Happy 4th wedding anniversary

For years ago, my brother and his wife tied the knot.  It was one memorable moment for them because his wife was also pregnant when they got married.  They are so blessed I must say.  Just like other married couple, they have encountered trials too.  They were separated for months after a year of being married.  My brother was so frustrated that time.  He went back to us with their son because her wife left the house one day.  However, their love for each other prevails and they were reunited again.  Forgiveness has been given and decided to move on, forget the past and focus on the present and the future.

Now, they are on their 4th wedding anniversary.  The scars from the past is healing and they are now living happily together with their son.  I can see that they live peacefully.  God and the love for each other is the center of their life and family now.  We seldom see each other though because they live far from us, but the communication is still there.  They sometimes visited us having our quick and simple family bonding.

Anyways, on their 4th wedding anniversary I wish them happy life and more blessings to come.  I hope that they will continue love each other and always put God always in their house.   God bless always and happy wedding anniversary to both of you Bong and Mary.

Playing with the kids before classes starts

Before the busy and study time starts, the sister and I decided to treat the kids at the mall and play with them.  We went to the play area and having fun.  I am also having fun with them.  To be honest I haven’t tried to play at the Time Zone (the play area).  It was my first time to go there and I must say I am having so much fun.  I felt like a kid again.haha!  We play basketball, bowling, and other games for kids that I don’t know what it is called.LOL  And I tell you, it is a moment that I will treasure forever.

We played for more than an hour and I am so tired.  I really felt my age after we play games.  The challenge is that when you play good, you will get more tickets and one ticket is equal to one points.  The more points the biggest chances of getting any stuffs/items you like.  Unfortunately, we did not able to hit the points on the item that the kids wanted to have.  Better luck next time kids.  The most important is that we are having fun and we did have an awesome time together before you will go back to school and will be very busy studying.   Thank you, kids, for you make me feel young again!

Family summer outing

I have said in my other post about the family summer outing plans.  I am happy to say that we had our family outing last Sunday.  I have picked a resort and is not too far and budget friendly.  We had our summer outing at Bay Coronon Beach Resort at Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur.  It is really a nice place and has four swimming pools.  Two for the adults and two for the kids.   The kids are having fun and enjoying the water.  It is nice to have a break and having fun away from the busy city.  Not like the previous summer outing, we did not stay overnight because of our little angel, Lian and my father did not like the idea to stay overnight.

It was a memorable summer outing of the family, unfortunately, we are not complete.  The older brother and his wife, the younger brother and his wife and kids did not make it.  They have a earlier engagement that cannot be canceled that is why they did not come to our summer family outing.  I just shared some photos on social media to keep them updated.  Even if we are not complete, we still enjoyed the summer outing and we will treasure this moment.  I promised to go back there again with the family.  I will make sure that in our second time to go there, the family is complete so it will be more enjoyable and memorable.

If you are planning to have a family outing you should consider visiting Bay Coronon Beach Resort.  It is nice and budget friendly.

78th Birthday of my Aunt

Yesterday, we were invited at the 78th birthday of my aunt.  It is the first that she will be celebrating her birthday in an extravagant way.  She cried because she did not expect an extravagant celebration.  Actually, her kids wanted to surprise her and shows their love and care to her especially now that the aunt is forgetful.  She often forgets the name of her kids, her siblings and other relatives.  She can’t barely recognize and can’t see clearly because of diabetes.  She can recognize us once we speak.  My aunt shows the signs of Alzheimer’s disease.  It needs a lot of patience when you are talking to her.

Anyways, the celebration went well.  All invited person comes especially the one she requested, her younger sister.  We heard a never-ending thank you from her.  Told us that we made her very happy on her birthday.  I am so happy that she enjoyed her day.  She laughed a lot, dance and sing.  It remember my late mother seeing her.  Only if my mom stayed longer we would have celebrate her 69th birthday and mother’s day as well.  Again happy birthday to my aunt, I wish you good health and pray that God will give you more birthdays to celebrate.  Keep smiling and be happy always!  xoxo
