This year, we decided that we'll do something different for our son's 9th birthday party, which was last April so I searched online for any fun family event we can do for our handsome boy, EJ. I then came across MetroDeal which offered half a price for the entrance to a water park called Splash Island. I looked up online for this water park which is situated in Southwoods Ecocentrum Binan, Laguna (Philippines) and it seemed decent so I purchased 10 vouchers for the whole family.
My sister and her family stayed over at my house the day before we went to Splash Island so that we all go together. At 7am, we were all off to a short road trip towards South. Right outside the entrance, there were desks for voucher holders so I proceeded to show them my printed out vouchers and in return they gave me 10 tickets.
Be warned though, they do not allow anyone to come in with food and drinks. We didn't have any food and drinks with us except for my one-year old nephew who had a bottle of previously-boiled water. It took awhile for my sister to convince them that the water was for the baby and to let them in because everyone in the family were waiting inside. They were very strict about it, so it seemed. Eventually though, the staff suggested to hide the water bottle upon entering the premise.
While waiting, we took photos of ourselves:
When at last they were able to enter, EJ ran straight to the kiddie pool / slide with Seamus, his Dad while the girls got change in the ladies' room and the other boys in the men's room.
Of course, after changing into our swimsuits, time to strike a pose!
EJ and Seamus decided to queue for the giant slide so off we went for that one, me as their photographer.
I got bored and tired holding my dslr waiting for EJ and Seamus to slide down, so I asked my sister to uncap my bottle of ice tea. The drink hardly touched my throat when I saw my boys zooming down the slide! Thank goodness to my ever dependable dslr, I was able to shoot rapidly and got these photos:
Then a big splash!
We had a quick lunch, rested then decided we all go to the Agos Grandes, one of a kind pool with machine-generated waves. (Of course I didn't bring my camera so no photos of us having fun at the pool.)

Time to go home by this time though.
What was your family fun day this summer?
