After reading about this Splash Park @ The Mines from My Little Sprout's blog, I got so excited and couldn't wait till after office hour to tell hubby about it. I quickly sms-ed him and told him I've got a plan for that coming Sunday and glad that hubby was so supportive and agreed to it immediately ^_^
Anything for his little darlings will be granted.
We arrived at around 10am, just as the park open. Operating hours is at 10am -10pm. There were 3 sections on the park - The open air fountain-like area, The swimming pool (water at knee length) and The playground.

Glad that they did not protest when we told them "Enough and time to bath". XJ was actually shivering when the wind blows. I quickly carried her to the washroom (next to the pool) and bath her. I was so worried when I saw her shivering and thought I could warm her up a little at the washroom but too bad, the shower were icy cold water too. Everything are FOC, so can't complaint too much. haha
I quickly bath her clean. While putting cloths on XJ, I asked YX to bath on his own, quickly. This is the first time YX took his own bath and I just got to close 1 eye. Back at home, I gave them a thorough bath again.
After they took their bath, both still did not get enough. They proceeded to the playground and we spend another 15 minutes or so over there.

|Wheeeee......YX slides down|

We walked around The Mines before we when for our lunch. XJ was showing her tiredness as she was not very cooperative and started to demand for this and that. Glad that YX ate his lunch obediently. Hubby felt irritated too and decided to leave for home. That was around 2 pm. In the car, both kids slept. They continue with their slumber even we reached home and I got to disturbed them twice before they finally wakes up at around 6pm. Looking at their long afternoon nap, you can guess that both did not sleep early and this morning, I had a HARD TIME waking YX up for school. He cried a little mumbling he wanted to sleep as he was very tired. Not only YX, both hubby and I were very tired and had a hard time waking up this morning too! If only today is a HOLIDAY...........
