Summer activities for the whole family

There are a hundred and one activities the whole family can enjoy this summer. If you love outdoor activities, you can go camping, biking, swimming, wall climbing, or fishing. Nature tripping is a good time for bonding and re-connecting with family members especially if both parents are busy working everyday. If your kids are old enough to ride a bike, you can go biking with them. La Mesa Eco Park in Quezon City is the only place I know where you can enjoy the beauty and bounty of nature without leaving the city. If you prefer biking with the kids, you can go straight to La Mesa Eco Park with your bike. But it’s convenient if you have a vehicle with thule bike rack. There are bike rentals if you don’t want to bring your bike. Outdoor activities are rewarding in terms of creating memories with your loved ones and beneficial to ones health. Biking is one of the best stress-relievers and best way to stay healthy if I may add.

Looking forward to exciting summer activities

I’ve asked my kids what they want to do this summer. And these are their answers.

Khalil: 
Camping
Naomi:  
I want to learn more about art and stuff

Khalil wants to try outdoor activities this summer. Definitely it’s anything but sports. I remember enrolling him to Taekwondo classes three summers ago, but quit before he could even learn the basic steps. Sayang binayad namin. Swimming lessons are quite expensive so we might just plan to go swimming this summer. And Daddy will be his mentor. 🙂

Naomi, on the hand, is interested to attend art classes and writing activities in UP. I have yet to inquire from the university. If Khalil will be interested to join his sister, we might enrol him to the same class for younger students.

We intend to make this summer memorable for our kids. They are growing up fast so we need more bonding time with them. We are planning to go nature tripping. The nearest place where we can go to is La Mesa Dam Ecopark, which is only a few kilometres away from our place. We can do so many activities there such as hiking, biking and swimming for a limited fee. Sounds exciting right?

We can’t wait for school to end this month. We are looking forward to a great summer vacation without hurting our pockets lol.

How about you? What are your plans with your family this summer? I want to hear from you.
