follow the doughnut trail...

It's become a bit of a tradition that Boy organises a picnic bike ride as our birthday presents. Last week was Daddy's birthday so we duly prepared the 'surprise' picnic. When Daddy returned from work he found a helium balloon attached to his bike seat and doughnut wrapped in brown paper with his instructions.

'Follow the doughnut trail...'

Along our lane we hung a supply of doughnuts from tree branches overhanging the road for daddy to find.

Eventually (in fact we were only minutes away) he reached us, our bikes, mine with his presents in the basket (a new e-bay purchase) and a supply of more of his favourite cakes, including a box of Cherry Bakewells as his birthday cake.


  1. Happy Birthday to him! What a wonderful idea....

  2. What a great birthday tradition!
