Cancer Research Family Day at Hamilton Races

We love a family day out, and always make Sunday our family day.
What makes a family day better? When it’s for a great cause like Cancer Research UK.

We went to the Cancer Research UK family day at Hamilton Race course on Sunday.
It was a fantastic day and the weather was lovely too, thankfully.

The first stop were the shows, instructions from the Mini Man and Little Lady. I was pleased with the shows that were there, as were the kids. We had to drag them away to see the horse racing.

Once promised we would go back to the shows after seeing some of the horses, we eventually left with enough time to pita cheeky little bet on.
The Mini Man picked number 4, because he is 4 seemed a good enough reason. We then moved to the fence to await the race starting, all the while my pair were shouting on their chosen horse to win.

Lo and behold, we didn’t win the race. But did have fun spurring the horses on.

We went for a walk around the huge grounds, stopping for our burgers (which were not too bad) and myself and the Mr had a cheeky pint and wine 😉
After we were all fed and watered, there was only one thing for it. Back to the shows!
Our last stop was the ice cream cone stall. Amazing! Cost a small fortune (£2 a cone) but they were very good.

All in all it was a fantastic day out and we will be looking out for more events like this.
