Easter last year was nicely timed around Akira’s birthday.
J had work exactly the day before Easter in Manila Hotel. An overnight stay at the hotel sounded like a great idea – he could work in peace and quickly get back to us. It would be Akira’s first time to celebrate Easter!
It was our first time to stay here, and we had a memorable time. The hotel was full of staycationing families looking for respite from the summer heat as well as some fun activities for their children.
This was our first Easter in a hotel, and Akira is thankfully at that age where she is more aware of what’s going on, and could participate in the activities. We didn’t pay the bigger older kids any mind as they zoomed off the second the host announced that the egg hunt has begun. We let her take her time, and she loved every minute of it. She loved the eggs that had goodies inside but she was also perfectly happy with finding eggs in colors that she liked.
What was a little irksome were the adults that seemed to be more into the egg hunt than the kids. I get it, there’s a free overnight stay voucher in one of the eggs, but come on, it should be fair game for ALL the kids and the grownups should just stay on the side.
During summer vacation season like this where traffic going south or north is equally horrendous, and all the resorts are fully booked, a brief stay at a family friendly hotel isn’t such a bad idea at all.
So what did we do for Easter THIS year?
