Do you know what is better than having a picnic in the park? Having a picnic in the park with lots of friends AND dressing up. You see today is the day of the Race that stops a nation - the Melbourne Cup.
Normally we would have a picnic in the 'other park' but because it was likely to rain we wouldn't have anywhere to run to to get out of the rain. Instead we decided to have a picnic in our park. We set our TV up outside Chloe's house, set up a table of food to share and spread out the picnic blankets.
It was a great day and lots of people came to our picnic. I dressed up and wore a pretty dress and a fascinator in my hair, just like all the beautiful people who were walking through our park on the way to the real races.
Luckily wearing a pretty dress didn't stop me from having fun, I could still have fun and climb trees, I just took off my shoes like the girls at the real races did to walk home!
When the races were over on the TV we played races in the park. Dad wasn't very good at racing on the little twisty buggy so we helped him.
Everyone had a great day at our picnic and luckily it didn't start raining until the picnic was finished.
