MacRitchie Reservoir Park

We went on a fun hike one Saturday to MacRitchie Reservoir Park. We did the treetop walk. It was great fun. One thing I love about Singapore is there are lots of places to get outdoors and explore. We can let the kids run free. It was very muddy the day we went... rainy season and all. I think that helped to make it more fun :-) We saw lots of monitor lizards and a few monkeys. The plants and trees were equally fun to see. We were hot, dirty and sweaty when we finished which is right up my crew's alley!!!

On our way out, we passed a monkey getting into a trash can. There was a small crowd gathered around watching him. The boys started getting a little too close and that sucker showed its nasty, large teeth. Yikes, they don't lie on those signs that say feeding the monkeys alters their behaviour and may makes them aggressive. Um... scary! Thankfully, I pulled them back fast. Oh, they thought it was AWESOME.... so what do I know ;-)

lots of stairs

The kids were so cute. This was them taking a picture of the first monkey they saw :-) I love the sparkle it captures in their eyes. 

Emma was a great sport this day and let me take lots of pictures of her!

Beautiful trees

We love all the signs that are posted here ;-)

Sweet brothers and best friends! They both carried a camera this day and got lots of great shots!

My loves

 Don't turn back... but you also can't pass the monkey!
Aren't the trees amazing?!?!

 Very TRUE sign!!!
Near the end of our hike... they all still had smiles!
