Baguio Bliss 2013 (Part 3): Rolling Home

Daddy T left early for some important appointment in Baguio City. N was still asleep and I was busy fixing our stuff in preparation for going home. I felt tired but still very happy. We’re heading home today to Manila.

Daddy wanted to get something for our family waiting in Manila. We left our foster parents’ house at 10AM and drove to the Good Shepherd Convent in Gibraltar to get our favorite Ube Jam.

Since we were already at the vicinity of the Minesview Park, we decided to take Noa there for a quick stroll.

These bunch of colorful monkey plushies caught our daughter’s attention. She’s touching them one by one. As a mom, it was also a good opportunity to teach counting and the different colors! Thank goodness, N did not insist on buying these toy monkeys. πŸ™‚

Upon entering the Minesview Park, this cute Saint Bernard named Doglas would greet you right on the entrance. I think it’s not easy to pass by this dog’s charm so we ended up paying Php25.00 ($.60) for a photo op with him. It’s also good to realize that our daughter isn’t scared of dogs and we successfully had a shot with Doglas. The owner said that Doglas now weighs 85 kilograms. Can you imagine how much food can he take per meal?

After we’ve satisfied ourselves with photos and street foods like kikiam (for my husband) and buttered corn with cheese powder (for me), it’s now time to prepare for a long drive home. Daddy T’s busy fixing our stuff at around 4PM. We’re going to take the Kennon Road this time to cut short our travel time.

The sky was still clear and light when we reached this famous Baguio City landmark. We couldn’t help ourselves but get off the car and make new memories.

Even if a lot of spoken words are still absent, I know in my heart that my daughter had a blast. Seeing my daughter and my husband happy mean the world to me. It was indeed a blissful family time in Baguio City that I will forever keep in my heart.

We arrived home safely by the grace of God. It was very tiring but definitely worth it. As of writing, Daddy T’s vacation hasn’t ended yet and I’m grateful for every single time that he is with us.

My family is not perfect, but who is? We are a bunch of erring individuals but we are trying our best to see beyond these imperfections and focus on the bond of blood and love that glue our souls together.

I have an imperfect happy family. That makes all the difference.
