Gift of An Ordinary Weekend #8

One of my goals this year is to have a Gift of An Ordinary Weekend post every month. I think that would give Aki a clear picture in the future on what we do on our family days (in our house, we call weekends family days and weekdays as office/school days)

Here is a delayed post on a fun February Saturday. It was actually a long weekend since Franco and I were both on leave the day before. However, there is nothing ordinary about the Friday and Sunday of that weekend since we went to 2 wakes.  I will just document what happened that Saturday, February 22.

Around 8AM
Aki got his dino surprise

Sometime past 9AM (I don’t have the exact time because I did not set the date and time in my camera correctly)
After tinkering in our garden, we went inside to rest. Aki thought Ate was playing with him when she was cleaning the windows

Daddy left for his jujitsu training.

Dressed Aki in his Mickey apron and toque (thanks Mae and Kuya for the gift)

Aki: I’m a chef boy!!

We cooked adobong kangkong which Aki did not eat.  I was really hoping that getting him involved in the prep and actual cooking would make him want to try the dish. Hmmp!
While waiting for daddy, we made fossils

Finally, daddy is home. but before he went inside the house, Aki wanted to surprise him

Vraaaaggh! , said the dinos.

Sweet daddy played along and pretended he got the  shock of his life.

Had lunch. Franco did not eat my adobong kangkong either.

And rested in the room. We watched a movie but I can’t remember what it was.

Then it was time to go to BGC for Sophie’s party! But before going, we had to give in to Aki’s request to eat cake in Red Ribbon.

Sophie’s party was super fun. It was a reunion party for our n@wie community and for our mommy bloggers group.

Here is the self portait of Maia of her and Aki. Cute!

And even if he never wins, I love seeing Aki participate in the party games.

Thank you so much, Sieggy for inviting us!

We thought of dropping by this new park in BGC but it was already getting late. Aki as expected was knocked out as soon as we got into the van.

Finally, I have uninterrupted quality time with the hubby. We spent the rest of the day watching our favorite teeny bopper series, Awkard Season 1.

Thank you Lord for the gift of ordinary weekends.
