Our first weekend together

Excitement is in the house as we welcomed our brother and his family back for a month. My parents have been waiting for this day for so long and it is a no wonder that mom got busy on that day when they arrived = scrumptious dinner!

We spent our first weekend together at Sentosa as we wanted to bring them to the Port of Lost wonder. My brother has been stationed in Shanghai and my nephew has little opportunity for water play. We must expose him more!

The kids were waiting rather impatiently, especially the older ones since they knew what to expect.

As usual, we were the first in line because we were simply kiasu! Hah!

Yay! Off we go!

Faith and her cousin, Lester, who seemed very apprehensive.

Remember to get the kids to drink lots of water and apply the sunscreen!

The younger kids stopped playing after an hour while the older ones were still enjoying themselves.

Eventually we stopped and proceeded to Siloso Beach for our lunch. It’s to Coastes again! We chose this eatery because we wanted a place that the kids could continue to play while the adults had their meal. Play what, you ask. Sand!

Remember Faith is afraid to go into the sand, let alone play with it? I think {good} peer influence is important because when she saw that her cousins were playing, she went ahead as well.

And then when she saw that her cousin Dayen was fetching water from the sea, she wanted to do so too which was really surprising! We brought her once to the beach and she resisted the waters but now, she wanted to do it. I grabbed the opportunity to go into the watersย with her. I’m reminded again to always observe what’s she doing and to encourage her (not to restrict her) whenever she’s ready for any task/adventure. In today’s case, it’s the sand and seawater!

The adults had a relatively easy time for lunch. Yay!

It’s an enjoyable weekend, I must say. Not sure where we would be headed to next as a family.
