Al Ain Zoo Trip

Yesterday we took Izzy to the zoo in Al Ain. Al Ain is about 1 hour away by car and is considerably warmer. The zoo did not open until 4 pm and we arrived around 5 pm. During the day it had reached a high of about 120 degrees and had dropped to about 115 by the time we arrived. Enjoy the pictures of Izzy's pink little cheeks. She was slathered with sunscreen and was not sunburned at all. She just suffers from the rosy cheeks that we pale people suffer from as well.
Stay tuned for pictures from our Sir Bani Yas trip. We will be leaving in one week and are so excited. We will be able to see giraffes and Arabian wildlife in the wild. Not to mention the fact that we will be staying at a luury resort.
Also, the countdown begins for our trip back to California. We will be leaving July 28th.
Love, love, love


  1. You adventures sound out of this world. I am glad you are kind of settling in. I am enjoying being able to read about how it is going. Izzy is absolutely adorable!!

  2. What kind of place doesn't open till 4 p.m.?

  3. They wait until the hottest part of the day is over: 12-4pm before they open.
