We spent the entire afternoon in the Dubai Creek Children's Park. It is a very nice area with a ton of stuff to do with kids. James is too young obviously, but we have decided that we'll go back there one day. Having a park like that would be amazing in Saudi. It is times like that that I wish Saudi had their act together. They certainly have the money Dubai has, just weird in the way they spend it.
After roaming around the park for a few hours, we took another taxi to Festival City, where we decided to eat at Hard Rock Cafe. The food as always was great, and we bought James his first HRC onesie.
We leave very early in the morning to fly back to Bahrain where we'll hop over into Saudi. We should be home by 11:00 am, so we'll have the day to rest before going back to work on Monday.
James' first on this trip (14.5 weeks old)...
1st time out of the country (Bahrain and United Arab Emirates)
1st time across Saudi/Bahrain Causeway
1st airplane ride (Bahrain to Dubai) and (Dubai back to Saudi)
1st monorail ride (Dubai)
1st hotel stay (Rose Garden Hotel Apartments Dubai)
1st Hard Rock Cafe (Dubai)
1st time rolling on one side
1st time rolling in the grass (this may seem weird, but remember where we live)
1st time held by complete strangers (everyone seems to have an opinion on how to calm a baby)
1st tear rolling down the cheek
He's also really starting to "jabber" and may be teething.
