Family Outing @ Amana Waterpark in Bulacan (Mommy and Me Mondays #13, Mellow Yellow #12, Ruby Tuesday #13, Watery Wednesday)

We just had a great time this past weekend! Since summer is officially here, what's the best way to welcome it? SWIMMING!!!Last Sunday, the company-family outing my husband was busy putting together came to reality. M was on top of everything just to make sure we will enjoy ourselves at the Amana Waterpark in Pandi, Bulacan, PI.As early as 5 in the morning, he was on his feet preparing the food we will be bringing not just for the family but for his office mates and their families as well. When I woke up at about 6 a.m. he was already cooking the pasta noodles and already set the turbo ready for me to lodge in the marinated chicken. While in between cooking, he made sure that everything else were all set.Right after everything was cooked, we went off for a fun-filled day ahead of us. Amana Waterpark in Pandi, Bulacan is a little over an hour drive from Quezon City via the newly constructed C6 road connecting Quezon City to the North Expressway.Leon who was too excited about the idea of swimming kept on asking us if we were already near. Maia on the other hand slept almost all throughout the trip.

Amana Waterpark is a nice place to spend for a family o
uting. Although they are still developing the resort, there are already 4 pools where you can dip in to cool off the summer heat. From the main entrance where you have to pay an entrance fee, you still have to drive through (or walk) a distance of about 500 meters to the entrance of the resort proper.

Entrance fees
costs P250 or $5.75 for adults and P200 or $4.60 for kids under 4 feet. Babies are free of charge. Cottage rent ranges from P600.00 to P2,500 or $13.80 to $57.52 depending on your choice of cottage.

The resort's landscape is filled with life-size characters of the Justice League, Spider Man a
nd Sand Man, Shrek's Ogre family, Lord of the Rings characters, Madagascar character animals, King Kong and Dragon Ball Z, to name a few. Definitely a fun-filled day for the kids who will not just enjoy the pools but also the surroundings.Once set in our cottage, Leon can't help but want to swim. Maia though was hesitant at first because of the many people she sees, but once wet, she enjoyed the water too. Leon loved the kiddie pool, he walked around the pool without any fear because the height of the pool and water was just right for him. The deepest area of the kiddie pool reaches only up to Leon's neck part. While Maia enjoyed the wave pool! Guided by either me, her dad or her yaya, she walks around the shallow part and when she sees the wave coming, she'll retract in a hurry to the surface, having fun running away from the waves.

Here are photos to show how great the day was for us...

Leon simply loved the water fountain/shower

And since it's only the beginning of summer, I know there are still some activities in tow for the family to look forward to :D
