It's the twins 2nd birthday and they woke up to their favorite things - balloons, CARS activity books, and breakfast delivery from Jollibee, hehe. They love Jollibee mascot and they call him Bobby. They also received a Red Ribbon cake from my parents.
We planned to make the most out of this day as a family, coz we rarely get to do that with our tight schedules. So, after taking their siesta, we left the house at 3PM and picked-up their Lightning Mcqueen cakes from Shoppersville in Katipunan.
Then, we went to Mega Plaza in Ortigas for their first dental check-up. I know, they should have taken this a long time ago, but its difficult to take the twins to the barber without putting up a fight, what more the dentist? Our dental appointment was at 4pm, and we were late. While we were walking through the corridors, the twins were already crying, and when I opened the clinic door, they were screaming. OMG! I had no other choice but to retreat. I told the secretary - sorry I have to cancel, they might get traumatized, next time na lang ha, hehe. So we went down and as soon as the elevator opened to the lobby, we heard the twins laugh in between sobs. As in sigh of relief, bwahaha. tsk tsk tsk.
We went to Galleria and had snacks in Cerealicious. I ordered robopop (cornflakes, banana, nestle pops and strawberry syrup), and we ordered chocolate oatmeal for the twins. They liked my food better, so we swapped.. sayang masarap pa naman, hahaha.
At this point, my in-laws arrived and we went to the department store because their lola wanted to buy them new clothes. She got them jackets and t-shirt/short sets from Mickey Mouse, another one of their favorites.
Then, we went to Tom's World at the 3rd floor for some vroom vroom action. We always go to this area because not so many kids play at this side of the mall. The twins love the yellow and red cars, and they always ride these whenever we are in Galleria. Today, they tried the mini-carousel, boat, drums and throwed hoops at the basketball shooting arcade. I was so proud when Carlos was able to shoot one ball, ring-less, hahaha.
After that one hour of playing, we went to Edsa Shrine to offer a prayer of thanks. Then, we headed to Congo Grille in El Pueblo Real de Manila for our family dinner.
The twins with their uncle Gelo, 3 years old.
Congo Grille was our first choice for the birthday dinner because of their location and affordability. We rented out the function room, which can accommodate 50 pax. We were only about 20 people, so we had a lot of space. Food was yummy, service was the best. Our over-all experience with them was good. We were happy to choose Congo Grille. At 9:30pm, we decided to call it a night.
Happy Birthday Kuya Vito! :)
Happy Birthday Carlos! :)
Welcome to the terrible twos, hehe.
