Traveling with kids

After one night and two days of travel, we finally arrived safely at the province of my parents.  I am traveling with my father, older brother and two nephews.  I really love to travel, but this time I am not enjoying it that much.  Indeed traveling with kids will make you exhausted especially if it is a long travel and you have to ride in a bus and vessel.  Transferring from bus to vessel is very tiring.  In addition to that, you are carrying you luggage.  How is that!?  I prefer to travel alone or with my father with me.  Fewer worries I must say.

But still it is a wonderful experience for me.  Even though I did not get enough sleep because of the kids.  Experience that will be added in my memory and will treasure those memories forever.  Our travel is very much tiring but seeing the nephews amazed of the things they have seen while traveling will make the travel fun and exciting.  Anyways, I am so thankful to God for we arrived safely to our destination.  Are kids are having fun playing with their cousins and enjoying the white sand beach this morning.  More memories to remember with this two kiddos in our seven days vacation.

Sunday is Fun Day and Family Day

Yes, a bit late post here.  Well, I just can’t find time to write because of the offline duties that I have to take care of.  Even if this is two days late, still I want to share the bonding that the family did last Sunday.  It is special because it was an abrupt decision.  The sister and I suppose to be watching a movie.  We will have a movie date.  My brother and his family is invited to a birthday celebration.   And father will be going to the house blessing of his friend.   In short, we have different agenda on that day.  But first, we went to the church attend a mass to give thanks to God for the wonderful day and weekend.

After church, we are busy preparing for our agenda when the father told us to go with him at his friend’s house blessing.  We are surprised and did not answer him right away.  The house blessing is at the farm.  And it made us decide to go with him.  It would be nice to go out and spend the day at the farm.  Free from pollution and free from busy and noisy city.  Our decision was worth.   The farm is so quiet, the kids are having fun running on the farm, looking at farm animals and looking at the tress and flowers.  We smell fresh air I must say.  Life at the farm is really nice indeed.  But I do not seen myself living in the quiet place for now.haha!  Anyways, thanks for the invites, the foods are sumptuous.  Also thanks for the free rides.  Our Sunday is full of fun and we have our great family bonding at the farm.

Thank you Lord

After six (6) days in the hospital the niece is finally discharged.  We are happy that she is fine now and in recovery stage after the operation.  What had happened to her scares us like heal.  She suffered of severe stomach pain for three days.  A wrong diagnose is really scary.  If only the first laboratory is right.  We are not blaming the first doctor we went to though because her pediatrician told us that the appendicitis symptoms are same with the UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) symptoms.   Now, that she is fine, we are thankful to God for we surpassed the trial.

I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to those who helped us.  To those who visited the niece in the hospital, those who bring foods, those who give financial support and to those who prayed for her successful operation and fast recovery.  We know that thank you is not enough but still we want to say thank you to all of you.  Special thanks to God for giving us all the strength to overcome every trials that the family is facing and fighting.  Also, thank you Lord for sending those people who have helped us.  May God bless you always and praying for more blessings to come to your life.

His 69th Birthday

My father celebrates his 69th birthday five days ago.  This is a bit late but I want to share still the little celebration we had during the 69th birthday of my father.  The plan of the sister to go out have dinner outside was not push through because the brother does not like the idea.  To him, going outside with kids is tiring and trouble.LOL!  Trouble because the kids would surely running here and there.  We will not be able to concentrate.  And the brother has a point.  We can do it when the little ones grow a bit older, the right age to enjoy with us and have fun.

The celebration is very simple.  The father invited his close friend only because it is a family celebration.  The father does not want an extravagant one either.  His only wish is that we are complete and his good health.  His wish did come true because my two brothers who lives far from us arrives and celebrate with us.  In fact they are the one buying the foods for the father’s birthday and cooked his favorite foods.  Also, the birthday cake for the kids.  The father was the happiest man in the world during his special day.  We had lots of fun, laughter, singing and savoring the foods on the table.  Thanks to my brothers and SIL for the sponsorship/treat.  Again, Happy Birthday father and I wish you good health, long life and happiness.
