Where shall we go?

So today is third day of Eid… the Eid rituals of visiting families and getting visited by all the "ma7arem" finished… we were thinking yesterday that hooray… we have the third day of Eid all to ourselves… it is 4,00 o'clock and we have been thinking for the past 5 hours after we finished breakfast about a proper place where we can go with the "kids", who are 2 and 7 months old… we called some friends for suggestions and they all said one thing… everywhere is busy… there is no where u can go during Eid… everywhere, by the way, is a bunch of fastfood restaurants with play grounds, Mc, BurgerKing and the like, some Shami food restaurants, Mais Elreem and Tawa6een ElHawa, and Amman Mall's DreamPark… mmm… what else??
So that is it… we decided what to do! Stay home… Fry chicken and some potato and watch a movie… That is all what this country offers us during the Eid… no wonder half the Ammanites are in Sharm and Beirut… Happy Eid, Jordan!

We went to the mall last night, which is what many Muslims in the West do. We tried to go to "Chucky Cheese" a pizza place that has games and stuff for the kids, but our 16 month old, for some reason, all of a sudden decided he was scared of the place.

Ah kids, the phases they go through. He was scared of elevators for a week, of the bath for a week, I am sure this will be the same.

Eid mubarak.

When you have kids the options are scarce. You can go to Dream park in C Town and then continue to another fast food restaurant in Gardens street and then go and sleep. This is Jordan!

Alex: Thanks for passing by!

Abu Sinan: My 2 year old was afraid of the shower doe a couple of weeks as well... what happens exactly with those little somethings?

Batir: exactly! and dream park was jammed with children, I could not even breathe in there! (I just went up to check bcoz I was curious... I was not playing there!) and the fast food restaurants were offering cold, inedible food stuff, that is if u were lucky to order and eat ON THE SAME DAY...

Happy Belated Eid..
staying home sometimes is much more relaxing than going out. at least the kids will not know the difference, since yours are still very young. little things will make them happy. this way you rested and relaxed at home while everyone else was dealing with traffic and cranky kids!! good choice.
