Last week we made the long drive over to Marble Bar to attend the annual races with some friends of ours.
Country races are so much fun. We enjoyed some drinks in the summer sun while the kids ran amok on the grass. They loved seeing the horses, the jockeys and all the people dressed up. They had door prizes, music, festive food and fireworks. There were cowboys and jillaroos, bogans and fashionistas, townies and tourists.. all sorts from all over!
We incorporated the trip with a weekend of camping (pics and tips to follow) and a good time was had by all. Our friends have kids the same age so it worked out beautifully.. the older children did a fantastic job of wearing each other out, giving the parents more space to kick back and relax
