Yippie, They're Heeeere!
After two days on the rotator the Childers clan finally arrived in the Kingdom of Bahrain at 10:30 AM Thursday May 6th! Jet lagged, tired, hungry, loaded down with 7 pieces of luggage and two car seats they were ready for some rest!
What a Welcoming Committee we were! Katy and I dressed in our "Friday Best" and met them in our new abayas (robes) and hejabs (head scarves) with the flower Bump-It, big sunglasses and all... All Hollie could say was "Oh My God, PLEASE tell me we don't HAVE to wear those things!" Yeah, our silly stunt worked! We quickly assured her that they were purchased just for fun for their arrival and then Paul made us change before we "scared the girls" (laugh).
With a stop at McDonald's for 2 Happy Meals we were off to take them to their home away from home (at least for the next 45 days)... YUP! You guessed it - The Marriott. They slept the rest of the day and Paul picked them up for dinner at the Flusche Villa for some mean take out pizza (only the best for our guests - laugh).
