Easter Fun!

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, we had an early holy week getaway that Radley and I experienced an early little easter fun! We stayed at The Manor, Camp John Hay in Baguio and I was just so happy that there’s easter activities for kids! I really wanted to start jumping into the fun activities there but we have our itenerary for the day. So next day, when everybody decided to stay in the hotel after strawberry picking, I said to myself “finally!” I’m just dead excited! When Radley and I were ready, the fog got thicker that we can’t see anything! And later started raining. Oh well not our day again! Radley was really excited and would peek in the window and would smile and point at the activity area which makes me feel bad because I wanted to bring him there but its just out of my control, we just stayed at the hotel too and play!

(sorry for the crappy shot, I just print scrint this in my video because I forgot to take a picture. Haha!)

There’s Ice cream corner, egg painting, candy store, playground, butterfly garden, and more! Entrance Fee: 100PHP per head for kids and 50PHP for adults. On our third day, also our last day at The Manor, Radley and I finally went to the Easter Funland! We weren’t able to enjoy everything because we need to check-out and move to another hotel inside Camp John Hay but he enjoyed even for a little time and thats important! :) So many things we want to do but we have limited time, we took photos instead and its for free! Lol!

here’s our magical ride! Hehe… 50PHP for 15mins. Not bad! Radley loves it! :)

That’s all of our Baguio Easter Fun because Le Monet Hotel didn’t have any activity during our stay. 20th of April Easter Day, we had a simple gathering with Hub’s family at Alabang. Adults played Russian Poker (I’m not included because I look after Radley and chase after him. Lol!), kids had egg hunting in the afternoon! It was a fun and tiring day! :) image

How Do You Handle Your Toddler During Long Drives?

My toddler at 16months is super active! He can’t stay put even for few minutes, he would play all day, dance, and more! Its a challenge for us mommies to keep them calm and happy during long drives where they can’t move around and play!

We had an early Holy Week getaway, from Apr12-16 at Baguio but had a night at Subic.
Radley was easy to manage during the long drive, thank God! What I did? Magic! Hahaha! Kidding! Anyway, I have researched guidelines on how to manage toddlers during long drives/travel and I have my top 5 magic below what works for my little boy. :)

1. Brought his all time favorite snacks!!!
2. Downloaded a movie on my phone (despicable me 1 & 2, turbo)
3. Have his favorite toy (gun and spoon)
4. We had a counting game (he loves it! He counts 1-5)
5. And the most important thing that works like magic is………ME! Haha! Because he’ll nurse until he fell asleep and thats it! Magic! Lol!

I hope you find this helpful mommies! Do you have other ways of handling your toddlers? Share them below, I’d love to know them and might work for Radley next time! :)

This is the last photo of me and mom, before her operation. 

I love you mama, I know you are in a pain-free place now. I’m missing you everyday! 

I don’t know who to call now when I need an expert mommy advice, but I know you’ll guide me through.

Rest in Peace Mama. I love you so much!!!

Healing Prayer

Let us all pray for the healing of Angelita Aranda (my mom) and Jam Vhille Sebastian (my friend).

Dear Lord of Mercy and Father of Comfort,
You are the One I turn to for help in moments of weakness and times of need. I ask you to be with your servant in this illness. Psalm 107:20 says that you send out your Word and heal. So then, please send your healing Word to your servant. In the name of Jesus, drive out all infirmity and sickness from their body.

Dear Lord, I ask you to turn this weakness into strength, suffering into compassion, sorrow into joy, and pain into comfort for others. May your servant trust in your goodness and hope in your faithfulness, even in the middle of this suffering. Let him be filled with patience and joy in your presence as he waits for your healing touch.

Please restore your servant to full health, dear Father. Remove all fear and doubt from their heart by the power of your Holy Spirit, and may you, Lord, be glorified through his life.

As you heal and renew your servant, Lord, may he bless and praise you.

All of this I pray in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
