EXHAUSTED

Well the expensive, exhaustive day off the Royal Melbourne Show is over for another year...lol

We thought it would be smart to leave home after lunch as today was the first nice day since the Show opened and suspected that everyone would make a morning dash.

Well obviously there are lots of people out there that think the same way as me. It was packed....the car park was full...of course there is no carparking anywhere (without getting a ticket) so we had to walk about 1/2 a km...but it was free parking.

The sun was out, the sky was blue and it was a beautiful day.

The kids and John went on a couple of rides...I am the official bag holder...lol...then we had a look around at the animals etc. As a tradition the kids and John always go on the Ferris Wheel I am scared of heights so you aren't going to see me up there. Then our other tradition is face painting...again the kiddies looked fantastic.

Then before we knew it we had been there for 6 hours so finally my tradition of Hot Jam Donuts on the way out....before the long walk back to the car but this time piled up with Showbags and time to start saving for next year...lol

So here is my monster and fairy...I am off to bed to rest my aching feet! and perhaps have some lollies out of my show bags!

How on earth are you going to scrap such a scray face ?? LOL

That sweet little fairy though would be easy peasy to scrap !! LOL

Certainly looks as though you all had a grand day out.

I am with you re:- the Ferris Wheels............everyone else can have those things. Anything higher than a 3 step step ladder is too high for me !!

Have fun scrapping those cute little faces LOL
