The Melbourne Show

WOW, what a full on day. Its amazing how tired you can get by just 'walking' around all day.

We left on the train this morning to The Royal Melbourne Show. We werent planning on going but then my darling husband pointed out that the feature animal this year was Pekins so then we just HAD to go :)

I was really looking forward to it as Malakai is really into his animals at the moment. And guess what, we had a great day :)

We started out the day milking cows :) I was super excited about this one as I have never milked a cow. We all got to have a turn. Malakai even managed to get milk out as well :) Good one Kai :) Indi slept through it though so she never got to show her milking skills - LOL

After that we went to get Malakai's face painted as a tiger (pic above). I have never seen him sit so still. He was sooooo good. Every body we walked past for the rest of the day gave him a little growl which he just loved.

Then we went off to the Nursery were we got to see a little chick being born, a mummy dog with some very new pups and lots and lots of kid goats and lambs. Oh, and chickens as well :)

We went to see the chickens after that! That was fun. I told Chris that he could stay in the petting area but he wanted to come and check out the birds too. I think he secretly likes our chickens, I told him I wouldnt tell anyone though - LOL

(Not everyday you see a chicken, tiger, horse sandwich)

We then went to have some lunch which was then followed by Malakai and Indi deciding they wanted a sleep. So, what did they do?? Jump up into the carriers and have a little nap. It was so lovely. I had Indi in the Pikkolo all day anyway and Chris popped Kai into the Ergo on his back when he wanted a nap. We then enjoyed a stroll around the Food Pavillion which was really nice :) We did come out with some Chai tea and some Organic Corn Chips (which I am currently enjoying) and some potato seeds. The lady from Slow Foods (where the potato seeds are from) promised that I would be able to grow them :)

Oh, also I found out that there is a Farmers Market on every week in Mulgrave which is about 20 mins from me - ACE!

After all that we were super worn out, we hopped back onto the train and came home. We changed trains in the city to which Malakai definitvely said, after he took the last seat in the entire train, "There's no room for you Mummy". He then went onto say that Tigers eat tomatos and apples for dinner - very funny.

When we got home Kai - aka TIGER - had a shower. Much to our delight Malakai emerged from the shower Malakai again ;)


  1. Wow, looks like a fabulous day out!

  2. Looks like you had a totally awesome day!

  3. I go to the Mulgrave farmers market, it's good but the number of stall holders fluctuates a bit, it's a pretty new market so things might settle down over the summer. It's 5 minutes away down the freeway from me, I love it!

  4. Hello, I am Richard Pobie(donoscew)sorry for my english but I am french. I found the picture with the tiger chicken and horse very funny. You have à beautifull family.
