June Fun

There was a lot going on in June - the month kicked off with the girls' superhero birthday party, and right after was an Eid holiday from school that we didn't travel for, but opted to have a staycation with friends. Then we had our first non-family visitor, Cindy, who also came to visit us in Norway and took a trip to Poland with me. All of that combined with end of year madness, Madi's actual birthday, and catching up with friends made the month fly by quite quickly!

Our Eid staycation was at the Ritz Carlton and was lovely! The pool was fantastic and the kids all get along so well. We were able to hang and visit after bedtime and enjoyed the mini vacay in Doha.

During Cindy's visit we got to do some hanging out and some touristy things. We visited a few museums, including the newly opened National Museum of Qatar, which the girls loved. They were still on school break most of her visit so there was some arts and crafts, playing, and pool along with it.

  1. Cheesecake and cake for breakfast. Sometimes you just have to say "yes". 
  2. Painting cupcakes they molded. 
  3. Enjoying the museum.
  4. Family pool time with the unicorn. 
  5. Dress up day at school for these three during the Fun Week before term ended.
  6. Practicing her Elsa moves.
  7. Taking Cindy out to enjoy the Doha sunset.
  8. We cleaned and sorted our massive shell collection to make these displays. 
  9. Delicious coffee with friends before departing for the summer. 

  1. Madi looking too grown up on her bicycle.
  2. Pajama dat at school with the matching animals.
  3. Name took the girls to Bounce for their birthday present and had a blast.
  4. Real life at 33 years old.
  5. Playdate fun with this crew.
  6. We enjoyed seeing Toy Story 4 after binge watching the first three, haha.
  7. Jason's been collecting money from each country we visited after seeing our friend Cindy's display and wanting to do something similar. We found this vintage coffee table made out of a door that's perfect!
  8. Last swim lesson for the summer!
  9. Delicious pork green chili because sometimes you just need a taste of America. 

We also celebrated Father's Day (a day early since Sunday is the start of the work week). Last month the school hosted a Father's Breakfast so most of these pics are from that, but we made Jason breakfast and the girls made cards for him.

  1. The girls parent watch gymnastics and certificates for the year.
  2. The gymnastics crew.
  3. The girls have conned us into doing evening walk/bike rides together. It's a sweaty mess since the temps have been in the 110's here lately, but we've obliged for now. 
  4. CeCe snuggles.
  5. Ms Attitude! She's got the best poses and is a natural. 
  6. Madi had a final playdate with this friend who is leaving Doha and will be greatly missed.
  7. I got not one, but two nights out this month - say what?! The first was checking out Nobu and catching a beautiful sunset.
  8. The second was hitting up Morimoto with these ladies.
  9. Who made us do shots. I do not like shots. 

The girls had their last day of school this month as well. I cannot believe how much they've grown in the past year!

It's been a busy, but fun June and we are excited to spend a couple more weeks in Doha before heading to America for a few weeks to catch up with more family and friends!
