The Royal Adelaide Show

It's showtime here in Adelaide and Mum and I made our annual pilgrimage on Sunday with the kids.  Here is our day in picmonkey collages....

Our day started off with fondling some cute animals in the Learning Centre....

And we followed that up with some pig diving (as you do on a Sunday)...


Then it was off to enjoy some fairground attractions....

My husband then came in to pick up the kids so Mum and I could nanna-up and enjoy the crafts and cooking displays in the Goyder pavillion without any whinging....

These magnificent floral displays were by David Ruston....

Here is a sample of some of the winning quilts.....
 And of course no Australian show would be complete without some prize winning pumpkin scones, some lamingtons and a jam roll.

We also ate like Vikings while at the show but am too ashamed much of a lady to show you that carnage, which may or may not have included many hot donuts, an oversized baked potato and some kind of curly, deep-fried potato on a stick.


  1. Looks like a great day out. I love shows like that.

  2. What a perfect day ...family and QUILTS and FOOD!!! ;)

  3. I have never heard of pig diving! Looks like a fabulous time.

  4. Pig diving!? ;-) Looks like you had a great day!

  5. My jaw is still on the floor from seeing the pig diving. Sounds like you had great fun and the quilts are lovely.

  6. Love the Royal Show! Nice that you got to do all the best bits without whinging too!


I'm glad you popped by, your comments really make my day.
