The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
Matthew 28:5-7 NASB
Yes Easter day is a commemoration of the Lord's risen day. He doesn't die every year and rises from the dead three days after every year. It happened once and He paid it all once.
And I am just so happy, elated even to be invited to celebrate it with my kids at the first and only hotel in the country that has the finest Butler services, Pan Pacific Manila. Parents came excited as much as their kids were, and we were all in for a treat, which made us adults became like children for a day. Let my pictures tell you how the afternoon was.
|Right before we entered, we were greeted warmly and goodie bags were to welcome everyone|
|The stage adorned colorfully geared-uo for the Eggs-travagant Carnival theme|
|Charming dining setup, where we all sat on a cushy and tables lowered so kids are more comfortable and relaxed|
|My daughter Danica paused for the face to be painted|
Kids and adults alike had their turns on the face painting spot which had faces livened up with colors and glitters while we enjoy more fun treats.
|Giant castle and bouncy house inflatables|
|Kids wandered around for the game booths provided which was made more exciting with prizes|
|We were kept entertained all afternoon with balloon arts, parlor games and magic shows|
|Spongebob, Patrick Star and the whole Bikini Bottom gang were there and so with Noah and his animal friends|
If you think the party ended there, wait till you see the other pictures below.
|Each children experienced being inside a gigantic bubble.|
|The prize for the one who had the most number of colored eggs had this bunny couple taken home.|
What could have been a better spectacle for the children and the whole family to celebrate the Lord's Risen day commemoration.
