Jerlene and Javier started their swimming lesson today. Jerlene had been looking forward to this day since one month back. As for Javier, he's quite unwilling to attend swimming class initially. However, after seeing our neighbour's girl also joining the class, he decided to give it a go. The first lesson is simply some basic kicking and getting used to the water.

Breakfast was included for our stay at Legoland Hotel. From some forum, we heard that usually after 8:30am, one may need to queue for a table. So in order to beat the crowd, we went to Bricks Restaurant at around 8am. Once again, there are many Lego models all over the restaurant. The breakfast spread was pretty normal but at least there were waffles, pancakes and soft boiled eggs that the kids like.
It was a great weekend at Legoland and everyone enjoyed it.
As there was still about 2 hours time before Legoland closes, we decided to let the kids had some fun in the park. They first took a lesson in the Driving School. All the while, Javier had been "driving" at the Junior Driving School. This is his first time driving on proper roads.
We have been to Legoland many times over the past two years but today will be our first time spending a night at Legoland Hotel. We were there to check in at about 2pm but was told that our room will only be ready at around 4pm. For the kids, spending 2 hours at the hotel lobby was not an issue as there are Lego blocks everywhere to keep them busy.
Overall we were quite satisfied with the hotel room. By the way, as a Legoland annual pass member, we are entitled to a 25% discount for the hotel room.
We had a little gathering at my sis place to celebrate my niece's birthday. There is a huge age gap between my niece and her cousins as can be seen in the pictures below. My niece had grown so tall that she is now taller than my sis. And because of her height, Jerlene actually gets pretty confused in differentiating who is her cousin (表姐) and who is her aunt (姑姑). Not sure if this is a good news for my sis or bad news for my niece......lol...... Anyway, they do look more like sisters rather than mother and daughter. :-)
As both Jerlene and Javier are going to have their swimming lesson in a few week's time, they started practising their basic strokes in the adult pool. Jerlene has been swimming with her arm float in adult pool since few weeks back but this is Javier's first time. Although he knows that he will not sink with the arm float, he still had the fear. Everytime we tried to lead him to the middle of the pool, he will try to turn back and swim to the edge. But at least he's willing to try now and should be ready for the lessons.
Jerlene has been trying to conquer her fear of sliding down from a fireman pole for the past few months. Whenever she saw one in the playground, she would want to try but require my assistance. And now that she has mastered the technique, she can't stop doing it.......
Javier's bottom front teeth have been shaky for past few weeks but refused to fall off. It seems like his adult teeth cannot stand it in the gum anymore and force their way out. Now both the baby and adult teeth co-exist. Hopefully the baby teeth will drop soon so that the adult teeth can grow properly.
