Another simple gathering happens, and as usual, I am present on this occasion.
While my hubby didn't come with us as he always wants to stay home. Well, that's how we got differ from each other. But yeah, I'm getting used to it.
It was 5:30 pm when this gathering got started. The plan is 4:00 pm, but you know how Filipino time function on every occasion. You should expect 1 hour late before it starts.
This gathering began with a children's game.
It is called "Candy and Spoon Relay". It is when one of the kids will get a candy through her spoon in her mouth without using her hands, pass it on her back... Until it goes to the last person. And of course, without falling.
They were separated into two groups. This first group tried so many times... Until eventually...
This game is kinda frustrating and stressful for us adults, but the kids enjoyed it. They're good at it. Even young ones got the tactics and balance the candy on their spoon.
So in the end, they got their prizes.
We adults also played a game. We're into two groups. Each of us was handed a letter of the alphabet. And every time there's a question, we need to arrange ourselves to where we should be, to organize and read the word properly.
And in the end, our group won. 🎉 Yipee...
Individually, we got a prize.
That's candy and hairclip. While boys got candy and ballpen or sticky notes.
And of course, gatherings won't be complete without food. There's a lot of food at the table, but I prefer eating instead of capturing it. 🙈
There were a lot of games that happened, but as a mom, I got separated from the group when my little one cries and want to sleep.
Good thing that after one game, he got woke up...
We go outside and my Dad gets him and entertained him so I can join the game and the crowd.
That's how good and considerate my family is. They want me to enjoy that evening. So, they do everything to help me with my child. 😅
All in all... We all got different prizes even the losing team.
This just makes us satisfied and enjoy the day without regrets of joining that simple gathering.

The reunions when there are many children are nice but can be exhausting hehe. In my family, the children are now teenagers and it's another thing.
By the way, here we usually play a game similar to the spoon and candy game.
Yeah. But having their parents guide them... Is a big help for the host. 😅 It's also different enjoyment watching kids play than having just the company of teenagers. That time they get shy and don't socialize too much. 😅

Try it. It's fun, but a little bit hard. HAHA. All you need is balance and a strong mouth. 😂
I can feel the vibe of the gathering from your writing, I can tell that you had a lot of fun even with the kids.
Their game is cool and definitely requires lots of patience to play. The food is my favorite part because I am a foodie, thanks for sharing with us this awesome moment.
Thank you, @gorge-dee. Yes. I always find gatherings fun as I love socializing.
And you're right. The first game requires a lot of patience. Good thing kids have a lot of it. HAHA.
I feel bad I didn't capture the food. I'm sure you'll be happy if I did. 😅
This was a really beautiful and lively hang out and I love the games that were played, especially that of the little ones.
It's a good thing your dad helped out in taking care of your child so you could join in the fun
Yeah. My Dad and Mom take charge of my little one that night. And I can feel their concern on my behalf. That's why I love having them in my life. Everything seems so light when they're around.
That's right, you have a lovely family and I'm happy for you.
Great game and that Filipino time, is exactly the same in Spain 🤣
