a picnic fit for a king

Happy 2016 to all of you! How were the holidays? We both had a great time with our families – mostly chaos when we’re all together, but family time is the most precious time isn’t it?

A few days after the littles broke up from school for the year and before we headed off on our mini breaks and family time, Emily and I wanted to spend some quality time together with our little ones. We picked one of our favourite places – the Newlands River – for a picnic. This little haven of tranquility is tucked away in the suburb, under the enormous trees with perfect little picnic spots dotted all along the river. We were lucky enough to be gifted with a picnic hamper from Burger King to celebrate the launch of their new King Snacks. The littles each received beach towels, beach bats, frisbees, caps and water bottles, plus we got to feast on the yummy King Snacks! Each pack contains four chilli cheese bites, four King Wings, four King Nuggets, four King Chicken Ribs, two fries and two BBQ sauces. All that for just R99 and you have the perfect picnic.

We tucked in to the deliciousness, then the littles headed down to the river to catch tadpoles, throw stones and splash in the water. At one stage, Emily and I headed down to cool off too, and when we came back up we found a big shaggy dog enjoying some leftover King Snacks too! Robbie and Jimmy enjoyed a game of bat and ball, although they found it a lot more entertaining to whack the ball into the bushes and then go hunting for it. An afternoon by the river under the warm African sun was the best way to kick-start the holidays!

Even if your holidays are over and you’re back at work, there are still plenty of summer activities to do. Whether you’re off to your next picnic, beach sunset, mountain walk, music concert, road trip or just a need a break from cooking, we highly recommend you head to your nearest Burger King today and get the King Snack pack!
