Show time again

We had a nice Easter, with the house still covered in chocolate. Once again we made the trip to Sydney Royal Easter Show, this time we had no animals in show, which made it an easier trip.
We stayed the night before, close to the show and arrived at the Show by 9am, went straight to the rides so we didn't have to hear about when we were going there all day. They chose the Super Slide and Missy went on the Roller Coaster, while H-HO chose the slower log ride.
Next we had to check out the Poultry, where we caught up with fellow poultry fanciers. A quick walk thru the sheep pavilion to the Big Top Amphitheatre to grab a seat for the circus show and Alvin the Chipmunk show.
Off to grab some food and we took a seat for Speckle Park Cattle judging, as the afternoon creeped on, the showbag questions started. We headed that direction admiring the art work and regional fruit & veg displays. The showbag pavilion appeared in front of us as we took a deep breath and headed into the pit of tired and cranky kids and parents, doing laps of the pavilion trying to decide on showbags. H-Ho held on tight to Missy's chair and we pushed our way- ever so politely thru the crowd. Our kids had pre-decided on their showbag, so it was pretty painless for us really. We left the show at 7pm with two tired kids but in good spirits ready for the long drive home arriving at 11pm.
