wander & capture: photo friday in abu dhabi with a toddler

I wondered how long it would take me to skip my weekly blogs, and here I am. I didn't forget though. They haunted me at night as I waited to share the reason. The thing is, we had guests over for 10 days. My sister-in-law came to visit with her 7 y.o. daughter. We managed to take them to a new place almost everyday. Here is how we did 10 days in Abu Dhabi with a toddler.

С первого дня блога я задумалась, на сколько меня хватит прежде, чем я пропущу свои еженедельные выпуски. Вот так это и бывает. Но я не забывала. Я думала о них постоянно - даже во сне - и ждала, когда наконец смогу поделиться причиной. Дело в том, что к нам приезжали гости на 10 дней - сестра мужа с семилетней дочкой. Мы старались возить их в новое место почти каждый день. Вот наши 10 дней в Абу-Даби с ребенком.

Our pool was a hit in between our trips!

Apparently, "Monster High" dolls are now in. We looked all over Abu Dhabi and Dubai for them and never found them. So, our toddler settled for "Pocket Polly" instead. Frankly, I like em much better! =))

Art Cafe at Old Town Dubai in Bastakiya showed off some of their possessions right at the door.

Lovely place where we could hide from the sun and relax. Our kid was bird watching and ship photographing while we waited for the food...which was absolutely yummy! And there's hubby's head. Oops! =PP

Here I am =))

Largest mall in the world. Crazy!

In Sheikh Zayed Museum guest book our girl wrote: "I was here. I liked it. 15 April 2013. Abudhabi I <3. Maria. Hello from Moscow." How cute is that? =))

There are still things to see and places to go here in Abu Dhabi, and of course in UAE. We'll be waiting for our dear guests to visit again! Will you be traveling to the region any time soon?

Еще много интересного можно посмотреть и посетить здесь в Абу-Даби, и конечно в ОАЭ. Мы будем ждать наших гостей снова! Не собираетесь ли вы посетить регион в ближайшее время?
