Last month, we received a timely invitation from a friend for a themed party for the whole family. She didn’t say much about the details of the event but we said YES immediately because of the three things, which we consider important in attending events. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t get much invitations but whenever we get one we feel truly honored and we greatly appreciate it, but we rarely attend as much as we want to due to basic constraints of our home location (Yes, we live in a mountainous place according to Martie) and we also have some issues with our availability (I think I need to make a separate post expounding on this matter). Going back to why we considered attending this event… First, the venue is not that far from our place. Second the schedule falls on a Sunday-rest-day-no-appointment-day for all of us. Third, we can come as a family. Perfect!
Without expecting anything, we arrived at the event’s venue only to be greeted by numerous sponsors, excited organizers and fellow bloggers. Oh! I miss attending events as my ME-time before (see my previous post here, here and here). But this one is something different; it is now FAMILY TIME.
The event was full of activities and surprises for kids and parents from the generous sponsors (list below) but not only that, the event allowed us all to spend some time together as a family plus a chance to meet and mingle with other people… opening doors to friendship and happier blogging community. Mission Accomplished! Thank you Mary and to the rest of the team… May the force be with you. 😉
