The Mommy Bloggers Philippines Mad Hatter Party 2016

It was our second time to join the Mommy Bloggers Philippines’ (MBP) annual trick or treating event. For this year, The Mind Museum, the Philippines’ first interactive science museum, graciously hosted the venue for our blogging community. My family and I have been to the Mind Museum three times already but we have yet to fully explore its scientific wonders. By the way, the Museum has seasonal special exhibits, the most recent one was Dino Play (which ended last September 30 and we had tons of fun in that exhibit!) and it has an upcoming Science Circus which opens on October 28.

Going back to our MBP party… I actually liked this year’s celebration better than last year in terms of proximity and type of venue. This year was more private as we had the Special Exhibit Hall all to ourselves and our loved ones. Mommy bloggers had more time to fellowship with one another and our kids were able to play with each other. We still had to chase our little ones around but I was fine with it because the area was closed and there was a guard on standby so I didn’t worry that my son would go farther away from me. I just got a bit confused as there were too many boys who chose to be Spiderman that day – the costume that my son chose over the little engineer outfit that I planned for him to wear.

Lani of Tweenselmom.com hosted a simple program for us. She made the kids wearing costumes go up the stage in batches so us moms could check out and vote the ones with the most creative outfits. We do have the Mad Hatter / Alice in Wonderland theme this year but Lani, Joy of Joybites.com and Louisa of ArtofBeingAMom.com, the power ladies behind MBP, have given the attendees a heads up that our kids could come as they want to be. A great decision, in my opinion, as most kids, especially the younger ones like mine, are not too fond of wearing elaborate costumes. Case in point: My son who chose to slip on his ultra comfy Spiderman long sleeved shirt rather than put on a helmet, wear a more dapper shirt.

My son and I had fun in this party. I like that it was more laidback, good for me since I am still recovering from lower back pain. I appreciated the sponsors who generously sent goodies for all the mommies and our kids as well as the suppliers who participated that day. To know more about them, please read the MBP Press Release below and check out their websites and social media pages. Their products and services are seriously worth being part of your next event :) Some of the photos were taken by our sweet and friendly photographer, R. Vercide Photography.
