Splash ......... at the Zoo

We went to the Zoo yesterday afternoon. This was our 3rd time there. Supposed to be a bad time to visit the zoo bcos of the afternoon sun. Glad that it turned out to be a cloudy/windy afternoon. Good day for an outdoor trip :)

You can see that the boys spend most of the time at the Children's Playground rather than watching the animals !! LOL :)


Amos, Zac, my helper & I

My 2 little boys marching down the lane. Amos look like a small little man, walking with big wide steps.... ....awww.....I love that picture of him a lot :)


Amos was scared of the swing just a month ago. So shiok to be on the swing again. This time, Amos was smiling away... ... :)

Amos : "Hello, I'm at the Zoo....!!"

Mummy & Daddy's love for Amos. He just love the water :)

Zac playing with the water shooter all the time.... aiming at targets and wet them.... hehe ;p

Zac was excited & running all over the zoo... I managed to grap hold of him for a picture.

We took abt 100+ photos yesterday. But randomly chose the above .

Hope you all have a good weekend ahead :)

72 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Rolando said...

Such beautiful children you have Janice. You're blessed!

Nick Phillips said...

Janice, looks like you and the boys had a fun time at the zoo.

The last time I went to the zoo was a couple of months back with my buddy and his family. We all had a great time but the only bad thing is the zoo never changed much since my days as a child ...

J@n!ce said...

Rolando : Thanks for being my first commentor. Yes, I'm really blessed to have Amos & Zac. They are my miracles :)

J@n!ce said...

Nick : Is the buddy you refering to ... hmmm... Adrian? hehe ;p
Our Zoo changed a lot over the years. It was so much different from the days I visited when I was a kid. They are building a new water playground for the kids. Will be ready end of 2008. It looks really cool, I saw the illo :)

Another great and fun family outing. Can see from the pictures that everyone is so happy and smiling. Such family outing are so enjoyable.

I have not been to Singapore Zoo for such a long time. Cant remember when was the last time. If I go to SIN, I may probably consider a visit to the zoo. :)

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Wow it's been so long since we last went to the zoo. And we agree with u! Our zoo has changed drastically. Should go there someday.

Glad to see u and your boys having a ball there! =)

J@n!ce said...

Joe : Oh yes, the images from the new casio is clearer & sharper.

We nearly drain out the battery yesterday. Din bring along spare. Could be bcos we took continuous shots that's why it used up the power faster :)

kegler747 said...

Wow! I love Singapore Zoo and after that the nearby Night Safari. After a long day & night at the zoo a scoop of Ben & Jerry's ice cream will make your day more memorable :)

Sam Chan said...

Hi Janice,

All these photos can tell the message that you all are really having a great time at the Zoo.

Have a nice weekend!

eastcoastlife said...

There are new features at the zoo, I heard. I have yet to visit, my son brought some guests to Night Safari though.

Marzie : Thanks. I need a good & comforting hug today :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

MW : Frankly, I won't visit the zoo if not for the kiddo. I prefer to go Night Safari, been there once only. Haven't bring the kids cos they will be tired around 8pm :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : You seem to know Singapore pretty well. *applause*. Yes, ther night safari is just nearby & a seat at the Ben & Jerry's is a good sum up for the day :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

ECL : Wowow, you son becomes a tour guide bringing guests around. How cool !! :)

JeanChia

JesseTheCat said...

Singapore zoo looks like such a beautiful place.I wish I was going to the zoo myself.. :)

Mummy to QiQi said...

Janice, what i did is to divert QiQi's attention so that she wont see the playgroup, hehe.....otherwise sure stucked there instead of seeing animals :(

ed said...

Looks like your family had fun, especially your boys.

Don't you feel Night Safari is better in terms of animals? They are usually lazing in shade due to the hot weather, the Night Safari is the only time I really see them hyper-active.

MakeTraffic said...

Judy said...

Lovely photos once again...all happy and enjoying yourselves.

I've never been to Singapore Zoo. Something to consider but the heat gets to me.

J@n!ce said...

Jean : I love to visit the zoo when young, but now it is tiring to visit the zoo with the kids. Its fun to see them enjoying. But as parents, its just tired preparing, going & actually gone there & the trip back. Its fulfilling once you have done that though.
LOL!! Oh yes, his full face may be out soon :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Jesse : I heard that Singapore Zoo is one of the best in the world :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Chin Nee : I will tend to do that also at times, but for this trip we intend to drop them over at the playground so no hiding from them :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Ed : Night Safari is definitely a better place to visit. I've been there once just after their opening. I heard that there are more attractions now. :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

MT : You should bring your little one there. Rem to bring spare clothings cos I think he will want to have some fun at the playground too :)

Hi Janice! Thanks for dropping by my blog. :D

You have a gorgeous family! I am planning to take the kids to Singapore next year. The zoo trip is of course, a must.

Emila Yusof said...

Wow! Whata fun at the zoo! I haven't been to the zoo here for quite sometimes.

J@n!ce said...

Mel : Thanks for coming over to tell me this. I appreciate it :)

I hope you have a good week ahead :)

Blur Ting said...

Enjoy the zoo while the boys still love it. We used to visit the zoo few times a month when they were little. Now, the only reason they go to the zoo is for Ben & Jerry's ice cream outside the zoo. We don't even step inside anymore. :-I

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : You are right, they will not want to visit the zoo anymore when they gets older. It is only the dessert shop there that keeps them wanting to return but will head home after that. haha :D

Thanks for sharing your experience with me :)
