Since we try to avoid going to the mall for now unless necessary, the fambam decided to spend last Saturday at UP. Sofi and Isha had fun running around outdoor. Iba pa din ang pasyal na fresh ang hangin, and just be with nature. Nakakasad that we don't have much park here in Metro Manila. Though I have nothing against indoor playground, pero kahit kaming rentals may benefit in letting our kids play outside.
How I wish we can have more parks. Pero dahil developing country tayo napalitan na ng mga pataasang building and condo. Anyway, I'm just glad we live near UP (around 30 minutes drive) kaya we sometimes bring the girls there para maiba naman ang scenery.
I'm just glad that hubby and I are on the same page on how we want to spend time with our family. It doesn't have to be extravagant or magastos. A simple walk in the park (ginawang park na namin yung UP, haha!), eating sa foodcourr, strolling, as long na magkakasana kami and spending time with our girls, sapat na sa amin yun.
We really value our time together especially andali kasi tayong madistract ng gadgets, games, movies. Though we watch movies, play games and use gadgets, we see to it na we give time to spend quality time by updating each other. Since daddy and Sofi only catch-up on weekends, as much as possible naglalaan talaga kami ng time na Saturday is our Family Day. We ask Sofi sa mga activities nya sa school, kung may crush ba sya (kalma lang kami dahil wala pa daw. Haha!), we also teach Isha some colors, words, singing songs to her.
Of course there's no.walk in the park without pictures. Project ko talaga this year makapag print ng mga pictures and malagay sa album.
Why do you think it's important to have family day? Kasi we're building foundation with our kids. We're creating memories na babalikan nila when they have their own family. Madali kasing maging busy ang mga rentals esp.if working tapos weekends na lang nakakapagrest. Kaya it's really an effort to make time foe our fambam. But as the saying goes: To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.
May batang masaya!
How do you spend your family day? Always remember na we don't need spend too much (unless you have extra and budget for it) to make memories with our family.
