On January 23rd, 2012, my parents were able to come for their first visit overseas. This was the first time we have seen them since April 7th of 2010! This was also the first time for them to meet, hold, and love on their first grandbaby!
We saw an oasis in the middle of the desert and marveled at the centuries old "Thelij" system used to divert the scarce water to the land hat was being used to grow food.
We also visited a local park where a small cave is. The boys go o go "go-karting," which ended up being slow 4 wheelers!
The last three days of their visit, we went to the town where Grace was born to show them the hospital and a fort there,
Finally, on our last two days together, we took them to Dubai to see the many sights there! We took them to the Dubai Mall, the world's largest mall, and to At The Top, an elevator ride to (nearly) the top of the Burj Al Khalifa, the tallest building in the world! (Seen in the new Mission Impossible.)
Mom and Dad, we loved having you visit us! We can't wait until the next time you visit and we are living in a nice, big city!
