Saturday in the Park

We have been spending quite a few of our Saturday mornings at West Coast Park because Anya has her inline skating lessons there. West Coast Park is a really lovely place to hang out. It’s pretty near us and is spacious and never feels uncomfortably crowded, unlike East Coast Park. There are several playgrounds suitable for different age groups and open spaces for kite-flying and such.

We usually rush off after her inline skating lesson because our weekends are always packed full. But Anya wanted to have a picnic so we brought along a ground sheet and made ourselves comfortable at one of the sandy playgrounds the Saturday before I was due to deliver. I wasn’t really very mobile by then so we were taking things easy and didn’t have a full day ahead of us.

We had plans to make sandwiches but didn’t have time so we bought some food from McDonald’s instead. The kids had a lot of fun digging in the sand while Adrian and I lazed about. A really wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning, I would say!

Swensen’s Disney Princess Ice-Cream Cake (Plus a Giveaway!)

Anya really loves her Disney Princesses. Her favourite Disney Princess used to be Cinderella, then she decided that Rapunzel was way more interesting, and now it’s all about Elsa from Frozen simply because her dress is so gorgeous! We spend a lot of time watching the Disney Princesses on DVD and Adam can name quite a few of them too.

So when I showed her pictures of Swensen’s newest range of Disney Princess ice-cream cakes, her eyes lit up and she spent lots of time looking through the images and deciding which one was her absolute favourite. The day after I got home from hospital with David, we surprised them with the cake and we had a little celebration. The Disney Princess ice-cream cake was a feast for the eyes and tastebuds! The kids were delighted with the beautiful cake and ate it with glee.

Depending on the weight of the cake, the Disney Princess range of ice-cream cakes comes in different shapes (round, heart, square, rectangle) and you can choose from 24 exciting and delicious ice-cream flavours. We ordered the Swensen’s Special (vanilla, chocolate and strawberry). Personally, I love Ol’ Fashioned Vanilla and Sticky Chewy Chocolate. :) Prices start at $47 for a 1kg cake.
