One of the main highlights of the weekend retreat was spend the night in an actual tent. Girls were mighty excited!
After brushing our teeth at the bungalow, we headed for the tent that hubby set up that morning.
Playing with torchlight and shadows in the tent
They loved it!
After playing and singing for a while, then came the tricky part - getting the girls to actually SLEEP. I was actually kinda worried before the trip. What if Erin can't sleep? What if she fusses/cries/screams at night and wakes up everyone else in the campsite? Luckily, nothing dramatic of that sort happened. Though it was far from a good nights sleep. (my own bed at home felt sooooo good the next night!). After all, it was still a tent! Enough said ;-)
Next morning, girls woke up bright and early-
Enjoying view from the tent
They were pretty keen to get out to explore but we asked them to sit and enjoy the view for a while first. Trying to get few more minutes of sleep. hehe.
Walking around Campsite
Walking to the bungalow to wash up
After washing up, we headed down for breakfast -
Nasi Lemak spread for breakfast
After breakfast, we were informed there was going be round 2 of the "Create with Nature" art activity as the ones made the day before were too wet. Ah well..... it was a pity we didn't take a photo of the art we created (hand print for Erin and smiley face for Elyssa). But kids were more than happy to do it again.
Morning Nature Walk
Kids collected pretty flowers and ferns for their art activity. The camp director also explained about the various plants.
Elyssa hard at work with her art
And of course Erin didn't want to be left out ;-)
