Once Upon A Summer

I know we have an extended summer this year. It should've been raining these days but it's still deliriously hot especially at noon. I remember when I was younger, my favorite months of the year were July until October: obviously rainy months! But when I had kids, and I knew the inconveniences the rain brings, I began to dislike it. Rainy season is flu season. It's also flood season and no-malling-on-weekends season! :) So before it rains, let me share with you our pictures one fine summer.

My SIL and his family checked in at Sofitel and invited us to come over last April. Gabby and Sunday really liked to swim so we let them. They had so much fun that they visited their aunt almost every other day during their almost a month stay there.

My unconscious change of choice from rainy months to sunny months maybe has something to do with my new disposition in life. While summer brings good times and good memories, rain sometimes connotes sadness and gloom. And I don't want to entertain sadness these days. So I'm choosing summer! And I choose happiness today! :)

That was a nice and relaxing stay at Sofitel. It provided a very good view of the outside world, too. I love the pics of the hotel pool from your room, lovely!
