Chili's, New Toys and The Magic School Bus

Joseph was supposed to go out with Daalin for their weekly father-and-son-time last night. But it turned out to be a family outing instead.

I realized I had a RM10-ToysRUs voucher that would expire today. So Joseph got two new toys - a HotWheels ambulance and a dump truck.
We went to Chili's for dinner.

Two entrees and two free kids meal got all of us very full.

Joseph ate very well. He fed himself and even ate the broccoli. He said, "I don't really like the taste but I just eat everything."
We've been trying to explain to him that he has to eat everything to grow strong and healthy. I'm glad he understands and is practising good eating habits.
After dinner, the rain had stopped and we stopped by his favourite fountain site.
Joy-Anne wasn't too thrilled so we went back inside to Jusco. Joseph wanted to go to 'the drive car place'.

Before going home, we made another purchase for the kids - 2 The Magic School Bus vcds.

They are currently on a Magic-School-Bus craze. It all started when Pastor Nancy gave Joe a Magic School bus book. Then I found the VCDs at Jusco. So I bought one on the topic of digestion. Joseph loved it. Now he can tell me how the food travels down the esophagus and into the stomach, all about stomach acid, intestines and villi and what happens after that.
I thought it was very educational. So he now has two more in his Magic School Bus collection. He wanted to watch it as soon as we got home but I told him he had to go to bed. Usually, he would whine and kick up a fuss. But last night he was very obedient.

And this morning, he learned that phytoplanktons get eaten by zooplanktons which get eaten by anchovies which get eaten by tuna fishes.
