Summer is FUN!

Summer is so much fun, there are lots of things to do outdoors, especially for the children. I just don't like the fact that our house is located near the wood line of a mountain because we are surrounded by a lot of mosquitoes which continuously feast on my kids blood when they are outside.



I am also glad that my children inherited the Filipino trait of good climbing. Even though they are still very young, they can climb to great heights with ease and without fear. You probably wouldn't believe it but my wife can climb any type of tree, even a coconut tree with ease.

it is the same here mosquitoes are very annoying when it comes to summer enjoyment. summer is mosquito season.
it is so true that filipino men especially those living in the farm are very good coconut/tree climbers. hehehe.. you remind me of my uncle and even my dad before, they used to climb the coconut tree just to mainly get the coconut sap to be used for making tuba (coconut wine)..hehehe

Hi there! I am finally getting caught up on all of my blogging...great post! I might seem ignorant, but I really never knew that filipino's are good at climbing. That was very interesting to learn!

I also liked your post on rain barrels; My Grandma used to talk about how they used those, and how some of their neighbors would put screens on top of their wooden barrels so that leaves, sticks, etc., wouldn't get in their water. :)

cool pics sis. I'm not a good climber myself. I don't want to get hurt that's why I don't even want to try it lol. My son is opposite of me though. I think kids are like monkeys they like climbing lol.

Wow, didn't know that Rose can climb coconut tree with ease. That's pretty impressive! I guess not too many Filipinos have that ability.

Isn't that amazing that Rose can easily climb trees, even coconut trees? She came from the province in the Philippines and most children there play by climbing trees to pick up ripe fruits. Looks like your kids took on the climbing prowess of their mom. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

John, not just you in summer.. we in Malaysia are constantly haunt by them... my Princess got bites all over! I am using the J&J mozzie lotion to avoid this when we are out!
