They were heading to the beautiful Forest of Dean about a 45 minute drive from us. I thought it would be lovely to head over there and take some Autumn pictures of the children, trees and leaves. I quickly put together a flask of hot chocolate, a pack of biscuits and rummaged in the cupboard for something to take for the Little Ones.
As luck would have it Aldi had kindly sent us a hamper of their award-winning Mamia 100% organic baby and toddler range for the Little Ones to test out, so I grabbed the juice, fruit pouches and rice cakes and off we went.
On arrival at our favourite forest picnic spot the Little Ones immediately ran to find Granny, Grampy and Great Granny who had snagged a picnic table next to the play park. Having been sat in the car for 45 minutes they were full of energy and giggled and chased each other, ran around the grass climbing and jumping off logs and jumping high in the air with piles of leaves.
At this point it had been a whole hour since we finished lunch and needless to say little tummies were rumbling and the Little Ones were apparently STARVING. I pulled out a bag of Mamia organic raspberry rice cakes. They were gone within a couple of minutes, no way was Little 3 was going to release the packet until it was empty. All three children declared them yummy!
..rode (and hugged) a wild boar,
...swung over a crocodile infested ravine,
...and generally enjoyed themselves.
