We recently took part in The Big Toddle – a brilliantly named ‘sponsored walk for little people’ – and as well as being great fun it also ended with Sonny winning his first gold medal!
Horse racing, Olly Murs, an adventure playground, a boozy picnic and one happy toddler. Newmarket Nights was pretty much the perfect first live gig for our little family.
