Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

This morning I woke up to a little face watching me sleep and the first thing I heard was "Mum its show day, I'm so excited". It was 5am.
It's never an easy job to get everyone up, fed, bathed and in the car early on your own but this morning we were all out at Longford at 8.30am ready to pick up Granny and Pop for the show.
The show opens at 8am and we had to be early or else there would have been no way my huge double pram would get around once the thousands of people started trudging through the gates.
First stop... Home Industries Shed to check out how we went with our entries!

Here are our results...
 Winning Carrot and Walnut Cake 
 Second in Tomato Chutney
 Second with Pop's eggs.
 Second in the state fruit cake competition
 First in Tomato Sauce
 Poppy with her Veggie man, there were so many fantastic ones!
 Poppy with her winning chocolate crackles she also won best cooking for her age group.
 Poppy won the hand made necklace section and also won best craft in her age group.
Stoked with her crackles!!

We then had a look around at all the amazing other exhibits.

Pop on the double pram, only just fits!

Then we got to explored all the other goodies the show had to offer.
