We want to celebrate birthdays with less physical 'stuff' and more experiences so Paul wanted to go to Pearl Farm Beach Resort for his birthday. Pearl Farm is on Samal Island a 1 hour motor boat ride from Davao City.
The kids were super excited for the boat ride!
Here we are ready to go!
Here's a video walkthrough of our house for the overnight.

This is just a portion of the starfish Alia collected and then released.
We spent some time kayaking. Even the kids did it alone. At low tide, they could kayak around in water that remained about 2ft deep no matter where they went.
