Last week me and my friend decided to take the kids up to Kingston Lacy for the day, for those that don’t know Kingston Lacy is a National Trust attraction the stunning country mansion is surrounded by the most beautiful grounds and gardens – this was the first time I’d ever been the sun was shining picnic’s we’re packed we we’re looking forward to a lovely day.
Being the easter holiday’s we thought we’d have a go at the cadbury’s egg hunt so with maps in hand and enthusiastic children excited for some chocolate at the end we headed off. The hunt was actually quite tough mine and Sam’s map reading skills were awful – but it had been planned out really well you could see a lot of effort and thought had gone into the egg hunt, all the ‘eggs’ we were looking for were created out of natural materials so tree stumps, gravel or bamboo – it took us on a lovely walk all around the grounds. The kids did really well with all the walking but by the time we reached a picnic spot we were all ready for a rest and some grub!
There only one thing that could improve our picnic and that is of corse some yummy cake!
Viennese whirls got the thumbs up from Bella.
We all tucked in and they were delicious without doubt our day was made better with cake – Thanks Mr Kip! Feeling happy and refuelled the kids had a little play on the ride on tractors.
And Lottie was having a whale of a time toddling about and trying to eat bark every time I looked away!
Then it was on with me more egg hunting! And the reward for doing so well of corse they got their chocolate egg, this made for 4 very happy children (cake and some chocolate in one day what it’s Easter) and Lottie was very happy to be getting some little nibbles too!
