Nathan is first out in our family birthday calendar, and lucky him, his birthday fell on a Friday this year - AND he was off work!
Birthday singing, balloons, morning coffee and gifts in bed. This year he got one big present only, but quite a good one, a new ipad and keyboard. He was happy!
For celebrating we had decided to go to Dubai and have lunch with our ex-door-neighbours McGeehees, now that there is no more border and everything is a lot more easier traveling there and back. Can you believe it, twice in one week for me; and for the kids, first time back to Dubai in almost two years!
They took us to their favourite restaurant Pangolin, which is in the Els Club in Dubai Sports City. What a treat!
We ate and ate and ate... this place make almost everything in-house, all their own cheese, mustards, dry aged charcuterie, sausages and so on. We had a fantastic meal, I forgot to take any photos of it all, but it ended with this spectacular dessert for me, a 'Snow Dome'. The others all had a decadent chocolate cup filled with marshmallows, ice cream and chocolate cake - which was even better..! Amazing!
Then we spent the rest of the afternoon on their sofa trying to digest it all... ha ha! The kids were all so happy to see each other again after all this time.
