Lovely weekend with the kids

Well, there were tantrums but these are kids so ya, as lovely as can be!

Duckie went out with us on the bus too


We arrived at Suntec and wanted to cross over to Marina Square but went one level more and ended up at some robot kitty exhibition. We couldn't understand the exhibition *.* And there were lots of people trying to give us free gifts - in exchange for some trial cleaning service at home. Thanks but no thanks.

Then off we went to Marina Square!

ZY was so happy when he saw this!


The steps were behind a barrier but the kids went in anyway!


At some bus track with some buses...


ZK with Tayo!


Couldn't get a tyre? Get a cone!


Oh yeah, I found a tyre!


ZY wouldn't share with ZK but later, ZK also found a tyre. They were like 小霸王 at the bus tracks, refusing to let other kids touch their tyres :p

Papa and ZY sitting in Tayo!


That was supposed to be four of us but this ZK threw a tantrum and refused to go in. When I asked him later, he said that I took too many photos *.* One was enough *.* I think my four-year-old can be quite moody *.*

We had a wonderfully peaceful ramen dinner - they had their own free bowls almost all on their own!


We spent just under the $50 required to exchange for play passes but a nice lady gave us lots of play passes as we got near to the Angry Birds stage! So nice of her to redeem them and give them away :) Last week, we benefitted from another such kid act at Star Vista as well - there ARE nice people around! :)

Unfortunately, the bouncy castle was full for the day. That was disappointing but the kids had some fun at other play stations. Some la, coz they had no strength to play on their own...

Big hammer for ZY!


Big glove for ZK!


But he barely hit the thing hoho! I was no better too - I went perhaps three times as much as ZK in my first hit, which really wasn't much!

Slightly more success with the hammer! But he caught his right middle finger as he landed - lightly, fortunately.


After the meet-and-greet, ZY had a go at the big glove too with Papa's help


We sat down to wait for the Angry Birds to show up - my legs went numb in the 20 min or so, and my mind went numb from answering his endless questions on when it was happening *.* But we did have some fun monkeying around!

Hello! ... Wooooo! .... *obliterated Mama's face*


While ZK and I were sitting down, Sito and ZY were roaming the area, playing the games again... This ZY could not sit still *.*

When the Angry Birds finally came out, we were surprised to find that they got those with the meet-and-greet pass to go queue up after the introduction. Turned out that it was only a meet-and-greet, no song and dance. Ah well.

The kids were happy to touch the birds - so squishy!


Coz ZK was tired too....


Before we left, we passed the remaining play passes to another family - good to pass it on like how others had passed to us.

ZY looked really tired by then. Rolling the heavy tyres must be rough! But we managed to make it before they fell asleep, phew! All in, it was a successful big outing that we hadn't had for a long time :)

And today, the plans were to have the kids make pizza for lunch. I cut the stuff in the morning and prepared the dough. When they fussed, I let them help me cut the honey baked ham. But they ended up tearing it in the end - not easy to cut.

ZK concentrating very hard... A rare sight!


The two seconds that he got the cut side down.


The recipe yielded eight small rounds - will post on mf eats later. Sito took some photos and/or videos of them making their own pizza - I'll have a look later tonight... But here are the outcomes!

ZY attempting to cut his pizza


He only had perhaps one slice before a meltdown when we refused to let him use the knife as a fork *.*

ZK almost finished his pizza - he dropped one slice at the end


So I had ZY's leftovers plus two more rounds while Sito had three - all with the vege that the kids didn't use much of. I saved one with chopped toppings - including the vege! - in case the kids were hungry later. And indeed, ZY was hungry when he woke!

He almost finished the entire pizza!


The pizzas were all yummy - even those with the broccoli :) - but it was quite a lot of work even with N helping to clean up. Think I might just go for frozen base the next time... Or make one huge sheet and bake a giant pizza.

Now we're waiting for Sito and ZK to come home with dinner. ZY is running around and sometimes sitting on my lap. I'm obviously still typing away. Nice weekend indeed :)

Update 13 Jun 2016

And our lovely weekend ended with a fist-sized lump of baby poo poo on the toilet floor *.*

Courtesy of ZY, who really needs to be taught some potty manners!
