For a consecutive Sunday, we went to USS.
We had started the park in a clockwise direction from Far Far Away land the week earlier, so we started the park in an anti-clockwise direction this time round.
X was less upset with Z and Mr H sprinting away for the Transformer ride which still warranted a 10 minutes’ wait so early in the morning.
We took the Crate Adventure ride and X was less fearful of the ride than before. That was a definite improvement.
We caught the 1215pm Sesame Street show. The boys loved the show and we were happy making them happy. The gift of giving joy and lighting the kids’ faces up were undeniably priceless. X clapped and wriggled along.
By the time it ended, it was time for lunch and we popped over to Fish & Co. The boys were accustomed to short visits to USS. The serving size at Fish & Co was huge. It also offered the kids a good view of the Admiral Zheng He’s video.
After lunch, we went to SEA Aquarium.
We had wanted to check out the Typhoon Theatre which featured a 12-minute long video. Unfortunately, X fell asleep after all that excitement in the morning.
Z picked up his complimentary ice cream from the Seaside Shack, right next to the Dolphins. That would make him want to visit the aquarium regularly! He was so pleased with it except for the brain freeze.
At this juncture, X woke up from his nap. He had 5 minutes to look at the fishes before we went to Toast Box. I was shocked at the prices at Toast Box RWS. It was so expensive compared to the usual Toast Box. One cup of Teh was $2.50 instead of the usual $1.60.
We had to leave at 330pm to send Z to his swimming class. X launched into massive cries when he realized we were headed for the carpark. He cried and cried. It was a sure sign that he did not want to leave.
He was inconsolable and cried,”Fish fish… I want see fish.”
I asked if he was fine that Mr H and Z would leave while I brought him to the aquarium. He usually would protest against the idea of splitting up but he was for the idea today.
Definitely a sign that he was growing up and knew what he wanted very clearly.
He was so pro that he proactively hugged Bert, Grover, Elmo and Cookie Monster. Even a toddler knew which character was the main star of the show.
So far USS Sundays were a great hit with the boys.
