There was a fundraiser at the kid’s school Friday night. It was called Picnic in the Park and it was fabulous! There were picnic tickets for 40 dhs or buffet tickets for 70 dhs. The picnic gave you hot dogs/shwarma and a drink. The buffet was catered by one of the hotels and gave you the ability to eat inside. We bought one buffet and 4 picnic tickets so we could sample some of the inside food but we all ate outside with friends on blankets. There were a few hundred people there and I forgot my camera in the car.
They had a bouncy house and a bouncy slide and a few games for the kids. There was a big stage set up with live music playing and kids singing songs all night long. There was also a raffle going on. I bought 10 tickets and won 3 things. Not too bad! I got a gold/gemstone bangle, Entertainer Book (for this year – so only good for 2 1/2 more months) and 3 passes to Action Zone along with a voucher for something there. I was pretty happy!
The kids had a blast. They were sweaty messes by the time we left. Bella spent most of the night being chased by 6 boys from her class. Great. Alexander spent most of the time playing soccer. Cameron went on the slide and the bouncy house and ran circles around and played with a couple of his friends.
All in all it was a fantastic time.
