Are you ready for too many photos of the Ekka?

I hope so, because here they are!  If not, look away...NOW

The day before the Snail got back home, I took Lolly to the Ekka (for our overseas guests, a big country fair kind of dealio held for a few days every year at these inner-city showgrounds).  We've been every year since she was 2!  Okay, so that's only 3 times, but still.

The best part for a Lolly is the giant baby animal feeding/poop centre.  We seriously spend ages in there. 

OMG tiny animal!

Feeding goats.
 From there, it's a straight route over to the horses.

 Dogs and cats are next.
More shots of Lolly patting things.
We hit the kiddie ride section pretty hard this year, it was the first year she really wanted to go on anything.
Excuse the finger over the lens, but check out that face!!  On the Ferris wheel with Nanna.

Riding the tea cups with Pop!

Pony ride with Nanna!

Overpriced and ever-shrinking strawberry icecream!
I'm sure (if you've read this far) that you get the gist of the Ekka from these shots.  It's a kid's paradise, basically.  This year she was quite interested in the show bags, too, and we chose the "pretty pony" bag, with an over-abundance of over-priced ponies.  Awesome!!  She's already counting down the time to next year when we get to go again. 

Can I just give a bit THANK YOU to Nanna and Pop.  And my lovely friend, Vanessa, who made that gorgeous top, which mean Lolly was the cutest identifiable kid at the Show :D
