Jacob Ballas Children's Garden

I took the girls for some outdoor fun today, and this was what they got up to. Urbanites to the core, they lasted all of 1 hour before they exclaimed "Mommy, we are sweating like pigs !!" and i had to take them indoors. Nonetheless they enjoyed themselves ...

At 7, she's still very happy to go down a slide

C checking out whether it's worth her while to actually climb this 'thing'

Rachel didn't care...

C opted for the easy one instead (ummm... guess one has to start somewhere...)
But the rickety bridge was 'easy peasy'
the Calabash fruit

For those who haven't been to the Children's Garden at Botanics, do give it a go. There's a treehouse to climb, a maze to get lost in, a fountain for wet play, and playgrounds to spend some energy. The many storyboards put up are also fun to read, and Rachel went round taking down names of some of the species that fascinated her. I particularly liked the Calabash tree which was in fruiting season, and it was oh soo tempting to pluck those huge melons :) thankfully, i didn't set a bad example...
