It's the rainy season and also back-to-school already.  Although we like the cool breeze the weather brings, admit it, we all miss Mr. Sun and can't help thinking about the past two months when our kids are on school break.  So looking back last vacation, I want to share with you one of our swimming escapades at 8 Waves Waterpark & Hotel.

Every summer vacation, our family make sure that we plan a swimming outing.  One of our favorite destinations is 8 Waves Waterpark & Hotel in San Rafael, Bulacan.  Our company sponsors an annual family outing for its employees and it's fortunate that we get to go to 8 Waves Waterpark & Hotel for free.

Both my kids love to swim and don't mind getting dark, as long they're happy.  That's what my elder son tells me each time we swim and his little brother is picking that up from him as well.  I think they got from me their love for the water.

If you ask my son why he loves this place definitely he will answer: THE WAVE POOL!  Yes, 8 Waves Waterpark is called that name because of their famous wave pool.  This main pool attraction creates 8 kinds of waves which is bring a unique recreational experience for anyone who would visit this resort.  To give you another trivia, it's also called 8 Waves because the owner has 8 children.

Swimming Pools
8 Waves Waterpark has a total of five (5) attraction pools which are age appropriate and cater to different interests.  We tried all pools and my sons had so much fun.  Since my elder is bigger now and familiar with the place (we've been going here almost every year) he could go by himself and pretty much swim in all the pools.  My toddler and I of course were always together.  Here's our adventure:
