The Christmas holidays brought three weeks off from school – and that brought lots of time for Nyan to hang out with his bestie Jayden, as well as brother Jonnie and the rest of the family. Let’s take a look.
Some time in and around the pool:
The boys spent a fair amount of time outside, walking around fields and on abandoned rail tracks near Jayden’s place:
There was bowling too. Strike!
One evening, Jayden and his family headed for a sunset picnic near downtown, and they invited Nyan along. What great views!
We also went to the Science Center one rainy afternoon. The kids mostly ran around and ran away from the adults, so not many pictures – but we did manage this video:
And finally, Nyan spent New Year’s Eve on a sleepover at Jayden’s, at which everyone managed to stay up all the way til midnight. Much fun – and twerking – was had!
Remember how we said our Christmas Even plans got scuttled because of some ill-timed fevers? It was Kyle and his sister who weren’t feeling well. By a few days after Christmas they were back to 100% strength so we went for a rescheduled Christmas dinner over at their place.
Was it worth the wait? The kids sure seemed to think so:
Little Kara is getting so big!
We ate like kings and queens, of course:
And we posed for pictures:
A very nice afternoon and evening. At the end of it, Bryan drove us home in his convertible:
Nyan loves it with the top down:
Singapore at night:
Singapore at night, with the occasional Christmas light thrown in:
Singapore has an entertainment district on a near-shore island called Sentosa. It’s attached to Singapore proper by car, walkways and whatnot, and it’s got hotels, beaches, the amusement park, the aquarium, etc. And…a luge ride! Basically motorless go-carts. One day in November, Nyan went with Jayden and his family.
You have to ride a ski lift-style cable car to get to the site. Pretty great views from up there!
And finally, the ride itself!
Not much more to say. I think Nyan was a little nervous ahead of time, having never done this before, but he had an absolute blast and is already making plans to return!
Just another in our periodic check-in of Nyan with his friends. This edition features all people and canines from our apartment complex.
It’s always a good time with Nadia – whether that’s a playdate, a lunch date, or a mini-picnic with Nadia and a few other friends.
And finally. Do we love dogs? We do. The little one is Lemon, who belongs to another classmate who gets off the bus with Nyan; the other is a random golden retriever we met outside the complex one night. Sweet pup.
