The kids enjoyed themselves. When they came back they said everything was "THE BEST"

I really love the Novotel... That is why I booked it again! They were wore out when they got home! Lil RED cheeks and ALL! I missed them! But they had fun and for the most part- They were good for Karina! That is the good thing!

Beach Bumming in Kuwait!

 After I got off on Friday morning... I went to eat at Early Bird with a couple of friends from work. I had the Banana Bread French Toast... (Seriously- Try it!)
The WORLD is so small because a lady that works in there is from my county in Fla!!! Shout Out to Citrus Co!!! LOL.

I got home and told the kids to get their bathing suits on. I took them to one of the my company's buildings to swim... It was SO COLD and SO deep that I thought... Hmmm- I have been here a long time and I have never been to the beach! So... ROAD TRIP! I went looking for one place... But ended up at another!!! We went to the El Joan Resort. I liked it. It was not crowded... And it was so nice! I could not find a website... But the below is the resort right next door. We will be going there one day too! There was a section named 'Amber'

Here are some photos from our day out~

We love the WATER!!!

Going to GOA!!!

I really would love to travel around the Middle East but considering everything that is going on... I decided it is best to skip those trips for now. If I was alone it would be different... But I gotta protect my CUBS:)
Dubai is great... But honestly I have been there so many times that it is nothing spectaular to me anymore. And why not take advantage of the CHEAP trips!!!
We are going to G-O-A! That is going to be our next Mini Vacation! Google has helped me provide some reasons why:

I know that we will have fun! Now let the PLANNING begin!!!

Now here is the story-

We arrived at the AP and it was a short waiting line at immigration considering most of the people off the flight were GCC nationals which means that they went to another line. Then to the Taxi line, just follow the red signs on the floor that say taxi and have red arrows pointing in the direction of the exit.
There is automatically a fare of 20 AED for regular cars and 25 AED for mini-vans. Off the the Atlantis we go. 
When you pull up you are nicely welcomed. They take your bags and give you a tag. Go to the front desk if you booked a regular room. We booked an Imperial Club room which meant that we get to go to this room off to the side with no lines and check in. After check in you get a mini tour and escorted to your room. Now you are free to go and do as you like. ***There is a mini bar in the room, it is automated, so if you move anything... you get charged. (I found that out the hard way)
With the Imperial Club you get free access into the Water Park, The Kid's Club, the Spa/Gym and the Lost Chambers. Lost Chambers is an Aquarium with some cool decorations. When you are at the Water Park... make sure you grab a tube. They do NOT have them in the water slide lines. Basically you have to find one floating around some where. Also- Make sure you get a locker key at the ticketing counter (40 AED) 
The SPA was outstanding and the kids really enjoyed their time at the Kid's Club. We spent mot of our time in the water. If we weren't at the water park; we were at the pool. 
That was the our trip for the most part. Enjoy the photos:) They did not upload in order... Sorry
