Britmums Winter Adventures with Barny!

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Back in September we got to taste the first Barny cake flavours and show you all our (Adventure). Well now there are two brand new flavours; strawberry and apple and we were sent a box of each to enjoy on our winter adventures.

Our favourite winter adventures are at our local park. We go in all weathers, as long as we are dressed appropriately, it is lots of fun even in the rain. We've been lucky this week and the weather seems to have  brightened up slightly and just in time for our adventure with Barny. On Wednesday we went and bought Zach his first pair of wellies incase we found puddles to jump in and headed to the park armed with our Barny Bear cakes and some bread for the ducks.

First stop was the play area where an impatient Gracie decided it was the perfect place to stop off for a quick snack break. She very much enjoyed a tasty apple flavoured Barny before disappearing down the slide and poor Zach who couldn't try any due to his dairy allergy ran loose around the park testing out his new wellies. Although thankfully he didn't notice he had missed out!

Next stop was to feed the ducks. Both kids love feeding the ducks so it is a must every time we go to the park whatever the weather. I got some lovely photos of Gracie feeding them. 

Once we had finished feeding the ducks we didn't have long until the park closed so we let the kids run wild on one of the many grassy areas. They had lots of fun running around together and Zach loved getting messy! The grass was a bit muddy and slippy still and as he hadn't got used to his wellies yet he spent lots of time falling over in the mud giggling away to himself!

Well that was a fun adventure and we had just enough time for muddy puddles on the way back to the car of course!

It was then time to go home and that meant time for another yummy snack after all that hard work having fun. 

After trying both the flavours. Strawberry is the firm favourite for both me and Gracie, although apple is very yummy too! We love Barny Bear cakes they are such a convenient and enjoyable snack.

  1. looks like lots of fun was had. The joy of the first day of wellies, they are hard to run in. We tried the barney bars last year as well, but Bob is like Zach - allergic to dairy (and eggs/wheat/gluten/peanuts)

  2. Park days are the best, I can't wait till my little one is walking and can zoom about a bit more!

  3. Aw what cuties your little one are! And a great excuse to get outside in this horrible weather x

  4. Parks are fantastic and I love how a day like this is just timeless. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part.
