Making the most out of a day's off from work..

We had the chance of going relaxing, bonding and swimming at a local resort here in Davao City.. I didn't get the chance to snap a photo for you to see but we'll be going back on our twins' birthday, which is on the 27th of June 2005.. by then, I'll be making sure to bring back a snap of the area..

So, anyway, yesterday was a Sunday.. We had long been deciding of spending a day off away from misery, troubles and thinkings, that's why, we had opted to go to the beach..

Our family, a friend's family and a few friends from both sides made the day complete.. It wasn't an expensive day out, yet, we had bonded and enjoyed most of the day without having to think of chores, problems and work..

Our twins', who used to be so scared of the beach, went under the sun all day just to play with the water.. and that's an improvement on their part.. I was grinning and laughing at my two boys when they ran about, swim around and cry in the water..

To which, we went home with burnt skins, red faced and spent.. *grins*..

Nevertheless, it was 1 day of fun and relaxation tied into one..
