Barny’s Winter Little Adventure..in the woods..

I’m not going to lie, we’re big fans of Barny here, both boys love the little bear cakes which are filled with yuminess, and I love the fact they’re individually wrapped – ideal for lunch boxes. When we were sent two boxes of the new flavours; strawberry, and apple, we were very excited and I may did have to replace the boxes for the purposes of having Barny to take take on our adventures!

As the weather has been awful, we’ve been a little limited where was safe to adventure too, the boys finally convinced me that we could go to the local woods and check out the storm damage. Every storm we’ve had the woods have actually survived rather well, every storm until the last one, we were greeted by this;

 Having seen that the paths through the wood were either impassable through mud and flood water or partially fallen trees, we decided to stick to the fire break path.

 We spotted a Chinook helicopter;

Followed tracks;

And finally found a place to stop and enjoy our Barny snacks which I’d been carrying in my coat pocket,

Unfortunately, one fell in a big muddy puddle…

but we recovered it quickly and no harm was done, the packaging had kept it safe! 

Unfortunately, Barny didn’t make it home from our adventures, but was enjoyed by all of us! After our brief stop we had to run all the way back as we got caught in a heavy down pour of rain!
I have to admit the apple Barny’s were most popular with my boys, though I enjoyed the strawberry ones a little more personally! They’re an ideal “clean” snack and as previously mentioned, I do pack them as a lunch box treat!
