While attending the ABC silent auction and dinner several weeks ago I bought lots of raffle tickets= two different massages and a two free night stay at Hyatt Place in Dubai. We weren't sure when we could go before I was in the no fly zone time period. Our friend, Michael from Seattle, wasn't able to come visit us over Thanksgiving but Bill still had vacation time so we decided to cease the opportunity to take a mini vacation! 

Monday- Burj Khalifa, we soared up 125 floors in 60 seconds! The view was amazing! Afterwards we spent the day at The Dubai Mall...
Aquarium and Underwater Zoo (lots of sting rays, shark, crabs, and fish). Not to mention it had the largest viewing panel on earth! 
Dubai fountain at night (sprays of water over 150 meters in the air set to music- breathtaking!)  
Shopping also took place but mostly fun activities and new Legos! 

No trip is complete without a new stuffed animal  

After breakfast we explored the Dubai Museum, local shops and tea at a local tea house. Bill was a trooper to get in the cold pool water with Harrison, I thanked him for taking this one for the team! We debated about going to a Dolphin show or back to the mall for Harrison to explore and play at Kidzania. After reading both places reviews, Kidzania won and it was amazing! Harrison was able to train as a firefighter (included putting out a pretend building fire), construction worker, dentist, pilot, doctor, electrician, courier and newspaper deliverer. 
Check out the website at, it was an amazing four hours! 

Fireman was by far his favorite! 
After four hours of Kidzania we had a very tired boy on our hands! What a wonderful vacation!
