Yesterday was a fun day.. We finally got to get out and go shopping! This whole week that we have been here it has been Holy Week and basically everything has been closed! But yesterday mostly everything opened back up and we were able to get out of the hotel and go do something! We first went to a mall called Robinsons... Let just say we walked in and you have to go through security first boys go in one side and girls go in the other side! The second we walked in I wondered what we had gotten ourselves into! There were so many different stores that it was overwhelming.. We had Payson in a stroller which was not a very good idea cause most of the stores are smaller so I always felt like we were in the way because people couldn't get passed us. We didn't stay at this mall for very long before we both decided that we had enough and were ready to go... If you really enjoyed shopping you could spend days at a time in the mall because there is three levels of all different kind of stores!
After we left the mall we came back to the hotel and had Landon and Payson swim for about an hour before nap time! When we first got here the first two times that we put Payson in the pool he screamed and cried because he didn't like it.. Then yesterday he loved it I don't know if its because we got a little tube to put him in, or if it was because he was in the big pool! But he loved it... He laughed and giggled and gave Landon kisses and splashed around. Towards the end we could tell that he was super tired so we got out and came back to the hotel room..
The second we got to the room he was falling asleep while we were getting him changed.. Landon had worked the night before and didn't get much sleep afterwards so he decided it was his turn to take a nap with Payson! The time change from here to Utah is 14 hours, so we are always a day ahead.. It has been super hard adjusting to the time change.. Especially for poor little Payson! The first three days we were here he was the oneriest little boy that we had ever met.. Landon and I were both about ready to go crazy!! He was tired all of the time and when he was awake he would just whine! The first night he went to bed at 8:30 and woke up at 5 thinking it was morning... Then the second night he went to bed at 8;00 and woke up at 4:30. The third night he went to bed at 8:30 and woke up at 5:30. Last night he went to bed at 8:30 and woke up at 6:30. So I think that we are finally getting the hang of the time change and will eventually get to sleep in until at least 7 if we are lucky!:)
After naps we went to another mall called S&M i didn't get my camera out to take picture of it but oh my gosh it is huge... It also has every store in it.. And I think everybody that lives in Bacolod was there.. It was so claustriphobic because there wasn't even any room to walk.. I have honestly never seen so many people in one place at one time! We shopped for a little bit but didn't last to long.. Payson loved this store because he got to ride on a little merry go round.. He was in heaven.. He of course threw a fit when he had to get off, and when we passed it again on our way out of the store!
|As you can tell in the background there is the two girls starring at Payson.. We feel like celebrities here because everyone loves white babies!! When we put him on the merry go round everybody stopped to watch him ride it!|
There was one purchase that we made at both of the malls and that was a book for Payson that he absolutely loves!! Its called My First Farm Words!! He loves animals and loves trying to make animal sounds so he loved looking at this book while we shopped!
