Father's Day Weekend 2012

We were so lucky for Father's Day weekend that it fell on an unexpected school holiday!  Heather was able to come over and spend the night Wednesday night, and then I got to leave school at 9:00 on Thursday morning.  We headed over to Muscat for a 4-day weekend and Steph was able to get her first real visit to Oman!!
Started the weekend with a late birthday cake for Heather. 
It's "Happy Bird-Day!"

We stayed at the Barr Al Jissah resort in Muscat.  It has 3 parts, and we stayed in the family part, Al Waha.  We were able to get a family suite, so it was really reasonably priced and fun to all get to be together.

                                               This is the entrance to the whole complex.


This is looking from our balcony out toward the sea and the adult part of the resort up on the cliffs.

Although we stayed in the family section, we spent most of our time at the middle section of the resort, Al Bandar.  The beach there was almost deserted, and we had very few "neighbors" while sitting in our chairs looking out at the water.....ah....relaxation.  The staff came around periodically to bring us coolers with iced-down water bottles, cold washcloths for refreshing, and delicious platters of freshly cut fruit......NICE!!!

The water was just cold enough to be refreshing!

Couldn't get my camera flash to work right for night photos, so this is using Cory's phone as a flashlight---ha-ha!!  This is looking back at our hotel from across the bay.  There was a great paved walkway that was perfect for evening strolls.

Chess Board with a great view!

Turtle nests
Kim and Cory got to go scuba diving.  This was Kim's first dive, and he was SO excited to see turtles, eels, a leopard shark, and MANY different varieties of fish and coral.



What will I see??

Almost ready!

Well, the girls are smiling!

Happy Father's Day from your 2 girls!
