Pre-celebration with family

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, July 16, 2011
Today, my family had a pre-celebration birthday for Caleb because on his birthday itself, my parents, brother and in-laws would be celebrating for him.

My birthday present for Caleb this year is simply to bring him to East Coast Park for cycling and sandcastle building. I actually gave him a few options as to what he wants to do and he chose cycling. I feel this is the best birthday present by far as its meaningful and I do not want my children to grow up expecting presents or think that money solves everything.

Anyway, here's the children cycling in East Coast Park.





Danielle's legs were still too short but she insisted on riding.


After an hour, we went to build sandcastles.

Everyone chipped into the building of it and it was definitely great bonding for the family.



All of us, though tired, had a really enjoyable time as we saw the fruits of our labour at the end of it all



After that, we had dinner at East Coast Lagoon Food Centre which definitely brings back memories of my good old days where my parents used to bring me there after my swimming training at night.

We used to eat duck rice or porridge there and so I ordered that for my children to also enjoy what I used to enjoy in the past.

As for myself and CT, we ordered the beef tribe noodles and also ordered satay which the kids love!



Great activities in the beach plus great food and company..what more can I ask for? I feel so blessed..Happy Birthday Caleb! Hope you enjoyed yourself!
