mommy moments - a summer to remember

summer has officially arrived + am just excited since this is jared's official first summer {he was a tad smaller last year that we didn't really get to enjoy most of the summer out, plus mum was busy working back then, too :(}, here's what i have in mind:
  • a summer outing which can be in a resort nearby or a beach nearest to us (still in the works though, but will definitely push through before this summer is officially over)
  • of course, even if my son is not yet schooling, summer is also a great time to line up other activities like  having a haircut for the little man since his tufts have grown a lot in the last 3 months + he badly needs one! (i tried cutting off a little of his bangs, to prevent his hair from falling into his eyes, as a safety precaution)
  • am contemplating on enrolling my son in swimming lessons too, i personally do not know how to swim + i'd love for my son to learn in an early age. plus i've read about the benefits of swimming for babies' health + brain development + am definitely for it! found a school a few minutes away + is on the process of inquiring about it.
  • will be having a fruit party come holy week (when everyone is at home), we plan to stock up on what's-in- season fruits. i can't wait to see jared devour a mango, see, he loves the juice version to bits + am sure he will definitely like the real thing too. apart from mangoes, we plan to include singkamas (jimaca), probably a bit of watermelon too (that's isabel's fave), and maybe i can mix up some lemonade while we're at it (anything to beat the scorching summer heat, really!)
  • +, yep, a pool party at home is also in the works. it has actually taken us awhile to fix up the inflateable pool since my niece + nephew had fallen ill the past weeks (now sean is down with chickenpox!), so we are just waiting till they can participate, to make the party all the more enjoyable.
  • we will also be going to a book event next week (i'll be writing about that on a separate post)
  • + definitely a lot of outdoors time (so that means a lot of time away from this blog too!)
haven't got a summer photo, yet, to share, so how about this one taken outdoors?

that's about it with our summer plans, hopefully i can also include flying a kite or going on a picnic or visiting a zoo on the list, but i guess you'll never know, summer is still young + it is teeming with endless possibilities.

here's to one summer to remember!
