It was a rainy day, to M’s disappointment. But that made it cooler — appreciated!! We went to a mall where they had fun in a kids zone — bumper cars, bungee jumping etc. Both Jacob and I said that this is the kind of place we won’t go unless at our kids’ birthday request!
I am glad that God provides for my children. My birder boy needed to see some birds. When he heard he couldn’t go on a boat, he gave himself a little pep talk. And sure enough, we did see some birds. Our long lens is broken. But we saw several pairs of pied kingfishers, blue-tailed bee eaters, and bank mynas. We had fun watching the birds go into their nests in the river bank.
We promised E to take him on a dawn boat ride to look for birds. We woke up (after a very bad night’s sleep) at 5:20 am, and it had just rained. Everyone was so keen to get outside. The river as beautiful, as usual. But because of a fatal accident with one of the boats that had happened that past week, none of the boats were allowed to go out. So we took a long walk instead.
