Nothing like an early start to the weekend, especially for a working mama! This weekend, I took Friday off to catch up with some girlfriends over breakfast and swoon over their littlest while they were swooning over mine. Also checked out the baby fair hoping to get a steal off a new car seat and a stroller but alas, I was controlled in my spending (to my surprise) and bag home only what I needed: a box of the most comfortable nursing pads and baby wipes.
On Sunday, a family who knew how religious we’ve been in utilising our USS season passes almost every week, invited us to Universal Studios with them. It was our 5th time there in under a month (I know, I know…) but was also our most enjoyable visit to date! We spent a total of 5 hours there, our longest visit yet. It was such a great idea to go with another family – the kids could go on rides together, sing & dance in unison during the live performances, play catch, and the best part? The adults got to go on rides sans the kids too. After 5 visits to USS, I finally got to sit The Revenge of the Mummy and Transformers for the first time thanks to the dads who babysit the kids while us mummies scream/laugh our heads off. Average wait time for most of the rides was 5 minutes so you can imagine how tempted we were to go for another round although our kids beat us to it when they kept bugging us to sit rides that they could go on. Heh. Liam still loves the roller coaster the most and went on it 3 times!
Grover was so taken in with Ollie that he did a little dance and clap before this photo. The photographer that helped us take this shot oooed and aahhhed over Ollie too. Perks of having a baby in your arms. You get many burst shots to choose from!
Liam was also excited to meet a life size transformer for the first time. He had no idea who they (Bumblebee and Optimus Prime) were initially but after this photo, he kept gushing to his papa how he met Bumblebee.
Liam had such a good time that he kept dishing kisses to Bo & myself and thanking us for a very happy day. Ollie was so excited at being out that he could hardly keep to his naps, often wanting us to carry him upright to check out his surroundings. We might have just unlocked the secret formula to getting our kids to sleep through the night and being on their best behaviour for the longest time ever (he’s been on his best since, brushing his teeth, finishing his food, waking up early and getting ready for school without a fight).
