In case you're living under a rock (or just living outside of Victoria) you would know that today was Melbourne Cup Day - a public holiday in Victoria. Woo! We celebrated the day by heading to Wangaratta (just for a change) to take Ma to the races. We had such a lovely day and I must say that we were 4 of the best-dressed punters there! I'll let you decide for yourself though...

First up we have Wifey, wearing her red dress she recently purchased on line, accessorising with a Mimco necklace given to her by her darling Hubsband as an annivchrisbirthday present. Chanbe's outfit was purchased at the local op-shop for a total of $2, with accessories made with love from 8-10pm last night by his Mama, with the help of his Dadda and Ouma. Hubs is looking dashing in his pinstripe pants that he wore on the day he made his vows to Wifey, matched with a lovely white paisley shirt and topped off with black suspenders. And Ma is wearing a delightful silk dress she picked up whilst in Melbourne last week, paired with a stunning cardi and super-cute fascinator.

Can we see a bit more for the final judgment? :-)

 Sorry, is this just too cute? (as IF I'm sorry...)
  I just wish I had thought to enter Chanbe in "Fashions on the field."
Three cheers for Chanbe's outfit! Hip hip hip!

We really had a lovely day and the weather was spectacular. We've had a lovely time with Ma here, and will be sad to see her go home tomorrow, but we know we'll be seeing her in just over a month back in Brisbane. Okay okay. I'll give you just one more ;-)
