Mid autumn festival at Gardens by the Bay

Since I do not work on Fridays, I try my best to bring the kids to some kind of fun activities on that day and this week, seeing that it's still considered mid autumn festivals period, off we went to Gardens by the Bay.

I love the luscious city garden.  It's huge and frankly quite a windy and pretty spot. The super trees are awesome and I find the skyway bridge not too scary and yet sufficiently impressive for kids. 

So off we went. We drive there and parking was easy since we arrive around 6:30pm before the crazy crowd came in. We managed to walk around the gardens and took some silly photos.

After which we went straight for the skyway bridge.  We loved the view up there and since it was F1 weekend in Singapore, we could even caught a tiny glimpse of the cars racing by.

Showing us how strong he is. 

Well, right after the bridge we walked to the Meadow Gardens area where the lantern festival activities were.

There were beautifully lit fixtures everywhere. 

It looked even more amazing after night fall. 

By the time we finished walking around and had some dinner from the stalls that sold food, it was close to 8pm. Normally the kids sleep at 8pm except on Fridays and Saturdays when I allow them a little more leeway.  Anyway, it was late so we made our way back to the carpark. 

At the entrance of the Flower Dome was a big backdrop so we took some obligatory photos. 

The kids had a wonderful time but we were all exhausted by the time we got home.

When I was putting the boy to bed, I told him I would only stay for a short while as I'm tired and needed to go to bed and he say "you can go now if you really need to sleep!" Ohhhh. :)
