Yesterday, we were invited by the Buensalidas to the Taal Lake Yatch Club for some water sports.
|Angela, Marita & Rolly, Matthew, Jasmin & Andrew.
They live really close by, and their girls are the same age & temperament as my ate! ;)
I see a potential friendship brewing! <3
They used to have a resort & still have all the water playthings such as the speed boat, banana boat & tube thingamajig. How cool is that? Naturally, we were just so delighted to accept! <3
Got up at an ungodly hour (hehe) so we can get there early. 5 cars convoying, 5 excited families ready for a great day of fun! I’m loving my hunny’s tennis buds more & more! :)
|Beautiful background view of Taal. Too bad this picture doesn’t do it justice!|
|Half of the contingents.. the lazy ones who didn’t have to bring down stuff haha! ;)|
|Dressed, ready & so eager to go!!!
Yesssss.. I brought their own life vests hehe. We had 3 maletas with us! ;))
That’s how scared I am of the big blue
|Over-capacitated boat, hahaha! ;P|
|Aboard the banana boat the 2nd round!|
|Of course I also wanted to try the speedboat.. ala “My Neighbors Wife“???|
|The junior & the senior chinks.. My hunks! ;)|
|The kids played a game of GUESStures as we waited for the boat to cool down haha.
Good thing tita Tasha came prepared! <3
|Finally!!! A new 500 peso bill with Ninoy & Cory from tita Marita.
Awww, they’re finally together!!! <3
|The kids continued to play as the oldies finished their lunch..
Can I just say? I’m so glad for new friends!!!
We are so looking forward to more adventures with this fun group. <3
|Hearty lunch of ihaw-ihaw made us NOT WANT to leave the table hahaha! ;P|
|Finally satiated, the oldies decided to try the banana boat as well.|
|After my scary experience, I stayed away from ANYTHING that had to do with water
(except for the shower which I hit immediately so I can get a relaxing massage)
The kids however, had a different thing in mind! @_@
Look at my daring babyson on a tube!!!
|Ate also gives it a try!!! @_@
I almost had a heart attack because of these 2!!!
|After having had ALL their turns.. and fill.. the kids use the rest of their energy swimming in the lake.|
Soon, it was dark & our day has come to an end. :( We had a sumptuous dinner of sinigang na baboy, which I wasn’t able to take a picture of in the chaos of the showering, packing, car-loading & eating, hahaha!
The kids didn’t want our day to end yet, so we had dessert at Cinnabon..
|What’s left of the girls (the rest were sleeping in their respective cars already, haha!)|
|What’s left of the boys (same predicament)! ;)
Matira ang matibay!!! m/
|I heart Cinnabon!!! Heart, heart, heart!!! <3|
|The happy group, which already made plans for a lunch & movie hang-out the next day!!!
(well, the teens, at least!)
|The same CARVERY group..
With Rolly & Marita cuddling on the backmost! <3
Thank you so very much to the entire Buensalida family for such a wonderful family bonding activity. Yes, we did go home “injured” (everyone -except the Buensalida couple, in this photo had sore shoulders, groins & backs, my hunny snapped/pulled a thigh muscle haha!), we would never trade this experience for any other day at lazing home!
Best of all, the kids made new friends which I hope they get to keep for the years to come! <3
PS- Too bad the kids weren’t able to take a picture of me & my hunny walking hand-in-hand towards the coffee shop. That would have been such a funny sight! Me with my head at a peculiar angle because of my stiff neck & sore shoulder. My hunny limping because of his pulled thigh muscle, with tissue paper sticking out of his left ear because it wouldn’t stop leaking lake water! OMG I promise you, you would have rolled on the floor laughing!!! ;))
Until my next post, people!!! :-*
