We spent the afternoon at the South Bank. It’s one of our favourite places in London and for the first time we let the children take their scooters!
They were very happy scooting along, especially when they found some large puddles to zoom through.
We wanted to go and see HMS President, currently known as the Dazzle ship, moored at Victoria Embankment. The dazzle camouflage was designed to confuse enemy U-boat captains during the First World War. It looked amazing!
I don’t think the children appreciated the views we had over London but us adults did. We headed back along the South Bank, past the Southbank Centre which was hosting the Festival of Love. There was so much going on but we were all hungry so headed to Wagamama for lunch.
We were able to sit outside and people watch. Little Sis was hungry but she eventually cheered up when her food came.
My children love a bento-style lunch. We’ve used divided plates since they started weaning but we were recently sent a Munchkin lunchbox to try out. I knew it would be perfect for picnics but we wanted to try it at home first.
The Click Lock Bento Mealtime Set is brilliant! It helps keep food separate and fresh and includes 2 smaller, removable compartments for fruit, veg, yoghurts or snacks.
We’re big fans of the Disney film Frozen so we came up with our own Frozen-inspired bento.
The lunchbox had three compartments which were filled with popcorn snow, a ham sandwich with a star cut out and a white yoghurt with blueberries. I added a snowflake babybel too.
It went down pretty well, Big Brother immediately re-named the popcorn snow-corn which I thought was quite sweet. My only worry is that they’re going to expect me to be more adventurous with their food. Luckily I have a stash of picks and cutters ready!
Time for some pancakes at long last. We waited for Daddy to come home from work then helped him in the kitchen.
We bought a special Hello Kitty frying pan so we could make small pancakes and we knew the kids would love the Hello Kitty shape.
They did and ate themselves full.
