This was April 10, close to Easter, so there were the customary Easter-themed activities - decorate your own eggshell and an Easter egg (chocolate) hunt.
There was also an egg-and-spoon race. Ryan did this without any problem at all! He even did it with one hand holding a chocolate that he was eating (from the Easter egg hunt)!
The mummies had their chit-chat while the children spent most of the party in the pool. Most of the time, the kids were not playing in the kids' pool but swimming in the big pool. As I've mentioned before, I'm so glad that Ryan can swim because he can fully enjoy himself with his friends in the water and I don't have to keep fussing over him.
Ryan had a marvellous time and it was quite hard to pull him out of the water when it was time to go!
After a day of swimming in the pool and at the beach, the two littles were tired so we put them down for a nap and they slept through dinner! Luckily they didn't sleep all the way to the next morning or they would have missed the countdown to the New Year!
Here they are, nice and rested, and preparing to go and party!
A good trip, even though it was so short. Ah, every little moment that we can spend with our extended family is precious since we don't get to see them as often as we'd like to, so it was a trip to remember.
I blinked and a week passed by. Heh heh. Actually, we've been away on our annual April trip to KL. This time we managed to make it last a week because Richard had some business meetings there around the same time. The two littles thoroughly enjoyed themselves playing with everyone. It was wonderful to see them interacting with their relatives and it was very heartwarming to witness the joy that little ones bring to everyone.
I'll tell you more about the trip another time (I know I've been saying that a lot, hehehe, do bear with me). Today I want to share some photos from a birthday party that Ryan attended last month. One of his classmates celebrated her birthday together with her older sister and they both invited their friends to a pizza-making workshop at DoughWorkz by PastaMania (at Nex Mall).
The staff started by gathering the children in the workshop area. Parents were asked to keep out - they can watch from the outside or they can leave and come back later. After a short presentation on pizza and pasta (history, different types, how it is made, etc), the children each started on making their own pizza. They learned how to knead the dough to make the pizza base and they were given all the toppings to add as they please.
(Just to let you know, DoughWorkz also has pasta making workshops for older children.)
After the children were finished putting their pizzas together, the pizzas went into the oven while the children gathered around the birthday cake for the birthday song. The birthday girls had chosen a Frozen themed cake, and most of the children were pretty excited to see the beautiful cake.
After the cake was cut, the pizzas were ready! Yum yum time, together with cake served with ice cream. A good way to end the party!
A few photos of Ryan at the workshop - enjoy!
Ryan's pizza turned out delicious! He had a good bite himself, and that is a big deal for this picky eater!
