Mommy Moments - Park Day

My first Mommy Moments's theme is Day at the Park.

For us, a day at the park is better than strolling in malls. The greens of nature is far better than the cement and glass structures of malls. We being lovers of nature would want to instill to our children as early as possible our advocacy for the environment. Spending time in parks is a good start for toddlers.

Although we have parks in the area where we reside, we often go to the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. The campus is wide enough for us to jog around as well as for our toddler to release his excess energies.

In December of 2008, we went to Bonifacio High Street when it was still relatively new. What's great here is that the management of the mall sets up various interactive displays which caters to children.Leon trying out the giant phone line

Also in Quezon City is the Ninoy Aquino Parks & Wildlife. Here's where Haribon hold's its annual Million Hectare Walk in support of their project of forest restoration. It was during one of its event that our son won his first award...The Youngest Walker award.
