Off Day

Today is my off day (sort of). I was off duty from taking care of the kids. :D Went for my facial appointment at noon. PaPa stayed home with the kids. Came back in time for PaPa to send XY to ballet lesson. Made CE nap first before I have my late lunch (porridge).

Then in the evening, we brought the kids to the nearby clubhouse for water play. It's been a very long time since they last played at the pool. I didn't want to get wet so PaPa took care of the kids in the pool. I was sitting at a table near the cafe (where I can also see the kids and hubby), 'guarding' our bag, eating fries and sipping lemon sea coconut. *ahhhh... how relaxing* And when my butt felt light, I walked around to snap some pictures (actually very few) with PaPa's handphone. hehehe

~ water = fun fun fun ~

Definitely a fun day for us (me and the kids, that is). Not too sure about hubby though. :D

Hi Slavemom, always good to see young kids playing, swimming in water. Apart from good exercise, they know how to swim.
Well taken pics too, good for you.
Best regards, Lee.

the 'security guard' was having as much fun with her yummies as the kids in the pool eh? *wink*

those are amazing photos...especially XY...
(I wonder if XY is the initials of the name I had loved all my life and wanted it badly for my daughter, if I had one that is)

Good on you that you got yourself pampered, even though it was just for a few hours. I dunno when I will be able to indulge in that! :)

Wonderful Life said...

hmm... looks like I've not been to the beauty salon to have a facial treatment for long long time liao...

Kids tend to love and play with water huh? It's pleasant activity to get them exercise though... :)
