Yesterday we went out for an Adventure, a grand day out actually!
We went to Bristol on the train for the Gromit exhibition.
When we got to the venue where the gaggle of Gromit’s were, we were shocked! The queue was epic.
It was approximately 4 hours queuing. Luckily a few of the places next to the path were the queue had snaked back past had open space. The church in particular broke the boredom.
When we got nearer the front of the queue we had to get inventive to keep the boys busy. The iPad became a mobile tv playing Wallace & Gromit films.
Eventually, after lots of milkshake, ice cream and snacks we got in! It really was a jolly long wait, I know queuing is rather British but I had lost patience completely by then.
The dogs were cute but we were worn out, and made our way to the station, checking the train times phone app on the way, next train in 4 minutes or then in an hours time. We ran, up some stairs, down some stairs, with the boys jumping steps in pairs, then jumped straight onto the train. Not had to run for train in ages!
When we boarded our ride home, the boys decided now was a great time to try out Barny cake bars. They are teddy bear moulded Madeira cake, with a chocolate spread sort of filling. They looked cute, adorable, delicious and great for lunch box snacks.
Unfortunately we don’t actually like them. D refused to finish his, Blokey and I agreed they weren’t for us, and Jen said he wasn’t that keen on them either, but then finished D’s beheaded bear off. The reason we didn’t like them was the sponge cake tasted “dry”.
They aren’t something we would buy, for us to eat, but we would consider them for party bag treats as they are rather cute looking.
