running in 2007. I think it ran on Show Days for about 44 years and I can clearly remember my Dad taking me for my first of many rides on it. Trust me not many people looked so poised riding the Mad Mouse.
She doesn't appear to be impressed at all!
I said "no more garage sales" and then Mr M comes home and tells me there is a garage sale down the road that had some 'old' stuff that I might like. Oh dear...pics to come.
That's all folks!
