Saturday at Safa Park

photo (71)

I’m quite happy with the weather right now and on top of it, the extra day off that my company implemented since December of last year. I used to work six days a week, with only Friday and Saturday afternoon off (I work on Saturdays from 9 am to 1:30 pm) and have been jealous of other working moms who has more weekend time than I do. I’ve been really jealous of people who has two full days off for the weekend. I prayed for it.

It took seven years to have my wish granted.

An extra day off only means one thing for me: extra time with my kids.

Pristine attends Japanese language classes (to brush up on her Japanese language as it has started to deteriorate since our relocation here) on Saturdays near Safa Park, one of Dubai’s very big, very green parks. Now that I am off on Saturdays too, I thought it would be nice to take Benjamin out to run in the park, with just the green grass beneath and the sky above him. Just run wild, like what 2 year old boys do. All. The. Time.

And the weather in Dubai is really nice at this time of the year.

He tried all the different slides. The blue one…

Got hooked with the swing.

And generally had a lot of fun. I had a blast as well – nothing makes a mom happy than seeing her little one smiling like this.

His favorite slide – the purple one. The one that drops higher and the one where he gets to slide down with me!

I won’t lie, it was a bit exhausting to chase him around and go up and down the high slides but it was totally worth it. Last night, he scrolled through the photos and videos I took from my phone and said, “park, park!” I can tell he wants to go there again – so off we’re going again before it gets too hot!

This was the highlight of my weekend, what’s yours?
