Royal Adelaide Show 2009

A bit late, but here are the photos from our day at The Show:

An alpaca just for Adds:

When I was little, there used to be lots of tractors to climb on. We could only find 3, and they were huge - but not to be climbed on:
The Firies had a great stand. James tried the 'stop, drop & roll' and when it came to donning a hat and a real (miniature) jacket, they did every child a short video of them sitting in the fire engine!

James and Eleanor on the 'elephanat' ride:

What else could James request but a pink butterfly?!

And our little fairy:

Holding and patting chicks in the Ag Learning Centre; always a favourite:

Meeting an enthusiatic kid:

Earning his tractor licence:

On the ferris wheel:

Beautiful colours as night fell:

An unusually quiet sideshow alley and show rides:

The children's rides:

Straight after our ride, just before dinner:

And after dinner:

I love the picture of James and the goat "getting him". He has such a great smile going on in the picture. Hopefully it was a "this is funny" smile and not a "omg! this animal is trying to bite me" smile.

Thank you for posting those cute pictures. You have two of the most darling children ever. They look a lot like you. I am in love <3
Your fair sounded like so much fun and what fancy face painting!
