Once a week, some moms and I would plan outdoor playdate for the kids. Prior to that day, we would pray hard that it wouldn’t rain but obviously we couldn’t control the weather and this week, it rained cats and dogs.
What a dampener!
We had wanted to go to Jacob Ballas but adjourned to seek shelter at Food for Thought at the Botanic Gardens. We love the restaurant for its wide space and a playground just outside the premise where the children could play.
There were about 10 children on that day and what could we do to occupy the energetic kids?
We were disappointed that the restaurant doesn’t provide colour pencils and paper for the kids anymore but hey, there’s bound to be someone in our midst who brought something for the toddlers!
The kids went out to play once the rain had stopped.
Lester and his mummy.
How long can they be content with the small playground?
“Mama, I’m bored!”
Yay, someone brought the bubbles!
All the children perked up!
Moms went ‘phew!’
Lesson learnt: When you are going on an outdoor activity, always bring the busy bag along and storybooks. Playing with bubbles is fun for the kids, so always have it in the bag.
These pictures make me smile.
*Thank you to the one who brought the bubbles for the children to play with.
