Hotel / swimming

We were in Malacca the historical city of Malaysia last weekend.Rhianna has gone on quite a number of short trips since she was old enough to walk.But this trip was more meaningful since she now has the words to all the wonderful things that she saw.She could also demand ask for things or activities that she wanted to do.

All the way on the 2 1/2 hour drive,she was clutching the map to the hotel studying the hotel picture and the swimming pool..Oh,she was also holding on to the fully inflated turtle ring float (she was so ready to jump in the pool!) and hugging her baby doll (her current best friend).The first half hour was fine as she was asking me the names of the new things she saw on the map.The next 2 hours was a different story altogether.

As she was getting more and more impatient, all vocabulary seem to vanish from her lexicon and her answer to any questions asked was only one of either words.

Hotel / swimming

"You want to nap first?"  - "No,swimming"
"You want to come out with me and buy drinks?" - "No, hotel"
"Why don't you put down the float?"  - "No, swimming"

When nobody asked questions,she started whining using the two words alternately repeatedly...We had to endure that for 2 hours straight...

Beside the nightmarish car ride,we had a wonderful time exploring new things and providing her with new words.Now, if I only I can find time to turn the photos into an experience book...

The beautiful hotel at night

Fun and free spirited girls..Of course when the ride was over,the littlest one cried.

Then, she got to ride a pink scooter..solo this time

With the well travelled best buddy having lunch

The one thing that could make Rhianna eat her vege, pick up her toys,take afternoon naps and do all the impossibles..SWIMMING!
