Friday was a public holiday so Brennan had the day off. Since last time we went to MacRitchie we didn't end up making it to the tree top walk he didn't want to miss this excursion. So without thinking about the fact that everyone else also had the day off, we headed out. The parking lot was entirely full and cars were lining the street. I felt a little discouraged by that but it ended up being okay.
The start of the hike.
Part of the line.
I read a blog about this hike and the writer said you should do a Titanic pose on the bridge to feel the wind and the swaying. Brennan made me be do it, not that I needed to to feel the swaying. I'd say the swaying is quite obvious the whole time.
Apparently we didn't get enough walking at MacRitchie, and we decided to head to the Southern Ridges on Saturday.
An uncharacteristic picture of my dad. On the Alexandria bridge.
Sunday we strictly observed as a day of rest. :) Although, I was in charge of primary at church and we didn't have anyone for singing time. So my mom got to fill in. She loves doing it so much it can hardly be considered work though. :)
Monday we decided to stick closer to home and we headed to Pasir Ris Park. I go here quite often with the kids, but this time we explored a whole part of the park I've never been to before and it was really neat!
First we walked through the mangroves and we saw tons of little crabs. Look just left of that tennis ball.

Tatum climbed these ropes to a pretty tall slide all by herself and was quite proud. She wanted me to come closer and watch her do it again. Unfortunately, she struggled a bit more the second time and got very frustrated. I don't have a lot of patience in those moments so I just told her to give up and climb down. Well that girl's stubbornness sometimes works to her advantage I guess. There was no way she was climbing down. She kept trying until she figured it out. It was pretty amusing.
