We had the best day at the Better Homes and Gardens show. Just me and the girls. It was sprinkling outside and hubby dropped us off. We were a bit late for the Masterclass but when we got there it was so much fun. There were two spots in the second row that Fast Ed pointed out to us and so my eldest girl got to cook too. I spent some time helping her out while the youngest ate the chocolate on the table.
Here is my cake. I was rushed at the end because I was helping Miss 9 and when Fast Ed came around to check our cakes, he looked at her lop-sided, half crushed cake and said "...Wo-ow" with a big surprised smile on his face. I think we may just stick to my favourite cake mixes like the Betty Crocker Irresistables.
Here is the lovely Corrie from Retromummy at the Brother stall. I was too shy to tell her that I followed her but I said hello and she asked if the girls had made Christmas cards yet and I said "Yes, they had." She looked really relaxed and so lovely and looking way too young to have 6 children, lol.
We walked around l a bit and had some lunch before we had to go back to do the Ryobi Masterclass with Jason Hodges. It was actually the Ryobi guys who were showing us how to use the drills and make our planter boxes. Jason hung around and just presented at the end when we were planting our herbs. Miss 9 also had a chance to make her own box while her younger sister pranced around and wore the glasses. One of the Ryobi helpers came over each time to help her use the drills which were kinda heavy for her but I helped her too. It was the most fun we've had together. We took a photo with Jason at the end and that's her herb planter box. She said it was the best part of the show.
Watch out. A woman and her power tool! The youngest girl took this photo of me and I like it alot.
We went to the Food Stage again to watch Fast Ed cook for dinner guests. Man this guy loves to cook and he had so much energy. He'd been cooking so much and he makes it look easy! Plus he's funny and we enjoyed watching him live.
Finally we got home and we took a few more pics of our planter boxes. We ate some cake and read our BHG magazines and just enjoyed reminiscing our wonderful day.
I think we will definately go again next year and maybe bring one of the boys with us to enjoy the powertools. Ryobi had some free sessions where you can make a tool box but you must book in early for a session. The food was a bit expensive so if you want, bring your own sandwiches and snacks.
Now, time to think about Christmas and holiday planning!!!
