We Made it to Dubai

Welp, Beth and I finally made it to Dubai. We boarded the plane at 6 p.m. on Wednesday in Houston. The flight was originally supposed to take off at 6:50 p.m. but didn't end up leaving until about 7:30 p.m. We then flew 8,400 miles and over 14 hours to Dubai. When we landed, it took another 20 minutes to get off of the plane and then we had to board a bus which finally took us to the terminal. All included, we spent over 16 hours on the plane. Needless to say, we were ready to get off when we finally got here. The flight wasn't too bad except for the fact that it took over 2 and a half hours to get served food. There were so many "special" meal requests, that Beth and I were in the minority when it came to getting our food. But we finally got it after I had a few choice words with the flight attendant.

My parents met us at the airport and then we went out to dinner before coming home. Our dog Biemmer was here to meet us and it was really good to see him since I hadn't seen him in almost 3 years. But he hasn't changed much. Still wants to jump on top of you and lick your face as much as possible and then of course he gets tired and takes a nap. What a rough life.

In about an hour we are going to Sean and Kelsey's graduation. Wow, I can't believe they are graduating. I'm starting to feel old. We've had a fun day so far. We woke up and went to the Mall of the Emirates(the mall with the indoor ski slope). After that, we went and had brunch at the Grand Hyatt. Beth and I had the stupidity of going running. Not smart at all. We ended up run/walking a little over 5 miles in 110 degree heat. Did I mention 80% humidity? Yeah, not a good idea. I'll try to throw some pictures on here soon. We are going to Abu Dhabi tomorrow and then heading to Oman on Monday. Can't wait!
