Our final venture for the month was at Mommy Diaries. Ivan playing at the lobby while I am attending a parenting seminar. One thing I like with events like this are the free parenting seminars. Sometimes they will give you freebies as well. My entrance ticket was courtesy of Groupon. I also won a 1-month membership to Curves which I don't know what to do yet.
Ivan is having his glitter tattoo. He selected a fish design.
Next stop was at BGC for the Giant Balloon Sculpture Parade
Next month or in 2-weeks time Ivan will began semi-formal schooling (nursery level) and I am thinking of staying home most of the time (?) do you think we can do that? because we need to concentrate on his studies but I think he will surely miss our escapades. Ha!ha! just yesterday I received an email regarding the GC I won from mamskiddiefunland . . . hmmm . . . we'll reserve that for Ivan's birthday. Maybe we can tag along ate Ymanne and baby JM.
I won an entrance ticket to this event courtesy of Ms. Ro of Animetrics World so I have decided to head at the NBC tent. Truly there were lots and lots of must try food samples. Ivan prefers more of the ice cream and the gelatos. I think we were not even able to visit all the booths because he's also busy running around which I hated so much because I end up always getting after him. I am just afraid he'll get lost in the pool of people. We didn't had any picture because I lost my camera battery :(
Walking around with Ms. Gladys Reyes. I am envy with my son because he's always within her reach.
Ivan is afraid of mascots but he loves watching them from a distance. Enjoying a dance number with the Ainon mascot.
Had so much fun at the Gymboree booth playing with other kids.
The host gave some bubble treat which the kids truly enjoyed as well.
Enjoying interactive story-telling time at the Make Believe booth.
But I don't think I enjoyed this fair, other than the venue was a bit far, it was kinda boring for me because there were no simultaneous on-stage program. The booth/exhibitors were not of my interest as well. Anyway, Ivan had a great time playing at Gymboree I think, and the story telling was something new for him.
Had a great time this summer because there were activities for us every week end.
MAY 7: This is our third straight year attending ExpoMom. Every year it was a delight and one of the events I am always looking forward to. Too bad though, Ivan was not able to play at the Funranch inflatables. It was not set up yet. The photo booth was not working as well so we were not bale to have our souvenir pix.
Went to another event at Megamall, Joyful Parenting sponsored by Philips Avent. I need to be there to listen to their speakers and pick-up my prize. Its a reward from being the very first active participant of their Facebook discussion board.
Finally a picture together with Ms. George. Met her at various events, I think she's one of those in-demand event host because she's really good at it.
