Wild Wadi Waterpark! Best EVER!

While in Dubai, we went to Wild Wadi Waterpark that has the scariest, best water ride ever called Jumeira Sceira! Lennon and Luca (who is 6) were the first to go on it- how brave! You step into an enclosed tube, a woman’s voice counts slowly backwards “3, 2, 1” – then the floor swooshes out from under you and you shoot straight down this crazy steep slide!!!! Loved it! We were so happy that Pierre and Florence let Luca miss a day of school for a day of righteous fun!!! Now that’s what I call good parenting. Jules was sick (huge bummer!) and Clement is too small.
I know our paths will cross again for more fun- we’ll make sure of that.

Good buddies. Emerson loved sitting next to Clement on car rides.

Clement loves to say “La!” all the time. We have since left Dubai, but we still keep saying it. Jules, Luca and Clement- you guys rock! Thanks for making our time in Dubai so fun!!!!!

We didn’t do any shopping- we loved just strolling around and taking it all in!

“If we are not ashamed to think it, we should not be ashamed to say it.” -Cicero

For me, Pierre was a breath of fresh air! Emerson got a kick out of him, too. We both found ourselves laughing at so many of his comments- so authentic and honest. What an inspiration! 🙂
His wife, Florence is incredible, too. She is the epitome of a multi-tasker. She took such good care of all of us! And their kids are so fun!!!! What a family. Thank you all. We felt so at home! Love!

Bienvenue a Dubai!

The Barrieu Famille welcomed us to Dubai with open arms and gave us the magic carpet treatment. We felt like Arabian royalty. And the kids were so happy to see some old friends, Jules and Luca, and to meet Clement.
