seven days

As the excitement from my sister’s visit slowly winds down it’s giving me time to check how their trip went. Review at the same time share with you the week that was. I wanted to write real-time events as the day was happening but after the day of touring, taking care of the kids making sure my visitors were comfortable, I had no energy left to write.

In summary, here’s how their 7 days in Dubai went:

 

Day 1: Karama (Shopping), Dubai Creek, and my personal form of initiation to Dubai, the Camel Burger.

To cap of their trip we had Easter dinner at Dubai Mall and watched the fountain. They were concentrating on keeping Miguel awake all afternoon that by the time we were at the fountain he was NOT in a good mood. I found this video online of the Dubai Fountain and this was the theme song that evening. Enjoy!

 

I like having my schedules but coming into this I knew I had to be really flexible with the small kids. Sometimes our schedules would change mid day because one child or all three were acting up.  But considering all the places we managed to go to in a short amount of time, I’d say we were successful. In the end I think my sister’s main goal was to visit me and the kids so even without the tour part she would’ve been happy…HINDI RIN!!! hahahaha
