We packed our bags after those couple of days of crazy decluttering and headed up for Penang, so this week has been a "school holiday" for the boys. We've not done much, aside from resting at home, and meeting up with the hubby's relatives for Chinese New Year. The boys have experienced fire-crackers, and also witnessed a lion dance. They've eaten bak kwa, stuffed themselves with mandarin oranges, and collected lots of ang pows. Baby J has been fascinated with the dog and keeps yelling "Nicky!" and crawling over to pat him.
We also managed to sneak in a trip to the Penang Botanic Gardens. It's been really hot these few days, but everyone had a nice time exploring. They peered at snails...
... picked cannonball flowers, and snapped away at what caught their eye (Junior J is quite obsessive about taking photos these days):
The boys had a good time running off all their energy. I've realized that, even with the heat, they do need plenty of time outdoors, otherwise they tend to get restless! Hopefully, we'll be able to get them out and about across the weekend too.
