Canal and chocolate cake!

The sun was shining and we were desperate to get out of the house. We got dressed, loaded up the pram with supplies and strapped Paige in. Off we went.

Our plan.... A nice walk along the canal.

I feel very lucky that we live so close to the canal, literally a 10 minute walk away. It's so peaceful and so gorgeous to look at. As we walked we talked to Paige as she took in these new unfamiliar surroundings. Her eyes were wide with wonder the whole time. We went over bridges and past water falls. She heard many new sounds and enjoyed every second, as did we.

We then decided to have a nice stroll around the garden centre. I got a little hungry... I had just walked around for an hour!! Mark went into the garden centre cafe and came out with this beast!!

A huge slice of chocolate cake all for me! It had chocolate frosting on the top with magic stars and Cadbury nibbles. Inside were Maltesers and chocolate butter cream. I'm such a sucker for chocolate cake!! It was YUMMY and I must admit it made the long walk very worth it. I wonder if they'll let me buy the whole cake next time? :D

All in all a fun family day was had :D 

Do you and your family go for nice walks?

Thanks for reading,

  3. oh gosh, now I want cake! I love walking and usually walk to work via the nursery with my daughter. It is so calming and helps me keep in touch with nature and this beautiful world that we have the privilege of living in.

    Also, just to let you know that I have nominated you as 1 of my 11 for the Liebster Award. Ax
