happy birthday

Its been a whole year, last year at 18:48 Kaitlin was born followed by Kristin 1 minute later.  So today we celebrated our survival, if we can make the 1st year, the rest will be easy.  We headed to Sentosa Island to see the aquarium.  sentosa

Resorts World is a cool place, there is a little bit of everything.  What’s really nice is that you are outside, but mostly under cover to avoid any rain.


The aquarium starts with a tunnel through one of the large tanks. If you look closely you can see the girls are amazed and just staring at the ceiling. They loved every minute!


Did you say something about a shark?


This aquarium is huge!  They claim the largest viewable tank in the world, and I believe it. The main tank has a 3 story wall that just goes forever.


Here is Kristin trying to grab the fish.


The girls loved being able to get up close to the tanks. Here they are playing footsie against the glass.


The strangest fish here – Its the cuttlefish, delicious but certainly strange looking.


Qumi educated the girls on the different fish – which ones are tasty, which are not.


This cylinder forces the fish to swim around in circles the whole time.  The girls kept laughing at the amount of fish coming by.

The next thing to check out in Sentosa is Universal Studios, although we have to decide when the girls will actually appreciate it – maybe in a couple of years.


I have more pictures from today and will post them soon.

early birthday gifts

I took advantage of the sales at a local baby fair and bought the girls some early birthday presents. Since they both get bored sitting in the stroller for too long, we are trying something different.


They seemed pretty happy!


Now if only I got my birthday present early and it came in red…

After only 10 minutes or so, Kristin is passed out. Luckily these trikes recline and have a sun-shade.


Birthdays Galore

We celebrated a few birthdays this week.  The girls turned 2 months on the same day I turned 444 months.  Grandma’s birthday is today and Fu-chan’s is coming up soon. We enjoyed a quiet little party at home with ton’s of Mexican food and an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. 

And the cake!

Everyone got their turns to hold the babies, it was really nice. I got to take a short break and enjoy some champagne and beer. I need to get them all back again soon 🙂
