Austin's 11th Birthday
Time really flies so fast when it comes to our kids growing up. Meng and I just can't believe our dear Austin is already 11! If only we can turn back time....
Since it's already vacation time, Austin, David, me, my sister in law, Lujene, and Austin's cousins Shane and Lance, headed off to Club Manila East for a day of swimming to celebrate Austin's birthday. We left the house at 6am in order to make sure we will be able to get a cabana.
We tried the kayak boats first since the other attractions are not yet open. Austin got scared at first but finally got to try riding the kayak by himself several times. David wasn't even scared and was even paddling with his hands.
Afterwards we played around the kiddie pool where the kids had fun taking turns going down the small slide. David was scared at first being left alone in the kiddie pool and was clinging on to me. But later on, he got the hang of it and was jumping up and down the pool. He also had fun going up and down the slide.
At around 10am, we had a snack since we had an early breakfast. Afterwards, we proceeded to the beach waves and stayed there for around an hour. The older kids then went to try out the giant slide, which was a disappointment because they had to push themselves in order to slide down.
Had lunch in Club Manila East before proceeding home. The kids had fun but was very bitin.
I cooked spaghetti for dinner and had a small cake delivered for the traditional candle blowing ceremony. David, of course assisted in the candle blowing. Overall, I think Austin had fun naman on his special day, even if he had to work a bit to help his yaya prepare the merienda they need to sell today.
