Catalina Festival

This weekend we went to the annual Catalina Festival. We live next to an old RAAF base that was used to fly Catalina planes during World war II. Every year the festival is a mixture of stalls and history, old cars and planes and some amazing fly-bys and acrobatics. 
The kids ate hot chips and ice-cream and despite all the stalls of things for sale the biggest hit of the day was the lady who brought along loads of small animals for kids to pet and cuddle free of charge. Guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, lambs and baby chicks. 
There was a constant chorus of "Take a photo Mum!" 
I forgot my camera but luckily my phone has a camera on it and here are just a few of the photos I took.
There were also three small petrol cars that the kids had fun on. I took a small  video clip and will try to find out how to get it from the phone to the computer when I am not half asleep!
Byron had fun too.... 
Once he found the beer tent!
