dubai in photos

we were in dubai last week for the wedding of a dear friend. dubai is not a place i would have had on my list of must see places but i'm glad we had the experience and i'm so glad that the babes were with us. the wedding was beautiful, the bride was stunning, the groom and his family remain some of my favorite people on the earth, and the food was insanely good. we left the kids with oma and opa for the wedding and mama and papa got all dolled up and went on a proper date. the whole family came along for the brunch the next day and it was so relaxed and lovely. side note: arabic music should be played at every wedding (so much fun to dance to) and day after wedding brunches are always a good idea. here are some photos of our time there.
