We took advantage of the long break of May Day and Wesak Day to bring our kids to visit their grandparents. With a toddler and a preschooler tagging along, I must say that it wasn’t an easy trip, especially I had to drive up north for about 5 hours.
My son made a fuss and refused to be seated in car seat half way through the journey. My wife and I had to use all the tricks up our sleeve to keep the kids entertained throughout the journey.
Quite a challenge though…
Anyway the trip worth more than anything else as we brought our children to the beach the next day after we reached the destination: A second trip for my daughter and first for my son.
My daughter enjoyed the sun and fun very much. She played with her cousins that we brought along. From building whatever she could with sands to collecting sea shells of all shapes to running around the beach.
As for my son, he initially walked on the sandy beach for a few seconds. After a while, he realized something amiss (we couldn’t figure out what) and decided to stick to his mother and refused to come down and walk again on the beach no matter how hard we coaxed him. My wife had to carry him all along. After all, don’t forget that this was his virgin beach trip.
The beach we went is a private beach and it’s only accessible to members. Our auntie brought us there.
It was an enjoyable trip and we ended with a dinner at the Club’s restaurant.
At the end of the trip, I asked my daughter, among all the things we did during this holiday, what activities she enjoyed the most.
Not surprisingly, she answered, “The beach!”
