St. Patty's

A little late posting but here it is. We enjoyed a little St. Patty's celebration here in S'Pore. We had a fun time with friends. It poured down rain just as the parade started. The parade kept going as we took cover. We managed to catch up with the activities on the other side. It was quite interesting to say the least complete with Asian bag pipers. I got a kick out of that. I took lots of video which unfortunately is still in the camera. Anyway, the committee in charge of putting this whole thing together must have a great sense of humor. There were several Star*Wars characters in full gear also part of the the parade and then photo op. What the heck to they have anything to do with St. Patty's day - lol!! After the activities most of the group went to an Irish Bar & Grill for some good food and more fun. I'm loving this place! There's a little bit of everything for everyone!
Sean and I have our 10 year wedding anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks!! We are planning an exciting trip to Hong Kong to celebrate the occassion!!! Kylie is thrilled and keeps asking when we are going to "Hong Konk". We haven't even told her we are going to Disney*land yet!

Every weekend Kylie would look through our window towards the pool and often comment about the  people swimming out in the pool. The people she was referring to are instructors and their eager students with the black and bright orange wet suits. She often told me that she wanted to join them. One Saturday as we were spending a relaxing morning by the pool, I decided to observed an instructor. I was so impressed with how great he was with the little ones that I decided to ask him a few questions. One thing led to another and next thing you know we formed a new little swim team to begin lessons the following week. We feel that Kylie is a pretty good swimmer as evident by our previous videos where she was swimming before she had even turned two! However, the swim lessons are focusing on the importance of breathing techniques. I'm very impressed by how brave and resilient the girls always seem to be. They got a little water up their nose and they were ready to try it again. Our little friend William got a little water up his nose and well let's just say he was not happy about that and let everyone know. The Instructor was pretty good at calming him down although William looked all over for his mom whom I was trying to hide. Thank goodnes it was the end of that lesson. Boys are so silly! -lol! Let's just hope Kylie thinks so until she's at least in her 20's. Here are just a few of the cute pics from their second lesson and Kylie's new friends.

We went to the beach today! We got together with a few friends to celebrate our friend Jen's "forty two-rrific" birthday. The beach is located on the island where we work. Although I've yet to join them, some of our colleagues go to the beach for lunch. Enjoy a glimpse of where we work and play. I have to warn you though, some of the photos you are about to see look like we are on vacation, but please do not be fooled...we are working very hard to get this project up and running:-)
