After Bunny’s birthday on Saturday, and the girls’ triple Christening and triple birthday celebrations on Sunday, we fancied a nice relaxing bank holiday Monday.
A short whinge!
Jonny had to work, so it was just me and the girls. Bunny had been wanting to go to Frankie and Bennys for her birthday, but so far we hadn’t had time. So that’s what we did – Lunch outside Frankie and Bennys.
Bunny had a tasty looking spag bol and I had a chicken Caesar salad. Well that’s what I ordered anyway! What I actually got was lettuce, chicken and one tomato! I had to ask for Caesar dressing, I had to ask for Parmesan, I only got one tomato and one crouton, but after finding out there were no anchovies (which was the only reason I ordered it), I felt pretty down about my ridiculously bland salad. I felt like I got my Frankie but no Benny’s! I complained and after asking for a different meal, I was assured I would get a discount off my bill instead (no alternative offered). We had some tasty desserts and the service was good, but my plate of lettuce had left a bitter taste of F&B’s.
Out into the sunshine
Despite my still-growling stomach, I decided it was too beautiful a day, to go home and we went to a stunning park nearby, instead. After dousing the three girls in sun lotion, Bunny went out on the lake in a pedalo for half an hour, while the twins sprawled out in the shade for their milk. I lay basking in the British sunshine (like an anaemic seal), watching the three of them and taking photos on my new phone. After that, we went to the play park, so Bunny could use up some spare energy and play. The twins had a good crawl around on the grass. YES CRAWL!
At the weekend, Tiny learnt to crawl!
I took a few pics of our girly day out and my awesome phone turned them into a mini vid! Check out some of our highlights…

That’s rubbish (the frankie and benny bit). I like my caesar salad WITHOUT anchovies but would expect the dressing and the parmesan! Must have been really crap staff that day! Looks like you had a lovely time apart from that.

Congratulations on the twins learning to crawl – that’ll make for a busy week this week!
That Salad sounds ridiculous, I bet you were starving! 1 crouton is one heck of a diet meal!

Sounds like a lovely girls day – the photos of the twins in their pretty sun dresses are just adorable 🙂 Sorry about the salad though – as a veggie I have often been presented with a plate of lettuce – not much of a meal 🙂
Never heard of Frankie and Bennys but it doesn’t sound like I have missed out! Love the park on the other hand looks well worth a visit. I think next time a picnic in the park will be the answer all round! Love the video, I am tet to master linking stills and video togther but you have made them work really well. Thank you for linking up to Country Kids.

Have you contacted F&Bs since? Twitter or e-mail.
Seems such a shame it spoilt your day a bit – looks like a great day/time otherwise.
Thank you for linking up with the Spring Carnival.
