Last weekend we went to Perth Royal Show. We managed to avoid the overpriced rides and showbags and concentrated on the free stuff instead. The children attended a kids cooking workshop where they made healthy muffins and snack balls. We found out how to become a police officer (above). The children rolled oats and ground wheat to make flour and made fresh pasta from dough.
We found out about lots of crops and farm animals along with sustainable gardening and geology of WA.
Planting potatoes and digging them up again!

We visited the heritage displays and the vintage machinery. The cat tent was popular as were the animal petting pavilions. We also enjoyed the art and photography displays and live music.
We watched the grand parade, motorbike stunt team and fireworks.
11 hours later we were exhausted and bloated from the free tastings. Time to go home and we hadn't even seen everything!
