a colorful playdate

play, kidsabout 2 wednesdays ago, mum, dad + i, together with my tita cecille + tito ken were headed manila-bound. my tito + tita are watching harry potter + the deathly hallows at sm megamall (mum won 2 tickets for a block screening from clubzed {smart}) whilst mum + dad will be heading to that tribute party for her fave band, incubus (trivia: i was supposed to be named after the lead vocals of this group but dad has another idea, so i was named after another band’s vocalist + unintentionally, after a famous actor which coincidentally happens to be my mum’s fave, too :))

kids, playmum had a brilliant plan of tagging me along, but, since i am way too little to watch the last installment of the potter series on the big screen (i get scared with voldemort loads of times you see + mum is worried i’d be traumatized when i see him larger than life in his 3d glory!), + since we also won a gc from activefun (from mum’s fave parenting mag, smart parenting) that entitles us to an unlimited time of playing, we played in activefun for hours whilst waiting for my tito + tita to finish watching the film, who will then bring me home as my parents head to the tribute party in makati.

play, kids, activefunit was a good plan indeed + everyone agreed with it. of course, i totally enjoyed being part of the plan as i really get to have loads of fun whenever we visit this play area. it was actually my third time to visit + i did not enjoy the place less. i know mum enjoyed it too, she totally liked having a go at the slide. we went together since i am a tad small to go on my own just yet.

play, kidsmum + i headed to the trampoline first (with mum much more excited than me). we never got to try this in our first 2 visits + now is the best time to sample this treat, especially there is no one else around (read: older + bigger kid who might trampled me over! :D). i tried bouncing up + down while mum bounced in her place while seated. it was fun but i guess i’ll enjoy this part a lot better when i am a bit bigger!

play, kidsi also tried the blocks (of course i tried throwing all the blue things all over the place:D) + mum tried shooting some balls into the hoop while i watched. after that we head on to the area of the place meant for little tots like me. this is where the sea of colorful balls are located, as well as the slide where mum + i played a bit as well + this cool area on top which looks a lot like a sailboat’s deck. i had a blast trying the steering wheel + pretended to be a sailor!

play, kids

i also sampled the colorful piano mounted on the wall. i just love the music it makes while i press on the keys. i also tried the huge floor piano, it was very big i had to take a lot of steps before i was able to reach the other end. the keys lit up, aside from giving off a beautiful sound, while i step on them. fun!

it was one enjoyable day, i would love to go there over again.  it was only too bad mum never got to go to the party but dad bought front row tickets to the concert so i guess she is more than happy with that ;D
