Truth 🐪 It never gets old. Our favourite Dubai family activity is the desert. From spontaneous desert sundowners to weekend camping, the whole family gets that giggy feeling about it. If you ask us individually we all have our own reasons.
Luella: sleeping in a tent, bomb fire, marshmallows, riding the quad...
Josefin: bouncy bouncy in Ruby (our jeep), rolling down the dunes with my friends, sleeping together, camels...
Me: the beauty of nature, no WiFi, sunset drink with friends, making the most of our Dubai life.
Hubby: pretty sure he would say everything of the above and his huqsvana ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you? Let me know - Do you like camping? Are you Dubai beach or desert? Love reading your answers... 😊 x
Happy Father’s Day 🇸🇪 Never too late ( yes it was yesterday but keeping track of celebration as an expat 🙄) and too often ... best thing about you as a hubby it’s you as their father. You rock our world daily! 👊🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As an expat which mother’s / father’s day do you follow? Uk like school? UAE? Your own countries? In our house we could celebrate Mother’s Day 4 times! 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ which is well deserved if you ask me... 😝how you do it friends? @mylittlelovesblog @butterflies_to_lashes @ginghamandsparkle @mom_in_dubai @jessiebio @astheygrow.me @sandrazachrisson @genyn24
When the stars aligned... and we are early on the school run. Celebrating with coffee, babyccinos and a selfie this morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Running usually late makes this little moments extra special. 🙌🏻 #schoolrun #coffeeonthego #parentingmemes #mamalove #itsthesmallthings #dubaikids #dubaimums #dubaimama
A bucket of water, soap and old rags. Easy and cost effective entertainment. Seriously feel like I was rocking motherhood... for like a moment. 🙈🤣#keepingkidsbusy #parentingmemes #parentingmadeeasy #dubaikids #outdoorfun what’s your kids favourite homemade activity?

Me: Ready to pack it all up tomorrow ... finally! 🙈🎃🤣🤗🦇👻👊🏻#Halloweendubai #halloweenisafamilyaffair #halloweennight #dubaikids
Just hanging out by the pool... with a 4 years old art dictator (I mean director 🙈🤣) who love taking photos. And I think she did pretty good actually... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Grateful reminder that we are so lucky that our Dubai weekends include palm trees, beach, swimming pool or desert! Like really never taking it for granted. Ever!

Also must share my favourite find this month. This @lemonmintdubai beach wrap - super easy, comfy and practical. Need to get myself another colour, love it so much.  One size only, 3 ways to wear it, and 15 flashy colours to choose from. Best beach cover up for the season! #dubaipool #dubaibeach #mamalove #dubaiweekend #lemonmintdubai #beachclothing #beachcoverup
and ... Big sister ... also into the Halloween mood. This Good Witch requested an Instagram post as well. Makeup contest going on between the sisters. Cute sibling rivalry 😉🦇👻🌚🖤🕷#halloweenmakeup #halloweencostume #halloweenready #halloweendubai #sisterlove #sisterrivalry #halloweenindubai #dubaikids #raisinggirls
Little Jo ... Thinking hocus-pocus and practicing bewitched tricks this afternoon. Girls will be witches again this Halloween, with a little help from @daiso_japan_me 😉 👻🕷🌚🕸🦇 what about your little ones? Goblins? Dracula? Pumpkin? Superhero? 🖤
This make my heart swell a little... just came across this pic from my camera roll from last weekend. ✨ Little Jo: Everyday I remind myself to let you go a little, to let you be you. I often struggle finding the balance between boundaries and freedom, between setting limits while encouraging independence. Because you are strong-willed I must hang on for the ride and resist the temptation to tame your spirit. Mamas out there how are you doing it? ✨ For now, I find peace in our desert sundowners seeing you running wild. So happy outdoor season is on! #dubailove #dubaifamily #dubaidesert #mydubai #parentingstruggles #strongwilledchild #parentinglife #dubaimama
