Bahrain Vacation

I must be getting used to this traveling... I am usually a SUPER PLANNER... But this trip... I packed the day of travel for me. (I did have the kids' stuff packed though)


After a short (45 minutes) and almost empty flight... We landed in Bahrain. HUMID... It was hard to breathe at first. You just start to MELT and your clothes STICK to your body!!!

I stopped at the duty free and grabbed a six pack of Smirnoff Ice... Dj says, "Mom, Only boys drink beer!" Very loud...  Cheers!!!


After we arrived at the hotel... Things were great. We got in the pool. The kids learned how to swim!




They were ALL over in the DEEP end! DJ can dive 7 feet and get a coin!!! YAY!

All the kids wanted to do was hang out at the pool. So that is what we did for 2 days. There were two young girls that the kids befriended from South Africa... They live in Saudi Arabia... I wish we would have gotten their contact information because they were so sweet.

A bit of shopping...
 She said, "Mommy, She is brown like me!!!" So I had to get it!

In the Virgin Super Store! Dj got a cool game that I will have to make a WHOLE blog post on!


Gotta get a snack... Gloria Jean's!!! I love your Cookies 'N' Cream drink and the Oreo Cheese Cake... GREATNESS!!!












We went to Wahoo Water Park. It is an indoor/outdoor at the City Center. It was one of the best water parks I have been to. We got to ride on all the slides and there were NO LINES which was the GREAT.







I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation! The kids wore me out.

I will post more photos later!

Later has COME:
My Pretty Girl!
Dj in the front!
The Novotel!

All the details were so pretty!

At the Mall!
Maybe this is a sign... Paris???



Misty's Cupcake

My sister baked some cupcakes that looked SUPER yummy so I decided to try them out!

She failed to mention how STICKY the frosting would be! LOL. And I forgot the chocolate chips :( But all in all... they were GREATNESS!!!

Banana Split Cupcakes!!!

I made this one for Gustavo... It has a heart...

Friday: The 13th?

I didn't realize that it was Friday the 13th until after the fact... Hmmmm, That only shows how the days blend in together here. At times I hate being off on Friday because NOTHING is open in the morning! I woke up early and full of energy... with NO Where to go.

So- What did I do?. i woke up the kids... Made breakfast... We all got dressed and we ventured out anyways.

We went to Fahaheel and I see that the Al Manshar Mall is being TORN apart! Now where will I be able to get that Chocolate conditioner I love so much??? I can honestly say that there was not much in that mall... But it did have one of the kids' favorite places to go and play!

We ran some errands at the Bazaar... Got some more movies... exchanged the bad ones... Drank a lot of water and than... Back to the coolness of our home.
We were melting!!!
 We watched Ice Age 4. Which may I add: What Super Cute with a BIG C!!!!


Shira was voiced by Jennifer Lopez (Which you can tell without looking it up)















and the every SO grown Peaches was played by Keke Palmer! Great choice.

 Drake played Ethan... That is my crush too:) (Just Kidding)  Or am I?


Nicki Minaj also voiced a small role in the movie as a Mammoth...

And Wanda Sykes, I love her voice for cartoons, played Grandma Sloth!



We all enjoyed the movie.

I went to go meet Gustavo online... Same time EVERYDAY... And see that DJ has made his Yahoo IM in Chinese...Hmmm. How does he do this stuff? I fixed it... When I came back out... This is what I found.

 

Pizza cured that...

The kids put in Journey 2 but I fell asleep before I could even see The Rock's face... I was super tired!!!

Another Friday





I never thought that I would be able to say that I spent my whole day at the mall... But...Me and the Baby Bears were at Avenues ALL day yesterday!!!
First things first... Get the tickets for "The Amazing Spiderman" 1630 is SOLD OUT... So 1900 it is!!!






We had to get the Birth Certificates for our Baby Bears!
Then we took some pictures for Daddy! The kids played at "Baroue" I was shocked that it was TWO stories! I guess it is HIDDEN... Not the normal Mall Play Place. I liked it!
This is a HARD Car racing game!!! They did win 1st place on Mario Kart though:)






 SHAKE SHACK
We shared some ice cream!
Mimi said it was the best lunch she EVER had.

It is strange it is like there is some radio frequency that is shot out and everyone goes to the same place. It was crowded when we got there, but after we ordered... It was quiet.
The kids and I ended up sitting at the same place that Gustavo and I sat at our first time there :(

The kids got 'The Shack Burger' and I got the double. Fries...
This was the design on the table. The kids thought it was cool. They asked me to take a picture so we can remember! LOL
Princess Mimi
Our Knight DJ

This was a shot from where we were sitting.
Movie Time!!!

I actually fell asleep. I hardly slept that morning after work... (CON of working Night shift) From what I remember the movie was GREAT! The kids thought so.

We got home... Ordered Pizza and then watched a movie. The kids knocked out pretty fast!

Here is ONE reason why I love having a Little Girl!
She wears my shoes, just because:)

Fat Fat

I was in the mirror looking at myself thinking, "Wow Amber, You are looking good! You look like you are losing weight" I decided to get on the scale... Thought it was a fluke... So tried again... Same result... Hmmm....

Since My Beau has been gone I have gained 10 lbs! How is this possible? I hardly eat... I stopped drinking soda??? What can do?

I told Gustavo that either I would be thin as a rail... Or Fat as a Cow when he got back... This will be the result if I am the latter of the two!



Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Talk about motivatation!!!
A friend did this when I was in Iraq! The App is called "Fat Booth"
"Get in my Belly!"
