something new.

One thing you need to get used used to in living here is a lot of the same. same food. same weather. same stuff to do. Now, amazing crystal blue ocean swimming is not hard to get used to just to be clear but we do tend to long for change. We long for something new and dare I say a bit exciting (ya know besides having our water pump break or killing mice in our house which qualifies as exciting for sure just not fun). Jason found out about an exposition in town put on by some folks from Oman. Many come here this time of year to escape the heat there...snow birds in reverse if you will. They were hosting a cultural exchange in town and sponsoring tons of events. There was free admission to the museum in town, free henna, free writing your name in Arabic, yeah all sorts of fab stuff and if you know us we dig free! The funny thing was nothing was particularly awesome but it was different and new and that my friends is enough for us. And we loved a family day out. Just us enjoying town.

I'm picturing Anni twirling all over town in her dress. My mom says that my sister and I only wanted "spinny" skirts when we were kids. You know, the ones that come up when you twirl. We used to test them in the dressing room first. Haha!

Fun day - I love Anni's dress - especially the turquoise straps :) Evy is looking pretty cute these days with more hair on her head!
