Ascot Family Day
Posted on 2014/07/28 07:12:05 (July 2014).
[Sunday 27th July 2014]
We've recently made friends with an Italian couple who also have a daughter at Erika's nursery. They suggested today we all go along to the family day at Ascot racecourse - a slightly surprising combination of horse racing for grown ups with fairground rides and people dressed up as TV characters for the kids.
On arrival we gave Erika a go on one of the fairground rides - which predictably she almost immediately asked to get off. Later on we tried to have her picture taken with Postman Pat - she seemed to find him quite scary.
So the kids bits weren't really a great success. Surprisingly though Erika actually did seem to quite enjoy looking at the horses, from a safe distance.
I thought since we were there I might as well have a small flutter, and maintained my unbroken record of walking away from a day at the races with an overall profit, thanks to a satisfactory win in the first race.
