The Saaps, day 2

On their second day, I took Nicole and Gemma to the Yas Mall. Nicole did her shopping, and Gemma, well - she was actually very patient, and very well behaved, considering we were there basically all day until we had to pick up the kids from school.

After we had picked the kids up, us girls went to the Emirates Park Zoo. Believe it or not, but it was actually raining. What is it with visitors and rain?! Luckily it was just a few drops here and there, so it didn't disturb our visit.

The Emirates Park Zoo is situated about 15 minutes from us, on the way to Dubai. We hadn't been there yet, but it was a nice little zoo. You could buy food for the animals, to add an extra dimension to your visit. Unfortunately they were out of 'monkey nuts' (...) so we just got some grass.

The girls then had a great time walking around feeding the different animals, there were a lot of different goats, zebras, camels, monkeys and many more animals that wanted some grass:

One part of the park was filled with different birds, and parrots. Here we are doing a group selfie with the talking parrots!


We also got to help feed the baby goats with milk, they were thirsty! And so cute!

Linnea and Gemma met a magician and got to see some magic tricks. They were mighty impressed when he made balls disappear in front of their eyes, and changed the colours of cards.

Nicole's favourite part was to feed this giraffe. It was so close we could touch it.

Linnea had a staring competition with an emu:

Our girls looking very trendy in some of the new clothes bought earlier that morning! How grown-up are they..!

In the evening we met with the boys at the roller coaster restaurant back at the mall. Another cool must when you visit here in Abu Dhabi.

What a great day!
