[July Highlights]

Wow, time really flies by and yet again, it's almost been 1 month since my last post! Lots of last minute packing happening (mostly V) as we'll be spending the next few days at the MBS for a mini stay-cation. The girls are oblivious to all this harried activity happening around them, as they have no idea and it will be quite a pleasant surprise! I'm a fireworks junkie, and when living in London, have been known to drag poor V all over the parks and rivers of the city when there were major fireworks displays :) Can't wait to experience this thrill with the girls, the last time we came anywhere close to fireworks was when G was about 2, WAY before K was even born! The logistics of 2 of course made it all the more difficult to trek to the various vantage points to watch the fireworks, although I'm sure after witnessing it firsthand this year, the girls will make us bring them to future fireworks displays (shhh.... that's my secret plan, so it'll be 3 against 1.... *evil laugh*)
Pics of this month:
My little indian princess in a sari (which she absolutely hated... but obliged for the start of the morning cos we begged her to!)
Attended little baby E's 1st month and love how the candid pics of the girls and their cousins turned out!
Little miss Atas
G being the clown as usual
Me and K sharing a little joke
Trying on sil's sunglasses.... nice?

Otherwise... we have been keeping up with the Sunday "excursions" as the girls call them. We will head out in the morning, have a leisurely breakfast out, then it will be the beach, cycling or other outdoor stuff, before heading the library to cool off and stock up on the weekly staple of books. The girls love it and we reckon it is something that is truly making use of where we are geographically! Today especially was amazingly great weather, after a downpour in the morning, the air was cool and windy, we had the best time outdoors, having a cheap and good lunch at the lagoon before G totally wow-ed us with her almost instant progression from training wheels to a 2-wheeler! The joy and pride of watching her ride away on her own is soooo bitter sweet :)
