[Long weekend part 3]

Another super long weekend this week (the girls have declared that we should be on holiday as well, and no touching the computers! Who are we to argue with that logic! :) I thought I should really post the pictures up since I hardly ever get the time to do 'middle of the week' posts anymore!! :P
So, here are the pics taken this weekend - the first weekend of the school hols, so it was super fun for the girls, lots of activities....
The National Museum had it's children's activities for the June Hols.
There were nice indoor A/C spaces with wonderful daylight for drawing, playacting, and goofing around
We loved this play space, it was a bright pink! felt wall with very tastefully done up stuffies to form your own scenery. I think if we ever do up the girls' room again, I would love to have this as an interactive wall element on one of the walls. (Maybe not bright pink though... lol)
We then ventured all over the museum. The girls esp liked the wind machine (actually just an A/C vent) at the bridge.
K doing her boogie woogie
I love this staircase. Doesn't it remind you of the one at Aesop's London shop?

Cheeky cheeky girls, I love how this shot turned out. I really wanted all the kids (yes, there were 6 of them!!!) to line up in a row, but obviously that was never meant to happen.
You can tell how much G loved the wind-machine from these pics! She was literally basking in it... (btw, she accessorized with the pearl necklace herself, she's turning preppie!)
Playing with the interactive magnet board
I don't really know how i made this zoomed in shot, but it's a cool effect!
Another one of her jumping
We went to the West Coast park on Sunday morning for some quality outdoor time.... Luckily for the girls, the threatening rain never did appear, so they managed to have the whole morning playing at the many playgrounds there.Pensive K
Love this shot, that funny expression is soooo quintissentially G, i think she was trying to tell her sister something, K looks on puzzled
Following her sister about. I love it when they decide to be friends, to go picking flowers together. Nowadays, their conversations are extremely funny. They love make belief, often playing mummy and baby, and would talk about going to work, cooking, driving etc. It's so cute to watch them play together, and on sunny windy days like this loooong weekend, the magic of having 2 little ones seem so precious and neverending. (until of course reality bites when they start squabbling!!)
The only shot of me! :) I must get in front of the camera more often..... (p.s. P, i'm wearing the linen tunic!)

Your girls declared for an embargo on computers? Well done, and there I am trying to download iPhone apps for my barely two-year-old toddler!

yes, i know... well, in our house, computers = work (at least for mummy & daddy) So, no computers = no work = playtime!
