Birthdays with the Whaleshark Part 1

As we have planned, we've celebrated EJ and John's birthday in the Philippines during our vacation. We were going to celebrate it in Daraga but we chose to held it in Donsol instead so we'll have a chance to enjoy the peak season of Butanding or whaleshark month. There were lots of tourists there to watch the famous-friendly creatures.

We've paid the canteen of the school where I used to work to cater for our food. Thanks a lot to Ate Chay and Lynes for the transportation. Thanks also for the Baldon-Siapno family, Beler family and for my family and friends in Donsol for joining us with this special occasion of my men.
We ordered the cake at Graceland in Legazpi City.

EJ stuck his finger in the cake before it gets cut hehehe.
Rylie always volunteer to blow the candles lol.

Picture taking after the party, some are in the boats already so we only had a chance to take with the people going to Legazpi.

Don't miss the Part 2 of this post where we swam with the butanding or the whaleshark.
