This summer is full of fun for the kiddos, they got to experience a lot of things. This was a school break where non-stop activities just keep pouring for my kids. Not only that they got to experience fun stuff, they also did some volunteering jobs and be part of some important event that has a big impact in their lives. We also did a lot of "first-time" activities so this is really a jam-packed summer.
One of the boys from my daughter's class loves playing pool tricks. In just six months, he already broke the Guiness World Record for a Jump Pot of a Billiard Ball. My daughter witnessed his successful attempt and was happy for the support that she gave her friend.
For the first time, they experienced the adrenaline rush in White Water Rafting that we did in Hartford Tennessee. It was a lot of fun!
Congratulations to Theo for breaking the Guinness World Record for a Jump Pot of a Billiard Ball. Considering that he has only been playing for 6 months, that’s pretty amazing! We’re very happy for you Theo. Congrats Jon and Amy! #GuinessWorldRecordHolder #JumpPotBilliardBall #BilliardTrickShots #SJS #SpartanKids
This was also their first experience in Horse Backriding. We did it on our second day in Pigeon Forge.
Our Tenessee trip was a blast. We got to do a lot of things.
We went horse back riding at Ponderosa Big Rock Riding Stables. It was a very relaxing one hour ride on a beautiful Smoky Mountain Trail. These are our horses names; @ryliecottrill - Haa @e.joops.hw - Moonshine Mine - Gee Hubby - Maryland #HorseBackRiding #NatureAdventure #Tennessee #PigeonForce #vacation🌴
Our trip to Moundsville was not really for leisure but we made it fun and educational.
Another year of Amish exploration for us. We can't let a year pass by without visit the Amish Place in Ohio, this time we went on a different one, we went to a bigger one which is the Walnut Creek . Amish place really brings us a relaxing feeling that we don't get driving around here in the city. There is something out there that's so calm and enjoyable.
We live near Pittsburgh and we have been there so many times but we have never been to their state park in the middle of the city. In fact we didn't know about Point State Park until this year so it was nice seeing it for the first time.
North Star Tiki is between Pittsburgh and the city where we live but we have never been there before. My daughter's class held their end-of-the-year party there so we all got to go and see the place. We had a lot of fun there as well.
We have been to so many places in Ohio but not in Cincinnati so we were glad that the place we stayed at in Kentucky was near Cincinnati.
We got to see their International Friendship Park and get to enjoy the thriving arts scene all around the city and we got to bond with the Dias Family.
Before leaving Pigeon Forge, we dropped by at Gatlinburg a little bit and enjoy the scenery and shopped a little bit.
We participated at the campus clean up project that was spearheaded by one of my son's classmates.
We volunteered to help at the church's fund raising event where donated items were sold at the annual rummage sale that was held at the school gymnasium.
For the first time, we were part of the 4th of July parade, we joined the Pro Life group.After playing #badminton, we went to St. Joe’s and help with the rummage sale. We will go back again tomorrow. We’re making summer break worthwhile. If you guys wants to find neat stuff, come at St. Joe’s gymnasium in June 14, 15, 16. They have so many things from furniture to collectible stuff, you name it. #charity #rummageSale #donation
This is the second time my daughter volunteered for the Vacation Bible school. She usually helps with the arts and crafts.
#TGIF! #MyDaughter was so exhausted yesterday so I’m letting her sleep in today. Yesterday was the last day of #VacationBibleSchool at St. Joe’s. She was one of the facilitator/helper of the said event. I am so proud of some of the SJS girls whose always willing to #volunteer in event like this. #SpartanGirls
This was the first year where the volleyball coach from my kids school formed a team and participated to the summer program of the Pittsburgh Elite Volleyball. Their last fun activity was going to a fair with their friends.
They have been back to school for a week now so I feel like the summer break went flew by so quickly. Now they are back to their regular routine for school, violin lessons, and juijitsu. My daughter's volleyball season have started already so they will be very busy with school related functions again.
