Let's Get Outdoors!

One of the activities that we missed most after the kids were packed into school was taking time for a nature's walk regularly... (was wondering if Tim's behaviour was a result of Nature Deficit Disorder)...

Anyways, we were happy to have brought the kids to the Botanic Garden (Cluny Road entrance)... we usually prefer using this entrance as it's quieter and more parking space available...however, we weren't quite happy about the huge construction of the Botanic Garden MRT station going on...Nevertheless, the kids had loads of fun exploring and running around the place...
Tim discovered a spider web in the drain and was taking a closer look...
Anyone game for some foot reflexology? Amazing how the kids don't feel the pain at all...
The lake was covered with a film of oil and dirt... poor swans must have suffered from all this filth...
There's just so much to explore when we are outdoors...
Nature sparked a child's imagination and creativity!
So much in nature that involved V.A.K. elements for the kids to play and learn in...
The best thing of all that running, exploring, discovering, playing and learning... was the kids' energy were all maxed out... *grin*... what better way than that to enjoy a day that's filled with fun!

Your latest investment is definitely worth it *wink*. I see the great results in the pictures!

hee yeah Rachel... the investment is certainly worth while when I see the results of the photos... but still a compact camera does come in handy as it's easier to whip out :P still trying to get use to the bulk of a DSLR...
