A Picnic Lunch


Last week the lovely people from Joules got in touch to ask if my little one would like to try out their junior Shark Lunchbag. I didn't have to think long - Of course Jack would love a shark design lunchbag - Especially since he's recently discovered Finding Nemo! I was right. He really did. It gave us the perfect excuse to go for a picnic in the mountains today.

My total 'foody' husband loves cooking and preparing picnics (just as well, 'cos I don't) and he whipped up a great batch of bacon, brie and salad sarnies using his own freshly baked bread, straight out of our new breadmaker. The berries were only picked this morning from our own backgarden. Eat your heart out Hugh Fearnley-Whittengstall. The wee lunchpack was great. Jack loved carrying it himself and helped us to find just the right spot for our picnic. It contains a nice sealable lunchbox, with room for a second and a small drink. The pocket on the front came in handy for a sweet treat.

As usual, our fearless explorer never wants the adventure to end. It became too treacherous to continue climbing with a two year old in our less-than-suitable walking gear, so we decided to turn back. Not pleased, Jack here wailed "want go back up mountainnnn" for the first half of the way down, the second song on the EP was "more climbbbbbbb" and the bonus track was "want my wowwypop backkkk" penned about the lolly Daddy had accidentally dropped. (Whoopsies) It made for a very peaceful descent as you can imagine.


Jack wore a pin-stripe grandad shirt from Cos. H&M shorts and navy canvas classic Toms.
Thanks again to our friends at Joules.
