I consider the first week back to school the week of madness! Getting the kids back in to a proper routine, early wake up calls and helping them have a smooth transition back into school is so overwhelming. How did you and your kids handle it ?
Of course part of our yearly tradition is taking a first day photos. This year instagram was over populated with proud mommies and daddies showing off their little ones going to school. I decided to do something different and I asked my kids what they wanted to be when they grow up ? I wrote them down on a piece of paper and had them take a picture with it. I think I’m going to keep doing this every year.
I asked Fizzle if he would like to ride a horse, he said: No, I want to ride a cow! :/ LOL!! I thought his cow phase was over, I guess it’s not!
We decided not to travel this Eid and head to Wafra instead. It was a great week filled with some old fashioned fun, yummylicious food and great weather. It got really cold at night but starting a fire always does the trick in keeping everyone warm and cozy. The kids had a fabulous time, running outside from sunrise to sunset and never getting tired of it. Bikes, scooters, hide and seek, bouncy castles, arts & crafts, you name it, they played it
Here are some shots taken during the week.
It was the perfect break! Hope you all had a fabulous holiday as well.

Nodi started his first riding lesson yesterday. He was so excited that he prepared everything he needed 2 days before his lesson *cute* . The class is 30 minutes which I think is perfect for his age. Throughout the lessons he will learn how to handle the horse, take directions from the trainer and gain confidence. The place is amazing, clean and has a nice calming atmosphere. I’m actually thinking of taking some classes myself.
Here are some snapshots of KRC.
I love how the weather is getting nicer and nicer each day. Now, the kids are able to go outside and play, finally! All the toys have been put outside so the kids can run and play around till their heart’s content. One toy in particular that I make sure is out is the bubble maker. I suggest every parent get one for their toddler. It kept Fizzle busy for so long and it seems like our dog is enjoying it as well.
It was McFizzle’s 2nd birthday last week. I can’t believe how big he is getting, mashala. I don’t care how cliché this sounds, MY BABY IS GROWING UP WAY TOO FAST!! *sobs* I’ll tell you a little something about Fizzle. He is in love with his crocs. They are the only shoes he will wear.
When we were choosing a theme for his birthday cake, Nodi came up with a great idea!
A crocs cake! How cute is this?! When Fizzle saw the cake he kept trying to take the crocs off to wear them lol
Thank you November Bakery for a delicious birthday cake!
