Visiting Father Christmas!

I've been so quiet on here recently and I can only put it down to being so busy with a toddler, work and preparing for Christmas! So apologies for that, but if you want to catch up with what we've been up to check out my YouTube Channel, as we've been vlogging every day as part of Vlogmas!

Anyway! On Sunday we went to see the big man himself, Father Christmas. It's crazy how booked up he becomes at all the 'decent' places, and even though I booked at the beginning of November we still only managed to get a slot before 10am!

It was well worth it though, and the grotto we went to was much better than the one in the town centre last year. We had a really lovely Santa, who took his time to talk to Indiana as he understood how young children can be. They also took loads of photos so we had a hard choice deciding which one to get (our visit included a framed photo which was a great touch).

Unfortunately Indiana did scream a bit haha. The second Jack put her down she started crying, however we calmed her down and she eventually warmed to him; even letting us sit her on his lap for a picture!
I know she still doesn't understand but we want her to believe eventually, and so we are going to take her every year... last year she was only 3 weeks old! Also sorry for the terrible picture quality, but it's a picture of a picture haha.
Did you visit Santa this year?

Vita Coco Kids Review

We were recently contacted by the lovely people at Vita Coco Kids on Twitter, who asked us if we wanted to trial some of their new range. We've never tried coconut water or anything like that as a household so of course I was so excited to say yes!
If you haven't heard of them before, Vita Coco Kids are naturally flavoured coconut water; with two different flavours including apple and blackcurrant and mango and pineapple! As you know Indiana has never had juice before so I was a bit nervous about how she'd react to them. But I had nothing to worry about! The second the straw was in her mouth she knew what to do, and there was a chorus of 'yum yums' coming from her haha.
I of course checked the ingredients and small prints before allowing her to have a taste (and no she didn't have the whole thing before the mummy police comes to get me!). There's actually less sugar in these than most big name kids juices, plus a whole load more potassium! Another great fact is that they're free from preservatives, colourings or added sugar! 

Jack and I even had a taste and we both agreed they're pretty yummy, so they've got the thumbs up from all of us!
Have you ever tried coconut water?
