Bible Verse of the Day

Batik Beach Family Day

Hannah woke up with a big smile, and with big brown eyes, she asked me, “Mommy, is today the day for our Family Day?”

I said yes, and she smiled even more. 🙂

This year, instead of the usual Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day celebration in school, we had a Family Day celebration in Golden Sands Hotel outdoors instead.  So 2 Sundays ago saw us all making a trip to Batu Feringghi.

The kids were, of course, excited about the whole thing, because part of the program was a play session in AdventureZone!

The event was themed Batik Beach Day, so I got them all to dress up in batik attire:

Weather that day was slightly threatening, and we were treated to intermittent showers during the event.

Nevertheless, we all had a lot of fun, as can be seen in the pictures I managed to capture below:

Getting ready for…

Every Limbo boy and girl
All around the Limbo world
Gonna do the Limbo rock
All around the Limbo clock

Jack be Limbo, Jack be quick
Jack go under Limbo stick
All around the Limbo clock
Hey, let’s do the Limbo rock!

Initially, our little princess was feeling restless and rather sleepy…

…but soon warmed up and participated in the fun activities (although some were quite haphazard LOL)…

Daddy also participated in the tug-o-war on the beach…look at Daddy go! 😀

The tug-o-war event was divided into 3 categories: Daddies, Mommies and kids… let me just say that it’s not very flattering to be pulling hard on a rope when you’re dressed in a sarong pareo.  Good thing Daddy forgot to use the zoom on my camera 😛

We then adjourned to AdventureZone for a little while (no pictures, sorry!) and then moved on to another fun activity which we all enjoyed: The Sand Castle building competition.

It took some practice to get the ratio of sand to water right in order to erect structures on the beach.  The kids had a blast helping to collect water, pat the sand into buckets and then create our sandcastle.

We had no plan in mind whatsoever what to build, but ended up creating a fish-shaped castle.  Can you see the fish? 😛

It was a truly fun-filled Family Day and the kids especially had a whale of a time!  We were all exhausted but everyone enjoyed themselves 🙂

    Nice contrasting photos of sleepy Hannah and wide-awake Hannah at the end! LOL!

    Joyce says: Oh yeah…she definitely warmed up well! Haha.
