Gingin Expo 2009

The kids & I waited all morning for the thunder & rain to stop and by lunch time I couldn’t distract them any longer so we put on our boots & hats and went into town to the Expo. Gingin’s biggest day to shine but all that shone were the new tractors &  farm bikes in the rain. Due to which the crowd was way smaller than previous years . Rain in rural Australia is always welcome but I couldn’t help feeling cheesed off for the organisers, stalls holders and exhibitors.

I normally love this day out with my children as it has a large raw fibre content for me (something for all the family!) but all the drenched animals made the weather more miserable.
