After having breakfast, we all got ready for a big "pasyal" day ahead of us. While waiting for the others, Alvin, Anika and I (with Jekjek) went down for the free pony rides care of Hotel Elizabeth. This will be the first time ever that Anika will see a live horse and ride one =)
Our baby's outfit of the day:
|Long sleeved princess tee from Baby Zara, denim skirt from Baby Zara, pink Havaianas|
My outfit of the day:
|Mango white sando, denim shorts from Forever 21, blue sweater from the NOEL bazaar and fitflops|
But eventually warmed up to Tanzan, the horse. Si Nanay na ngayon ang scared because she kept pinching the horse's ears...
... and then kept on trying to touch its face...
... then poked its nose! Kaloka grabe! Kita niyo my grip sa jacket ni Anika? I was super scared! Haha!
Alvin's artistic shot of the horse boys:
Since I'm afraid of the horse, Alvin was the one who accompanied Anika while she rode her horse. We changed Anika into her leggings before we made her ride it.
Ang Nanay naman nagkapagexercise because I had to run a few meters before them so that I could take these photos:
|Look at Anika. She does this everytime there's sun or light in her eyes! =)|
I was panting so bad by this time but still managed to smile for the camera =D
Here are the keepsake photos to document our baby's first ever horse ride:
|Alvin forced me to have a photo with Anika and the horse. See the frozen smile on my face?|
|"Nanay, don't be scared. Tanzan is harmless!"|
|Can you see me?! Lol!|
|"Nanay! I'm so having so much fun! Don't be scared ayt?"|
Anyways, Papa and my youngest brother, Noel, went down to take photos of Anika and her horse too! =)
|Here we are in front of Hotel Elizabeth|
I commend Hotel Elizabeth for preparing activities for the kids like this for the holidays. They also had kids' movies being shown the whole day at the lobby and face painting and gingerbread decorating activities in the afternoon!
Thanks for reading guys! Only an hour left and the year 2012 will be here already! =)
Happy new year to all of you!
