The Sydney Royal Easter Show 2013

We caught the train to The  Sydney Royal Easter Show onThursday. It was a rather warm day ( compared to past Easter shows which were usually later in April and cooler). I always love the excitement of the Show-- there is a special feeling there. Thankfully, we did not have to go into the crowded Showbag pavilion this time as we did not have any little children with us. ( when our kids were little, this was the first place they wanted to go to, and then we would have all these huge show bags to carry around with us for the rest of the day!).

Here are the photos taken at the Show.

Entrance to the Show
An interesting turkey
Cows waiting to be milked
Some of the quilts in the Craft pavilion
Folk art items
My proud moment!( Had to put it in again!!)

Beautiful embroidery
Gorgeous miniature works of art
Pig racing-- cutest little pigs wearing tutus
My favourite-- wood chopping competition
The fruit and vegetable displays
I thoroughly enjoyed the day and am looking forward to going to the Easter Show again next year.
