How to cool off this summer? Go Swim and Eat!

My family and I recently went on a swimming escapade a few days ago, and it was set as a whole day affair. The venue was also just a short walk from our house so everybody was thrilled about that. It was also recently when the private pool was discovered. So my Kuya had it reserved right away (from 10 am to 6 pm).

I wasn't supposed to join them since I had so much work to do. But when I dropped-by to check out the pool, I was almost ready to jump into this enchanting abyss! The 6-feet deep pool was so inviting considering that it was sweltering that day. I went home right away to change into my swimsuit!

Oh, before I forget --- each of us, regardless if we were swimming or not were charged Php150 each. It was a bit pricey since we were 16 inside the premises. So we just made sure to make the most out of the place.

The little kids, trying out the deepest part of the pool.
Sleeping Baby Secret -- the youngest member of our family! :) 
The Dela Torre's.
My nephew Monzi, swimming without floaters!! :D
Synchcronized Dive! :)
Superman Pose Part I. :)
I don't know what to call this pose of my brother's?! :P
The suspended yoga pose of my nephew. :)
Flying kick! Literally! :D
Superman pose, really?
TEMPLE RUN POSE! :)
My view of the pool area..
Teyt and Monzi, the first two to jump into the pool!

We also had some Liempo grilled that afternoon, and had also prepared some green mango salad as our side dish. Anyway, I will be sharing those photos on my food blog! :) So hop on to Sinigang Junkie to see what we ate by the poolside! 

Also, it's been raining for a couple of days now, and it seems that summer is drawing to a close. The question here is, how did you spend your hot & humid week?

  7. You were good at catching those poses, amazing! Did they charged the baby P150 as well?
    I agree its a bit pricey but I assumed you had a grand time so maybe sulit na rin.

  20. I know, right? Hehehe! These shots weren't that hard to take naman. It was all the more fun capturing those precious moments. :)

  21. Those pictures are funny. I cannot do those poses before jumping into the pool.



    Oh yeah, summer is near. Lucky us, we have a swimming pool at home but we do not usually dip into the waters because we're always too busy with other things.

  22. The dive shots look awesome! I like how how the poses were captured as they fell into the pool.

    ReplyDelete
  23. your pictures are nostalgic, it reminds me of my younger years when all of us go to the beach, from the oldies to the youngsters and we just enjoy good food and good laughter.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great shots and a great fun time. Precious! Priceless! Life at its purest simplicity - loveeet it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was looking for your unique diving pose. Amazing how they can do that. I for one am not much of a daredevil when it comes to diving in the pool. I guess that's what does steps at the side are made for. => Just reminded me that summertime is coming and would want to hit the pool real soon.

    ReplyDelete
  26. We actually have something similar here in the province. An OFW couple rents out their pool since they are not here most times of the year. May business sense! and those dive shots are so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, swimming and eating are the best ways to bond with our family and cool off on summers that is why we have 4 swimming/outings this summer. :) Great shots you got here.
