Last weekend we went to the Botanical Garden. This place is huge and there were people having picnics throughout. There is a nice little section for kids activities and even a large tree house with fun slides to come down from. We enjoyed a yummy pizza and a pesto salad. We will definitely be back for more food and fun. Enjoy the pics which are in no particular order.

Kylie is an early riser and late to bed. We often struggle to get her to bed at 10pm or even 11pm. She is usually up by 7am or earlier. When she is not venturing out of her room to come join us in ours, this is what we find...
Of course, her Daddy laid the comforter out ever so neatly to get her to stay in her room this time around. There were times that we found her sleeping on her small area rug and it made me sad. Whatever it takes for our Princess to get some rest so that she can grow up nice and strong. Even if I wished she could stay this little forever:-)

Last Sunday we were Tourist for a day! We boarded an open top tour bus and took in some familiar scenery. I've mentioned before that this is a small densely populated island so we were quite familiar with the areas. Nevertheless, it was pretty nice taking in the sites and a little bit of history. The weather was quite nice and we enjoyed a lovely breeze. I tried to upload as many of the 200 or so photos I took but slide only let me upload 50 of them. I will post more so that you can see the lovely island where we live:-) It's quite the little paradise.
Speaking of paradise...we have booked our week long trip to Bali. It's only a 2 1/2 hour flight from here. We take of in just a few weeks! Pretty exciting stuff.
Kylie and her Daddy made me a special Mother's Day breakfast. Yummy!!

We visited the Singapore Zoo a few months ago and just realized I had not posted any photos. We went with a few of our cool friends and had an awesome time. There is a fantastic water play area and the kids had alot of fun. We plan to visit again soon as we did not get to see the whole place. This close up is one of my favorite pics of Kylie. She continues to amaze us with her beautiful personality. I love her smile!

We went to Ngong Ping 360 in Lantau Island. There we took a cable car journey to a themed village - Po Lin Monastery and visited with the Giant Buddha to experience the Buddhism culture. We were supposed to go to HK island on a ferry as part of the trip but unfortunately Kylie was not feeling well and we ended up leaving the tour early. We were faced with the emergency trip to a foreign clinic with a non English speaking driver. All was well as the Dr. spoke fluent English and gave our girl some meds that made her feel better within a few hours. We still don't know what was wrong other than she was crying because her tummy hurt and she had a fever. Our girl rarely cries when she is ill so we were definitely concerned that it may have been something more. Thank goodness it was not. The tour and the entire trip itself was a great experience and we are already talking about going back at some point. If you are planning to go to HK I highly recommend this tour for a nominal fee of approximately $1500 (HKD) for 3 ppl which ends up being under $200 USD:-) Click here if you'd like to learn more about the cable car and tour.
