Asia's largest ferris wheel-The Singapore Flyer

We rode on Asia's largest ferris wheel (7th biggest in the world) The Singapore Flyer.
It was a great view and we had the capsule all to ourselves. 
We enjoyed looking out all over Singapore and the water. 
We all took turns taking pictures (Ashton and Weston are becoming quite the photographers!) and got some great shots!

Singapore science centre

The kids all got a kick out of the double decker bus's!

Nixon trying to figure out where my body went!

Waiting to see the movie about the sun a moon

Tommy got some street food and the boys all had some!

Ashton out cold on the train. His head was hurting pretty bad

Taking the train! Reminded us of Tokyo so much!

We had a blast at the Science center. It was huge and we did a lot of walking. 
We decided to take the train but the boys also loved riding the double decker bus's (see top picture)!

The kids loved exploring all of the interactive exhibits at the museum and we took advantage of letting them run free!
Unfortunately Ashton got what seemed to be a migraine about halfway through (his first one ever and I'm sure not his last) and even though we had Tylenol, he wasn't able to kick it. 
He was a good sport and hung in there, but it never completely went away until the next morning. 

We left the science center in the late afternoon and headed over to the Singapore Flyer-Asias largest ferris wheel! .......

All awake and ready for day 2!

I have so many pictures to share of our spring break adventures that I will need to break it into a few posts.
This break our travels brought us to SINGAPORE!!!
What an awesome place. Especially coming from Jakarta, I think we all agreed that it was (very, very literally) a breath of fresh air!
We headed to the airport and on the way got a text that our flight was delayed an hour. But as we got checked in, we discovered it was delayed over 3 hours!!! 
Luckily, the kids are all at good travel ages that we found some food, then grabbed a corner of the airport and hunkered down for a bit. We only worried about the plans that we had for that evening. We had tickets for the 8pm animal safari tour and we still had to check into our hotel and then get to the zoo!
Thankfully Tommy had a car waiting for us when we arrived and we rushed to the hotel (we hadn't gotten any Singapore dollars yet, and our driver didn't have a credit card machine. But he said "I'll just give you my card and if you need a ride back to the airport, give me a call and pay me then. Have a great vacation!" so awesome!). Once we checked in we had 5 minutes up in the room for a bathroom break, then we headed down to our taxi.
The animal safari was really cool. Because it was so late, the animals were all out and about. I think the boys liked the black bear and lion the best!
We were all starving after and headed to good old burger king for a late dinner. 
We were all exhausted when we got back to our room. We found our beds and said goodnight!
