Two gloriously sweet, albeit short, vacation days were all I needed to get energized. My energy source was not pennsylvania energy but the Horseshoe Bay Resort. Snagging that great Easter hotel deal proved to be a smart decision. It was so much fun just lounging around doing absolutely nothing, except to watch my little girl have her own dose of energizing fun in the resort pools. I just love spending quality time with my family. I am already looking forward to our next family bonding time in and out of town.

My daughter and I go on a lot of impromptu dates. They’re not very elaborate, really. This summer, we went to the community pool a couple of times, just she and I. Sometimes we’re at McDonald’s. Other times we’re at the neighborhood yogurt shoppe. Sometimes, we’re at Quiznos (the way to go if you want to how to lose weight fast). I really do believe parents should spend some time with their kids in a special way. But you know that already.

My daughter and I went on an impromptu date, just the two of us, last Tuesday. We watched Despicable Me at the Gold Class Cinemas as a post birthday treat for me. Birthday celebrants get to have buy-one, get-one movie tickets, 3 days before or 3 days after their birthday between Monday and Thursday at the Gold Class Cinemas. We took advantage of that deal plus the fact that on Tuesdays, theater chow are at a discount.
We enjoyed the movie, but I personally like Toy Story 3 more.
After the movies, my girl and I went window shopping for a while, until I snagged a very attractively priced pair of shoes. *winnk* I love the Domain 2, because believe it or not, the shops there have stuff people can actually afford. Some shops even have blac label clothing.
Til’ our next girls’ day out, Cheers!

learning to ride a bike. My 5-year old little girl reached another milestone when she learned to ride a bike (without training wheels!) last month.
The hard work she and her dad have put into their afternoon practices have definitely paid off. I am so proud of my daughter who never ceases to amaze me. I knew somehow that she will learn to ride a bike this summer. And I was right. My little girl is growing up too fast! When she hits her teenage years, I hope she won’t have the need for best acne products, flawless that is right now. I shouldn’t really worry about those things just yet. For now, I will continue enjoying being my daughter’s best friend and number 1 fan.

Now more than ever, we try to go on family playdates outdoors as often as we can. We usually go to the nearby sports park where hubby and I can run safely while our 5-year old daughter rides her bike.
The highlight of these outdoor playdates, as far as my daughter is concerned, is the time she gets to play in the playscape. Experts say that children should have at least an hour of active play time, which is exercise in disguise. This early, we’re already teaching our daughter the importance of exercise and healthy eating. Hopefully, when she’s older, she wouldn’t have to look for effective abs workout dvds (which I’m always guilty of!) as she will already have a healthy and fit body.Newer Posts »
