Our family's 3-year-old rugrat, Pakoy, was not only able to experience his first plane ride during my Philippines 2011 vacation, but also his first boat ride when we went to Boracay.  The experience of traveling by air and by sea was altogether new to him so I could sense that he was just as curious as any young boy could be.  During the boat ride, I took the chance to give him a bit of a science lesson with regards to marine animals and told him that if he sees the ocean is blue, it means that the water is deep.  He had a taste of the salty seawater for the first time when at one point we got splashed on by small waves during the short boat ride.  When he realized that the sea is not the same as his previous swimming pool fun times, he requested that we not swim in the beach.  Coming from a little boy who once, without hesitation, jumped into a 4-foot deep swimming pool, I could tell that he got a tad scared of the water.

Do you think Pakoy kept himself away from the beach when we got to Boracay?  Or was he able to overcome the deep, blue sea?  Stay tuned to find out the answers, and to know more of my vacation stories!  Until my next post, ciao for now :)

  8. Sigurado ako sobrang memorable ng lahat ng masasayang firsts sa life ni Pakoy kasi kasama nya mga taong nagmamahal sa kanya...

    Excited naman ako sa sagot sa mga questions mo sis... Hula ako pwde? Nag enjoy din si Pakoy sa tubig at sa tingin ko swimming to the max si Pakoy-koy! Hehe

  9. Ako din KM, same with Rovie...hula ko hindi na nag alangan si Pakoy after seeing the beach at nag enjoy sya ng husto sa paglalaro at paliligo...of course with Tita Mae's company.

    My daughter is getting better now although need nya to recover her weight and strenght. Pumayat sya ng todo.

    Visiting for PF! Hope you can visit mine too..

  13. thanks for visiting Pakoy :D

  14. I would guess that Pakoy had a blast with the seawater! He he he. At least, that's what happened to my daughter on her first sea/ocean experience. She got scared why the seawater was salty and thought it wouldn't be good to swim or dip in there. But then, after she enjoyed the sun, it became so hard na to get her to stop playing in the sand and on the ocean! ;-)

    Late PF visit! And yes, I saw your pink backpack! :)
