Out + About: Instant Weekend Playdate

We do not go out on playdates that often because most of my mum’s friends with kids live far. I seldom see them and mostly on special occasions, like birthdays and the likes. That is why I am really very excited when my classmate, Anthony, and I had an instant playdate today!

It was his baby brother’s christening and while everyone was busy feasting on the yummy food his family prepared for the guests, we were busy playing with his Nerf guns on the street. Mum had to accompany us because I, for one, is not really used to playing outside.

It was awesome to play and spend time outdoors! We surely enjoyed playing together on the streets, good thing there weren’t too many cars out that day.

We are excited to play together again soon and I will ask mum when we can visit my classmate’s place for another playdate! They live quite near our place so I am guessing it will be soon.

What’s your favorite game to do for playdates and when was the last time you did?

another playdate with my cousins

playtime, playdate, family, cousins, weekend, out + about, weekend

last sunday, my cousins + i went out for a playdate. we were supposed to go to activefun in sm north, where mum bought them unlimited playtime vouchers as christmas presents but plans were changed suddenly + we ended up going to the mall instead. so off we went to the nearest mall to our location, sm marilao.

even when we did not get to play non-stop in activefun, we still had a wonderful time together at the mall. our first stop ~ the arcade! we play this cool game where you have to hit animals, insects + other objects with little balls. of course, i cannot hit much since my little arms can only reach up to a certain point in the monitor, it was kuya sean + ateย shane, who played mostly. but we all enjoyed this game, in fact, we went to play it one more time after our first round of tokens where used up + mum + tita cecille had to buy more! ๐Ÿ˜€

we also tried playing other games in the arcade, including my favorite, basketball, + a whole bunch of other slot machines where you’d get a gazillion of those tiny tickets when you hit the jackpot. you can exchange them with fun items from the counter once you reached a certain number of points.

after we used up all our tokens we transfer to this other arcade where they have different rides + games, too! ate shane got this cute angry birds plushy in one of the games.ย we all rode all the rides available there + when we got tired, we asked mum if we can ride those little motorcycles-for-rent. we had such a great time + we all enjoyed playing all the cool games + riding all the great rides! ๐Ÿ˜€

we capped the day by having a hearty meal in one of our favorite fast food.ย we sure had a wonderful time playing together + i really wish we can do this more often! ๐Ÿ˜€

we went to the big slide over + over, we swam with loads of colorful swimballs and played to our little hearts’ content. our mums also thought we were big enough to play on our own so they ย pretty much left us to ourselves while they chat away the afternoon in one corner of the play area while they keep an eye on us.

we are roaming all over the play ground and explored one part of it after another. we climbed colorful stairs after another + threw balls all around, too! when we were all tired + sweaty {in my case, at least}, we find this quite corner of the play area to sit + play with interactive toys.

another fun day at activefun

active fun, weekend

mum + i {dad followed after he got off from work} had a chance to go to activefun one more time, mum was attending an event that day + i tagged along so i can play a bit while she waited for the event to start.

as always, i am very excited to play in this place, with loads of colorful balls + toys + a lot of kids playing, laughing, giggling + having fun, too! they all made the place a funner place to be.

our first stop is the sea of balls, this is one of my favorite spots here. mum managed to snap some photos while making sure i am safely playing on the side, away from bigger kids that might squash me when they collapsed on the balls ๐Ÿ™‚

i really enjoyed diving into the balls + lying around in the sea of these colorful round creations. + i know that a lot of other kids feel the same way.

my playtime was cut short when we had to go out to check whether mum’s event has started, it was a good thing dad arrived shortly after that, while mum busied herself learning about mum stuffs, dad + i had tons of fun jumping up + down in the trampoline + exploring other parts of the play area. too bad, we were not able to take photos, mum brought the camera with her, see.

i was all sweaty + tired after our play, not to mention hungry, but it was all good. i had a great time sharing a colorful weekend playtime with mummy + daddy!
