Birthday/Earth Day

This is the secret teaser post. I have a lot more pictures to post, but they are currently on Travis' computer, so I put these few, and I'll let you know when the rest are up, edited, etc. Just thought I would give you something.

We had a different Easter dress for Leoni, but since she is on the small side, she doesn't fit into it yet. Luckily, she just started to fit into this one, so it became her lovely Easter dress. Travis & I colored some eggs, and Leoni decided they tasted good, so they didn't last long in the shots with the dress. They weren't colorfast. Needless to say, we made use of the water station at the park.

The Corniche Park (don't know if that is an official name) has lovely views of the bay on one side

And views of the city on the other

However, this is one of my favorite views

Like father...

I guess Leoni is learning to enjoy the finer things of life, like 8-bit Nintendo.

There are a couple areas on the Women's Campus for dropping off and picking up students. The minimum age for driving in Qatar is 18, and many of the students start their studies at 17. Also, in a society that is known by some to be somewhat protective of its women, a lot of the female students don't drive. Some girls ride a university-provided shuttle bus to campus. Most have drivers or family members bring them. But, only in a country that has reached unimaginable wealth in such a short time would one see a Rolls-Royce waiting to pick up a university student. Well, maybe a student from the Upper East Side would be picked up in a Rolls, XOXO.
