The Father’s Day weekend started on Friday for the kids. Z’s school was closed and X’s school arranged a Father’s Day excursion to Urban Farm, Bukit Panjang.
Z followed me to work. He spent his morning making a Lego car, building a Sydney Opera House 3D puzzle, doing his assessment book and getting entertained by a few of my colleagues. This was an awesome perk of working for a pro-family employer. Kids were welcomed to office.
Here was Z at my workplace:
I brought him up to see the much talked about ships
We had lunch nearby and I also bought him a cup of Ya Kun teh which pleased him.
Here was the boy waiting for Mr H to pick him up after half a day
Meanwhile, this was what X did at the excursion:
Presented his card to Mr H
It was a potluck lunch party so I suggested to Mr H to buy 10 packets of bee hoon and it was a great idea.
By evening, we were back to the usual routine of dropping Z off for class. We had to bring X home to eat dinner and wash up as he slept through dinner.
Meanwhile, Z’s blades had also arrived.
K2 SK8 Hero Pro, Size US1-5 at $189.65
We also got a set of guards for $28. It included wrist guards, elbow guards & knee guards. It was very cheap, compared to what we paid for Micro at $45 for a set of elbow & knee guards for X!!! The importance of market knowledge was prevalent.
Saturday was a buzz as usual.
Soccer class for Z
We attended a baby’s first month party.
How nice it was to hold tiny babies and X looked so cute next to the newborn baby!
We headed to Sentosa for another party.
Boys thrilled with their buggy ride to the Wavehouse
A cool beach club party
Waiting for his Flow rider turn (and it was his 4th round!)
Rather safe for the kids
He even received a certificate for participation
End of party and another ride back (on another buggy)
We headed off for a Father’s Day dinner at Vivo City’s Paradise Dynasty and actually caught the fireworks!
Sunday was another flurry of activities. After replenishing the groceries, we prepped the boys to head to the park for skating lessons and scooting. We had to rush off for Father’s Day lunch at East Ocean. It was such a hot day that we had to detour home for a shower and change of clothes. Z went for his swim class before we headed down to Cafe Melba for our annual “surprise” Father’s Day party. It was so regular that it was really not much of a surprise and Mr H had been a tad disappointed when he thought this party was not happening!
It was a chaotic party with 6 kids but that meant more fun, laughter and cheer.
The weekend was so hectic that we were rather glad to have taken leave for the next day!
