Movie Monday

Oh what to do, what to do on a windy Monday morning… well, in Leighton’s world we head down to the beach with a playgroup to hang out next to the Burj al Arab…. You know, same old boring stuff. It's times like this that make me stop and remind myself that I freaking live in Dubai... how lucky am I?!

Sorry for the wind noise on the video!  I didn’t realize it at the time but there are a few ladies in national dress behind Leighton… still makes me laugh to see those outfits at the beach!

Until Later…

Leighton has a new favorite place to go… the Dubai Mall Aquarium!

It holds the Guinness world record for the largest acrylic panel… LAME… but the aquarium is awesome!  There are so many different species of fish, sharks, stingrays and eel… OH MY!  it is pretty amazing!  Sucky thing is you cannot go right up to the front glass without paying an entry fee, which would get pretty pricey since we go there a lot.  However, now that I am a Dubai insider I know the trick to the aquarium…  if you go up to the second floor you can walk along the back side of the aquarium and get right up to the glass and stay as long as you want… or should I say as long as Leighton wants!  We go about once a week and girlfriend loves it! 

Kind of makes me feel bad for all the kids in Austin that just get to stare at the puny little fish tank in Barton Creek Mall!   Bless their little hearts…

I have discovered that little Miss Leighton loves to swing! 
Here is a snippet from our last park trip!
