They're Here!

Just in case anyone was worried, it was MY fault for forgetting to send out an email last night letting everyone know that Mimi and Papa made it here just fine. They arrived in good spirits and looking way more healthy than I would have expected (Or IIII looked!) after such a long time travelling. They got a good night's sleep and woke up early with us on our time, so it looks like they already adjusted pretty well!

Now we are just hanging out and letting them recover from their long trip. This morning we took a walk and Mimi and got to try out her first Arabic version of Cottage Cheese (which is a little more pureed and harder chunks than normal) with our peaches we found for her! Papa had some yogurt and a banana and I forced myself not to have the Oreos they brought us for breakfast! Instead, I had CHOMPIE'S BAGELS(!!!) which they got through customs just fine. I thought it rather humorous that they brought Jewish bagels into a Muslim country. They were perfect, just as I'd remembered!

Tonight we plan to take them to the Lebanese Flower Restaurant for dinner followed by a trip to Dubai tomorrow! We'll be sure to keep this updated on the goings on while they are here!


  1. Yay!! Glad they made it safely!

    Enjoy your time together!

  2. You guys have a GREAT time together. I'm so glad they made it ok and are resting up after that trip. The idea alone of that many hours on a plane makes me break out in hives! Tell them I love them!
