Viaje Del Sol: Sitio De Amor

Continuation of my vacation in the Philippines

Day after my homecoming, we went to Sitio De Amor to celebrate Zimon's birthday. He is my third grandchild. Although it was only 18 degrees and it was raining that day, it didn't stop us. We already paid for the trip to the resort, so better enjoy the day no matter what.

Sitio De Amor is almost one hour drive from Victoria Laguna where my mother lives.


As yo can see, it was raining that day. It was cold so everyone had a jacket.
We were on the way to a tree house which we rented for the day.


The tree house. It was big enough for all of us. 

We passed by the swimming pool, but no one was tempted to swim.



The kids tried the water and it was too cold for them too.



The place has a lagoon too. 


My grandkids couldnt resist anymore. They just have to play in the water rain or shine.


But, the water was really cold, so they ended up in the bathtub.



We were satisfied though with the place. Clean and quiet. Well, we were the only visitors:)


This is the main house where they served all the meals



Green plants and trees everywhere


Balm for the soul

Lots of flowers too


Our lunch

The hungry guests

My youngest grandchild Aerith tasting the soup.


Or else, we just rested in the tree house.

Later that day. we sung birthday song to Zimon and everybody had fun!



We brought with us chocolate cake!


Thanks God for the opportunity to be with my family there. Precious moments.


Will be sharing more next post.

  7. I always hate a really cold pool, which happens often when seasons change. Warm enough to be outside but chilly in the water.

  20. What a blessing to enjoy the birthday celebration with your Grandson and family. Your photos are lovely and even with all the rain, you chose to have a great time. Why let a bit of rain spoil the fun?

  21. Joy,what beautiful pictures! And, I love the look of your blog. When I saw the heading at the top of the page, a joyful tear began to drop out of the corner of my eye. When I saw the words "Take joy my King, in what you hear. Make me a sweet sound in your ears.", the song immediately came alive in my brain. Ah, sweet memories of praising the Lord. I cannot wait to read more of your blog. Your sister in Christ, Deborah
