Fun Day at the Sta. Elena Fun Farm

Planning for a last summer hurrah for your restless kiddos? You might want to consider visiting the Fun Farm at Sta. Elena in Cabuyao, Laguna.

When I learned that my daughter’s school included Sta. Elena Fun Farm in their educational field trip itinerary, I immediately signed her up.

I wanted Cesca to breathe some fresh air and experience something different from our usual weekend mall outings. It’s always been a concern for me that children nowadays are glued to their tablets, not really mobile and active.

Mommy Travels: Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa, Antipolo

This is the second part of our Antipolo day trip last May. Picture heavy post ahead 🙂

After spending the first part of the day being all arsty-farsty in Pinto Museum, we then head off to My Pot Restaurant where we over-indulged in Filipino food (buffet-style nonetheless!) for only 125 pesos!

My good friend, Jon of Jontotheworld.com, wrote more about our foodtrip (and Antipolo adventure) on his blog.

With our tummies full, we’re all ready for the Luljetta’s Hanging Garden and Spa experience.

Mommy Travels: Pinto Art Museum, Antipolo

Knowing that I will have my hands full once baby number 3 is born, I try to spend as much quality time with my 2 daughters as possible. So when my highschool best friends planned a daytrip to Antipolo for some R&R a couple of months ago, I immediately tagged Cesca (my eldest) along for some mom-and-daughter bonding.

Read HERE for our Luljetta’s Hanging and Garden Spa experience.

Our itinerary is packed to make the most of the daytrip. After a quick stop at the Our Lady of Peace Church where we also bought suman for pasalubong, we then head out to Pinto Art Museum.
