is our nearest show and this year we decided to go along, and what a great day it was...

Son #2 and I entered a couple of the 'tent' competitions. The most exciting part of the day for me is setting up our exhibits in the morning, ready for judging. The tent is full of people busy arranging and adding the final touches to their entries and eying up the competition! It's a wonderful atmosphere.

|My pride and joy... success!|
And later in the day there is the rush of nerves as you enter the tent and make a bee line for your exhibits, pushing through the crowds... quickly scanning the area for a red, blue or yellow card anywhere near your exhibit! And the joy when there is one!
Son #2 was thrilled to discover he had two cards by his photographic exhibit, as he was awarded a Special Cup!

The afternoon was spent enjoying the show... looking at all of the other exhibits, bumping into friends, having a go on some of the rides, and having the obligatory icecream!
