After John buying the girls their gorgeous scarf hats on Saturday, I was desperate to take the girls into the woods/forest and snap a few pictures of them.

The idea was to get some nice Autumn pictures of them throwing or kicking leaves about. But sadly this was not to be as what leaves there were and trust there weren’t many were slightly damp. *Okay I might have had unrealistic expectations when it came to these leaf piles*. Lol

To be honest this was rather very disappointing to me and I didn’t bother trying to hide my disappointment. For i had pictured gorgeous coloured autumn leaves being thrown through the air by two beautiful little princesses having the time of their lives. As I happily clicked away using my camera/phone.

Well the reality was so very different! Ella unlike Holly was all up for it and loved every minute of being in the woods/forest. Holly made daddy carry her and refused to wear her hat let alone have her picture taken.

With a little coaxing from daddy Holly started to come around and was eventually walking instead of being carried. But this was only after we { I mean me} had had enough and decided we should just give up and go home. However daddy had different ideas and “asked who would like to go for ice-cream”?

So we headed back towards the car with Ella leading the way. Yeah we ended up going a completely different way than we had come. Thankfully it took us still to the main path leading back to the car.

With the promise of ice-cream and a much happier Holly I managed to get a few pictures of Holly and Ella together. These were the best ones.

Whilst John unlocked the car and got Holly strapped in I took these pictures of Ella.

Shortly afterwards we joined daddy and Holly in the car and off we went.

It wasn’t long before we arrived at Sunnybank Garden Centre Home Of The Yorkshire Ice-cream Farm.

Oh goodness me if you’re lucky enough to live near by, but you just haven’t yet been then I highly recommend you do. Their ice-cream is absolutely amazing and there are sooò many weird but wonderful flavours to choose from. You wanna know the crazy thing is the flavours really work and complement each other very well!

For my first three scoops *yes you read right* I had pistachio {my favourite from our first visit}, honeycomb and turkish delight. Mmmm just thinking about it now is making my mouth water.

Ella also had three scoops. She choose vanilla, Belgium chocolate and mint which she thoroughly enjoyed.

For Holly we got a single scoop of vanilla which of course she loved. Holly also had the pleasure of tasting all of ours. To be honest we all kinda gave each a taste of all the different flavours we had gotten. Which was nice!

In between eating our ice-creams or not as the case maybe, as the girls wandered off to go play on and off. Which was okay as we were sat at the tables and chairs in the lovely little playground area.

It really is lovely there. Believe it or not its rather peaceful and relaxing to sit there, and enjoy your delicious ice-creams.

After our second round of ice-creams we decided it was time to leave. As we needed to go to Sainsburys before they closed to get Holly’s prescription filled.

What fun and exciting things did you get upto this weekend?
