We came armed with hats, sunblock, snacks and drinks for the boys and both Seth and K sure showed that they were totally unperturbed by the hot and humid weather.
We decided explore the park near the Cluny Road entrance, to give the boys the opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of nature.
K, started his walk in the park by chasing after the pigeons, and gleefully caused distressed to the birds which were at first, peacefully feeding on scraps dropped by other visitors. This caused a little bit of distress to me, as I have this fear of pigeons flying too close.
I had to be predictable and took a pic of the two of them sitting on the long bow branch of the Tembusu tree. A 100-over year old tree which some of us might recognise, as it is featured on the back of the Singapore $5 note and a common feature seen in wedding photographs taken at Botanic Gardens.
As seen in the video, K gamely alternated between his two favorite expressions for photo-taking; his smile/grimace and 'coy handsome face'. I am even more convinced now that K has a natural flair for acting and loves to show off when there is an 'audience'. Most likely it will be "Speech and Drama Lessons, here we come!", when he turns 3 or 4 years old.
When we started walking back in the late morning, K wanted to take a picture of Seth. It was really amusing to see two toddlers imitating what adults do; Seth posed for the picture and K became the 'photographer'. Too bad I did not have another camera on hand to catch the boys in action.
This is the photo that K took for Seth...
My toddler never fails to amaze me.
