I love it when my kids are together, goofing around, making noise, rattling and scrambling , even quarreling— and just being kids (well two are technically adults but still in my eyes they are wearing nappies!). This only happens on special occasions, twice or max, thrice a year. If we are lucky then yes, four. It was such an awesome long weekend we had last week because Dani, our eldest, arrived from the homeland and the very next day we set off for a quick getaway to Hua Hin. We have not been here before, so it was exciting to see a new town and stay bonded for a whole three days.
Hua Hin is a two and a half drive from Bangkok. It’s a nice town, and is considered a holiday destination here in Thailand. We checked-in this new hotel, Amarin Hua Hin, a small and homey feel like hotel. The hotel is nothing to write home about (though I love the Equine interiors to death!), we stayed in a nice Family Suite (love the layout of this room!) that fit all five of us, which was super great because even if we were busy with our own thing, we still are in one big room, embracing the thought of just being close to one another (check out that awesome layout of the room here, I love the bathroom layout too!)
That was such a lovely time and so many happy moments that I truly wish everyday we could be one big happy family. But since life goes on and kids grow up until they are kids not more (yipee let me squeeze the good news here, Dani got a job!!! Proud Mama am I!) I am still blessed that my kids never stray away and still look forward to be with our company. Another blessed thought on having grown up kids is you can count on them for helping out when needed. Yep that’s how lucky I am you know, because I have asked my ever reliable Dani to watch over the household while the H and I are off to our grand adventure 🙂 So maybe, as you read this, I have landed in our first destination, probably in awe of the sights and sounds around me.. just saying, as I am really excited — yipeee!!
Yes, I am counting my blessings! Are you?
Happy Monday everyone!!!
