early last week, we were planning a weekend pictorial with nikko at the park for his birthday materials. nikko will be having a western-themed party, and the park was best option at the time. then, last friday, nelo mentioned about possibly going to tagaytay.
ting! light bulb moment! i said why not tomorrow (saturday)! there were horses at residence inn and it will be the perfect touch for nikko's pictorial.
we were ready by 6:30 am and waited for my sil. they got to our house at 7:30am, we packed all our staff in the car and we were on our way by 8am.
you can see nikko's excitement on the road. same thing with aly as she wanted nikko to stay with her at the back. but, no can do. we just made a short stop at the shell station at south superhighway and we were off again. we told aly to take a nap first and i breastfed nikko also so he can sleep en route to tagaytay.
we reached our destination by 9:30am. nikko woke up just in time. it was a smooth drive until we hit a snag on the way to residence inn. it was traffic for about 30-minutes or so. turns out there was a vehicular accident along the way. but past that, we were at residence inn by 10:30am.
after parking, we got ready to change nikko's outfit. meanwhile, nelo and myla asked around for the rates. we did not go inside residence inn anymore but just stayed outside where they had a horse track for those who wanted a horseback ride. the rate was a steal at P50 for a 3-round ride at the tracks!
after that, he took a ride with his ate aly around the tracks. love his expression! he was enjoying it but he was oh so serious. he probably knows that if he budges a bit he might fall from the horse.
after the picnic, we dropped by tierra de maria for a church visit. we had to say thank you for a safe travel and for a smooth pictorial session with nikko.
