One of the things we did while we were in Saudi was dig for sand roses. You’ve probably never heard of sand roses, I never had. Here’s the wikipedia article – here. It doesn’t say much and I still have no idea how they form, but they are like rocks, made out of sand, that you can dig and find. And they look like roses, kind of.

We went with several friends to a traditional Arabic dinner, called Kapsa. The room was AWESOME and with kids, I wish every restaurant was like this Smile It was a big, bright, empty room with pillows around the sides. Perfect for running, playing, and building forts, which Piper and her new bff Jordan did a lot of.



When it was time to eat they came in with a big plastic tarp and taped it to the ground. DSC_0090DSC_0091DSC_0096


It was chicken and rice, soup, hummus YUM-O! And so fun to spread out an the floor and eat. We ate with forks but traditionally they eat with their hands. They each take a section of the big dish, ball us the rice in their hands and throw it in their mouth with a piece of chicken. This was another favorite from the trip.
