Hot on the heels of Teacher’s Day comes the kids’ equivalent. Anyhow, at this age it doesn’t quite matter. They get to party in school, presents go around and a day off from lessons. Whatever the occasion, it is just time to celebrate.
They had their fun in school and with the Sunday School kids too at Jacob Ballas. The waterplay area was a favourite (somewhere in that mess is my kid), and it was a relief that the weather was so good. Not searing hot yet no hint of rain. Perfection.
We popped into Arbite once again, this time with company. We had a lovely observant waiter who really was attentive to the kids. Kids’ cutlery, a mint, Lego blocks and everything. The food being nice was a plus point (ok, maybe it should be the other way round. I got screwy priorities. But you know what it is like with BAD service…), and I figure we’d be back again.
The evening was rounded off by lantern carrying… And it was no small feat that their paper lanterns were not burned in the short walkabout. Was quite surprised that J actually wanted to carrying the paper ones. And K the copycat followed suit. Saved my ears if you asked me.
And of course, back to the grind the next day.
We stumbled into Swensens the other day after a long while. The menu has been changed beyond our recognition. Not like it really mattered. The kids got their kiddy meals and went crazy role playing with their pirate boats thereafter. They blew out the lone candle on the Firehouse Birthday sundae. All in, it looked like we were celebrating their birthday.
But nah. Happy birthday to the husb.
