Easter Show 2008

Yesterday we braved the weather and headed to the Easter show. The weather kept the crowds down which was great!3060 We checked out the fruit displays and the cakes (yum!) I wonder what happens to these works or art once the show is over? I hope someone eats them.3072We headed over to the woodchopping to see the ladies (Trudy wanted to check!) compete.3081After that it was time for lunch and the lunch time show. Lots of cars going fast and motorbikes doing tricks.3102Then off the see the animals. Trudy wants a cow for the house, but I don't think we have the room!3114After that we had a ride and then it was time to head home. It was a big day but lots of fun! The rest of the photos are here.

Mum and Dad Celebrate 60 years of birth

2958On the weekend Mum and Dad celebrated there birthdays together. Trudy, the boys and I worked hard all day to clean up the church hall and get ready.

It was great to see so many people I hadn't seen in over 10 years. I had to introduce myself to Stephen Low twice! (Last time I saw him he was tiny and had blonde hair!)

2973The big concern I had was a speech I had to give. I am still getting over my fear of speaking in public. I wrote it out and practised it a bit and when it was time to give it, I felt OK. (I even got a few laughs)2985Then it was time for cake. We got the largest one we could get and got a picture of Mum and Dad printed on it. Everyone wanted to cut up a bit and eat the guests of honour.2982A great night was had by all!
