Their little boy Ray, 14 months, did not appear to be with them during the outing.

The family could be seen crowding round one of the games stalls as they through hoops over bottles in order to win.

The Russian star met former professional athlete Ben after they were paired together on Strictly in 2013. 
Following their pairing on the dancefloor, Ben left his wife at the time Abby, to embark on a relationship with Kristina. 
At the time Abby branded ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional Kristina ‘a f**king Russian dancer’, when asked how she felt by a journalist.

Wahey! They appered to be in great spirits during the night out
Abby, 42, made the comment back in 2015, less than a year after her ex-husband Ben left her for Kristina after being partnered up with the blonde bombshell.
Speaking in an interview in September, Abby shared her remorse while admitting that despite Strictly having caused the breakdown of their marriage, she feels the show ‘did her a favour’ in hindsight.
Abby told new! magazine: ‘At the time of the break-up, when hugely stressed, I once angrily referred to Ben’s partner as a ”f***ing Russian dancer” to a journalist hassling me. I regret that now.’

Speaking in 2015, Abby remarked to The Sun: ‘My husband, who I was with for 23 years, unconditionally loved and was completely loyal to in every respect, has left me for a f**king Russian dancer.
‘The last two years have been the most traumatic thing to ever happen to me. He’s done the dirty on me. I want people to know.’
Opening up to new! about watching her marriage ‘disintegrate’ before her eyes, Abby – who fell in love with Ben after meeting him aged just 16 – explained: ‘I sat in the [Strictly] studio audience each week smiling, but looking back, I see I was terrified.’

She added: ‘Thankfully, I don’t recognise that frightened woman now, I’m so different. Perhaps Strictly did me a favour in the long run.’
While admitting that she won’t be watching Strictly this year as ‘even the music triggers too many feelings’, Abby also made sure to stress that Ben ‘was and still is a fantastic hands-on father’.
Revealing that the news Ben and Kristina were expecting a child of their own felt ‘like a dagger’ when it broke in 2016, Abby bravely added that ‘she couldn’t imagine going through this hell’ but insisted ‘if I can, anyone can’.
She also shared that she was unable to eat, sleep or ‘get out of bed’ when her and Ben’s marriage ended and suffered two mental breakdowns.
Looking to the future, Abby – who has since found love with her partner Dave – gushed that she is ready for her next chapter.
