Friends visit

Towards the end of April, we were lucky enough to have our friends from Abu Dhabi come visit us!

We packed that weekend FULL of fun.


Off for our first day of adventuring!



Breakfast at our favorite little cafe...



We visited the park...


...where Brother "drove" the ladies around =)


...and zip-lined...









We went swimming...






Both days the majority of us took a little siesta in the afternoon.
One siesta included a pile up of adorable girls...




We met up with some other fun friends for a tasty outdoor dinner...





Brother enjoyed having time with this "older woman" (she's ten ;)  and it was adorable to see him be so intrigued by her) while the other kids played around...







The next day we all headed out to Trampo Extreme, and this cute friend and I were twinning...


...but were still not as cute as these two buddies...


Trampo is so much fun!! I mean, where else can you beat your momma up on a balance beam in an attempt to knock her off???

( I feel it's imparitive that I tell you I totally let him when. Because I am very mature and not at all prideful.)


Sister the acrobat...

Dueling twins...



We had such a fun time....just look at our sweet friend's face here...uninhibited laughter...





We played a every-man-for-himself, cutthroat  friendly, totally not competitive game of dodge ball...





Part of our tired, sweaty, delighted group...



We stopped by this sign to take a pic...



Four cuties from opposite ends of the globe, who met up and became besties in Kuwait.
Life is never boring.


That evening we went to an outdoor market. It had some goods to be sold, food to be eaten, live entertainment, and a pretty cool vibe...







Two sweeties and a giant paper mache giraffe...




We were so happy to run into another buddy there!!




The twins loved playing around in the hula hooping area...

Our crew enjoying the concert...




We ran into one of our old dance instructors, and he and Brother had a little Robot Moment...

Sister crafted a paper mache cat...




And that night, these four CRASHED...




The next morning we were super sad to see our friends go, but tried to focus on being grateful we got to see them at all!

They left before 7:00am, and the kids and I stayed home from school/work that day, which was confirmed to be a good decision when I found Sister like this...



Napping on (not clean) laundry in the middle of the hallway.

I asked her if she would rather move to her bed, and she voluntarily put herself down for a nap before 9:00am.

That has happened exactly zero times in her seven years of life.
Clearly, we had a fun-filled weekend =).
