LJ Reyes organized an action-packed, all-day celebration for her son Ethan Akio’s 9th birthday, at a popular theme park in Santa Rosa, Laguna on Saturday, July 20.

“All we wanted for him was to enjoy a full day with the family — most especially with his ‘best cousins’ (his cousins but they treat each other as best of friends!)” she explained, as per her Instagram post yesterday, July 21. “And since this boy is starting to become more and more adventurous, we booked a day at Enchanted Kingdom.”

Yesterday had been one of the most fun birthday celebrations Aki ever had! All we wanted for him was to enjoy a full day with the family — most especially with his “best cousins” (his cousins but they treat each other as best of friends!). We thought of giving him an all-day activity! And since this boy is starting to become more and more adventurous, we booked a day at Enchanted Kingdom @ek_philippines. We thought the kids will definitely love it but now we all — adults and kids can’t get enough of EK that we are already planning our trip back! . It’s been a while since the last time I have been there and yesterday proved that “Magic Never Ends” at that place! It felt like it was the same old Enchanted Kingdom but even better! Here are some of the things Aki loved: 1. Aki loved Laser Mission— he even became a champ with a record of 23 seconds! See a clip on my IG Story/Highlights. 2. Aki loved Rio Grande and couldn’t help but take several rides even if they were already soaking wet! 3. Aki loved the “skill games” where he got to play the old school “perya” games and win prizes for himself and for his sister too! . But for me, my favorite part of the whole day is when he said “I’m so happy mom! Thank you! Thank you to Tito @paolo_contis ! It’s a super happy day!” I may not have that caught on camera, but it will forever be etched in my heart, stored in my memory!❤️

Ethan’s adventure-filled celebration did not stop there as he enjoyed playing skills games, where “he got to play the old school ‘perya’ games and win prizes for himself and for his sister.”

Reyes then gushed about Ethan expressing his happiness and gratitude.

“My favorite part of the whole day is when he said ‘I’m so happy mom! Thank you! Thank you to [Paolo Contis]! It’s a super happy day,’” she said. “I may not have that caught on camera, but it will forever be etched in my heart, stored in my memory!”
