Outdoor Picnic Fun

Last week summer finally arrived in the UK! With temperatures reaching over 32 degrees, I made sure to keep Grace cool in the garden. One way to keep Grace entertained is with food and being outdoors; so a picnic was the perfect choice.

We set up a little shaded area in the form of a tent, got a picnic rug and paddling pool out and had some fun with Grace chasing the cats across the garden.

As Grace is now 1 day off 11 months old, she's starting to become more and more independent and having a lot more finger foods; as well as feeding herself comfortably with a spoon. Foods like pasta and raisins are great to improve her pincer grip. She definitely takes after her mama's taste buds!

Circus tent - here.
Grace has been without her daddy for a few weeks this month whilst he was away with work, so it was great to have some mummy daughter bonding time. Juggling everything alone can be rather challenging! It's good to know that HiPP Organic has a wide range of organic-tray meals for little one's aged 12 months+ so that I can provide her with a quick, yet healthy meal when I don't have time to make a meal from scratch. 

One that I thought was a great idea, is the HiPP Organic Magic Number Pasta in a creamy Pumpkin Sauce which is designed to help your little one learn new skills and have some fun at the same time. Sadly this contains milk, so we're not quite at the stage to try this yet!

Love our new paddling pool (which is also a ball pit!), with a shade for Grace to enjoy the sun without the harmful rays. It was on 2 for £15 in Argos so was great value! £10.99 here.

We both enjoyed our little outdoor picnic and found it very relaxing listening to the wildlife in the garden. HiPP work hand in hand with nature, encouraging wildlife onto their farmland to act as natural pest control. This allows their produce to grow as naturally as possible without harmful pesticides.
