After a beautiful morning of swimming at Pondok Indah Water Park on Sunday, we arrived home to find some of the kampung kids waiting at our gate and playing in the park across the road, wanting to play with Samudra.
I didn’t feel up for a house full of chaos and kids so suggested we all go to the hidden park in the complex a little further down the road. The kids had never been there before and were so excited to see the slide and climbing equipment and kicked around Samudra’s ball on the grass. One of the parents opposite the park has put the play equipment there so attract kids to come and play so his son would have friends to play with, but I have only ever seen the little boy once when I have been there so I hope he’s found somewhere else to have fun.
As we were kicking the ball around I caught some movement on the ground out of the corner of my eye, and when I stopped and looked down, I noticed that the ground was covered in frogs hiding in the grass! It completely freaked me out as I didn’t want to squash any, but Samudra had just noticed them too and was chasing frogs around screaming so I decided it was best to leave them in peace.
So we headed home, with the kids singing Indonesian songs and giggling every time I looked at them and as soon as I got inside with Samudra he passed out after a morning of swimming and afternoon of running around with his friends. It was the perfect end to a beautiful day in Jakarta.
