This year we ( me and Barb) got a chance to get our kids to celebrate together. One month before , we already plan where to go and we just want something simple and easy. After few discussion, still nothing come out, we thought of give up and will do individual. Then this picnic idea, came from Barb, and i agree with her idea, from there we start to plan.
Like i said in previous post , beside than planning the birthday party for them, at the same time i am also mid doing their new room and shifting them to their new room, hoping all can done before their birthday.
Before we plan for the picnic, i told the boys this year there will be no party for them, just a simple one at home and in school, they look at me and kind of sad. It's a good idea choosing picnic as a birthday party, it would be better if the weather not so hot!
It is a Sunday morning, all my in laws had to work and also my hub, so at the picnic party, it's only kids from my side. I brought the 7 kids with me and off we depart the house at around 8am. Hard to find parking on a Sunday morning, looks like everyone woke up early on Sunday and go to park for morning exercise. It's quite a challenge for me to bring 5 kids ( the other two came later) and not forget the foods and drinks and party packs!!! Every kids i assign them to help me with those lighter stuff, and i am carrying a tray of mee siam and 30 packs of nasi lemak and i went for second round to bring the packet drinks.
the birthday boys...

We are the earliest, everyone still not there, after we put all the stuff at one and the only hut at the park, kids can't wait to go to the playground and running around and i manage to snap some pictures also.
huge crowds doing their morning dancing at the park with the loud music blazing, so happening ya?
some cherry tomatoes, cucumber, nuggets and konyaku jellies from your truly.
Barb brought some char siew puff, nyonya kuih, siew mai, fish balls, sausages and some bottle drinks.

After the light breakfast, all kids can't wait to go to the stream and catch small fishes, this is my boys second exprience at the stream. We brought them to this stream when they are 2yo+ but that time they are still young not really enjoy, but just like the water. Last year we attended a mom's kid birthday party here too, but it was raining, the boys just get to play for a while. This time they really enjoy themselve so much!! They spent almost one hour there!
look at the kids, busy catching fishes. This place is cooling with not so much sun light, now we are planning another mini picnic by the stream!! This is a better place for picnic, can monitors the kids and also we can sit at the side.
After the kids spent about one hour + at the stream, the sun is getting hot, and it is around 11.15am, and everyone about to leave. We have to "pull" all the kids out from the stream and only can start the cake cutting session.
angry bird cuppies for this year. :)
singing happy birthday song....
the three birthday kids.
Ashley enjoy her cupcake.
Fearles favourite chocolate cupcake.
Party packs for the kids. This year i am losing idea on what to prepare and what to give. Use zip bag and put some junks in. Look plain, so i add some colourful sticker and wrote every kids name on the party pack to make it look nicer.
thank you everyone for the lovely pressies for my boys.
party pack from Barb to the kids, so creative! I love her thank you note!

Thank you everyone for coming to my boys picnic birthday celebration, and hope everyone of you do enjoy yourself. I am sure all the kids enjoy because my boys and the cousins already ask me when do i bring them again for picnic!!!!! We are actually planning another picnic trip, hut this round we just want simple food drinks and not carry tons of foods and drinks like mad. I got a body ache and sore arm and shoulder the next day.
