"Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Whitney, happy birthday to you!"
We can hardly believe that our little Whitney is 17! Her birthday week-end started out with her going with some friends to Rashid mall to eat sushi then swimming at one of the friends compounds in Khobar. She had a great time. Thursday morning (which is like Saturday in the U.S.) the girls from church "kidnapped" her and one of their leaders cooked breakfast. They nabbed her at 6:30 a.m. Couldn't believe they could all get up that early!! When she got back we headed to Bahrain. We went to one of the malls and saw a movie. We saw "Knowing" with Nicolas Cage. It was pretty good, just a bit weird. But we enjoyed it. Left there and found a restaurant called Ric's that we've been looking for everytime we go to Bahrain. This time we had better directions and actually found it. It's a restaurant that all the American's like to go to. They have a Louisiana Cajun Shrimp night, Texas BBQ night, etc. It was really good. We also met another family in there that lives near us in Aramco and we enjoyed visiting with them. Left there and Brad and Evan needed to check out a scuba dive shop then we headed home. We got on the causeway around 8:00 and it only took us maybe 45 minutes to get back into Saudi. Not bad at all. The traffic is usually terrible on weekends. When we got home I made Whitney the cheesecake she requested and we went to bed.
Happy 17th, Sweetie! We love you tons!
