The three things that stood out most for the boys were boating, building a tree house, and spending time with their cousins. They were able to spend a lot of quality time with loved ones, which is why going to Colorado is so important to us.
While in Colorado, Owen got to participate in a week long soccer camp, which he adored. He has a lot of passion for the sport, and we are happy to foster it. Then we went to a hot spring with some good friends for some quality no cell service time. We also got to go to a few Sky Sox games to enjoy some low key baseball. The boys each got a foul ball!
Ok. So maybe our Colorado Summer wasn't as mellow as I thought...
Now back to Abu Dhabi for our third year!
Day 13: We drove back out to the Al Wathba area to show off the Wetlands Reserve which is home to thousands of flamingos every winter. We had a nice 3km walk around the reserve and saw quite a few flamingos. We spent the afternoon resting--the boys have been going pretty hard every day while Oma and Opa have been here.
