1st day of school hols, the kids were in high spirits. ds1 was announcing since Sat that he loves school hols, cos we went to the library and they used dd's card and theirs to borrow a combined total of 17 books. They wanted to save 1 for a DVD, but they couldn't find a DVD they liked, or that I allowed (cos they picked 2 that I felt was unsuitable).
So on Mon, I decided to bring them to West Coast Park to run wild. It's hard to unleash their energy at home and not damage or mess things up, so for my sanity, it is better to bring them out.
I roped in my mom's help cos it would be so much easier with another adult around.
True enough, they started running way ahead of us the moment they saw the playground. Then they played with the sand for a long time.
Dd enjoyed herself with a nap and then looking around the park as well.
I sat with Dd and my mom within view of the boys. They were initially playing under the hot sun but I shooed them into the shady area. I also made them wear hats and put on sunblock, not so common a practice here, but I'd gotten into this habit when we were in Utah.
My mom used the soy beancurd container to help them with their sandcastle making, after I was done eating it (it was my breakfast).
Then when dd woke, she had fun watching and listening to her brothers play.
After that, of course we ended the day with a late lunch at McDonalds. It was the only restaurant there, so we didn't have any other choice, did we? :-)
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
