Summer Activities

For the past couple of years, our family haven't had any major summer activities even for the kids. We were happy being homebound with a few visits to the mall every now and then. We were okay staying at home, playing with the kids, watching our favorite local channels, liking every FB posts of our friends' bikini body and drinking a can of beer during some sleepless nights. I can't even remember the last time we went swimming. Oh well, we have gone to the beach whenever we're at the hubby's hometown because it's basically a walk away from the in-laws' place but it doesn't equate to "summer" for me. The kids don't seem to mind but I know I am somehow depriving them the fun. So this year, I promised my kids a fun-filled summer.

McDonald's Kiddie Crew
Just like last year, Angela had a mini vacation in Bicol with my side of family. Since my mother has some things to do too, I asked her to look for an activity that will make Ate busy while she's out. And then I found out about McDonalds Kiddie Crew Workshop.

The McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop is a 5-day summer program specially designed for kids ages 6-12 years old. During each workshop day, Kiddie Crew members will get to experience on-floor training like greeting customers and assisting the crew at the drive-thru and front counters; showcase their skills through creative art workshops; and learn the importance if hard work, discipline and teamwork, through values formative lessons.
At the end of the workshop, a series of graduation are held in major cities all over the country to recognize the achievements of all Kiddie Crew members and their families by treating them to a day filled with exciting booths, games and a ton of prizes.  -- taken at https://mcdonalds.com.ph

Registration fee was Php 595 but it was worth it. It includes shirt, cap, bag, artwork materials and meals for the whole workshop. Angela had a lot of fun! I may not be there to witness everything but I heard her scream with excitement everytime I called her up. 

As early as March, I booked our first-to-be family outing to Boracay on the last week of May. And yes, I am beyond excited! It is going to be Little Girl's first plane ride and my first with Air Asia. I haven't booked our hotel yet but after some thorough research and inquiries, I have my eye on LSM Square Hotel in Station 1. I am just waiting for their confirmation and hopefully could tick it off my list soon. I am planning to give you guys a heads up on some hotels I have called and checked if you have future plans of visiting Boracay, too. Let me just gathered my notes and I'll write about it. Or is it too late for this? Well, maybe some of you have not been to the beach yet just like us. ;)

If you also want to check the hotel, visit:

And since summer ain't over yet, I'm still searching for other summer activities near out place. Voice/dance workshops for Ate perhaps? 


If you know a cheaper and better hotel, let me know please. Thanks thanks! :)
