Hello, welcome to Matt and Katie's Blog! We originally started this for our friends and families, and to help acclimate to the desert heat. It's taken on a life of its own, and we're now using it to share the best of what we see, point out our mistakes, and, with any luck, help others around us THRIVE. Enjoy!

Never Too Old for Mommy!
Mommy is here! Lisa and I are so excited that she has finally made the trip to Dubai, and is our first official visitor. We are having such a great time having her here, we are going to barricade the door when she tries to leave! In her words she "feels like she is on another planet" but is "loving every minute of it". Lisa and I are soaking up all mothering that we can take. We've been running her around town to see all the sites and pick up a few great meals in between. In a surprise twist we also ran into my second cousin Jim, who is in the Navy. Turns out that his ship was docked in Dubai just for the day and we ran into at the mall. Small world after all! Our first dinner at Mango Tree in Souk alBahar Running into cousin Jim at the Mall of the Emirates! Dinner at Restaurant Nineteen at the Emirates Golf Club
