Barny's little adventure with the Little ones

We have been taking part in the Barny bear little adventures challenge over on Mumsnet, we were sent two packs of Barny bear cake bars, one strawberry and one chocolate to take on a little adventure and see what we thought of them.

It was a lovely hot sunny day and the Little ones had been playing in the garden all morning, we decided to take them swimming to cool off. We didn't tell them we were going swimming, we just said we were going to the park, the leisure centre we use is in the centre of a park with play area, museum and lake that we often visit to let of steam and feed the ducks. We surprised the Little ones with their swimming bags once we'd arrived. They were excited (we don't go swimming as often as we should) and insisted on carrying their own bags.

We had a lovely time in the pool, smiles and lots of splashing all round. We stayed in until we were beginning to feel cold, Little 2 had gone a bit blue around the lips, and headed out into the sunshine to warm up. I had slipped some Barny cake bars into my bag for after our swim knowing the girls would be peckish. Daddy and I warmed up with a cup of coffee while the girls tucked into Barny.

Little 2 really got stuck into hers, she loves both the chocolate and strawberry ones, Little 1 wasn't so keen on the jam in the strawberry ones but loves the chocolate flavour. Mummy just had to try one, for the purpose of the review obviously, and liked the chocolate one best too. Yummy.

After our little refuel and warm up in the sun we headed off to the play park. Little 2 fell over and grazed her knee and bumped her cheek so wasn't the happiest little person at the park but managed a smile or two towards the end. She really was very tired after a busy active day. 

Little 1 showed off her skills on the swing, having only learnt to swing herself this summer.

A bit of climbing and turns on the slide then it really was time to head home for tea. The Little ones enjoyed their surprise swimming adventure and were pleased that Barny had come along too.

Barny cakes come in packs of five individually wrapped teddy shaped cakes with either chocolate, strawberry, apple or milk flavour filling, we tried the strawberry and chocolate ones. They are available in all major supermarkets at an RRP of £1.69 but can often be found on offer for £1 which is when I sometimes buy them for Little 1's preschool lunchbox as a treat. They do not contain any artificial colours or preservatives.

N.B We were sent 2 packets of Barny bear cakes to try, one chocolate and one strawberry, in return for this post. This was not a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions within are our own honest feelings.
