Sanford Florida meets Singapore!

Our final visitors while we are here in Singapore was Lenny's cousin and his wife, Matthew and Katie. Our girls were flower girls in their wedding 2 years ago and they were bound and determined to come visit us while we were here - and their turn FINALLY came! They came just before Chinese New Year and stayed for 2 weeks in total in Asia - took a few trips in between to experience Cambodia and Vietnam.
Their Arrival - so I screwed up and thought they landed at 1:30 AM on Sunday...but nope! It was 1:30 AM on MONDAY! So since I don't "work" I headed to pick them up after their 24 hour + flight. Here is the obligatory photo:

They came just before Chinese New Year to TRUELY have the cultural experience:

We also took them to the River Safari that had just reopened at the zoo. The ride was lame but the sights at there were really cool.

From the looks of it - a good time was had by ALL at the River Safari:

Our next stop on the sights of Singapore was to celebrate our anniversaries as we celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2014 and Matthew and Katie celebrated their 2nd. So I have always wanted to go to the chocolate bar at the Marina Bay Sands and now was my opportunity to CASH IN. Katie didn't mind either!

We took them to the Gardens by the Bay to the Tree Top Walk.

We even made it to the old Ford Factory - The factory is the site of the historic surrender of the British to the Japanese on 15 February 1942, at the end of the Battle of Singapore in World War.

Lenny took them to the Chinese Gardens (I had kid pickup duty) and then we ended our day at the Changi Parade which is the finale of Chinese New Year:

We had a GREAT time with Katie and Matthew and even gave them a little glimpse of what parenthood will be like with our girls! Thanks for coming to visit us in SINGAPORE!!
