Day trip to Bahrain

Last Friday we decided to head to Bahrain for the day. We normally go for the weekend and spend the night but decided to make a quick trip and we had so much fun. We will for sure be doing more single day trips in the future.

We visited Ric's for breakfast which is our usual stop for our bacon and good Texas style breakfast! I love the breakfast burrito is probably one of the best I have ever had! 

We originally planned on taking the kids to a water park but we had a bike accident the night before which required Peyton to visit the ER and have some glue and tape on her chin which meant no water. Instead we paid a visit to Build a Bear and she picked out a pink bear which she named Emma.

After Build a Bear we walked around the mall a little bit and looked in some stores and then came by the movie theatre. We saw that Madagascar 3 was showing and debated whether or not to give it a try with Graham. We decided to go for it and off we went....

And then Graham and John left shortly after this picture and after the movie started (about 5 minutes total). Graham had no interest in sitting still and it was not going to work. So, the boys left and went shopping for electronics. Peyton and I LOVED the movie! It is one of my favorite kids movies by far and it was so much fun. The last time I was in a movie theatre was before we had Graham so it was long overdue and I enjoyed seeing it with Peyton.

When we got out we found John and Graham who had found John's Father's Day gift...a Bose Sound System for his iPod. I was struggling with what to buy him, he was struggling with deciding what he wanted so I was happy to see he found something for himself and finally spoiled himself instead of always buying stuff for us. We spent the rest of the day wandering around and then headed back. It was  a nice short break from Saudi and a Friday trip I see us doing often when we return.
