When I wake up to rain, I always feel like its going to be a perfect day.  I know that this may sound odd, but I really, reeeeeeeally love the rain.  This past Friday was one such day and perfect it was.

This is how it rolled…  (in pictures)

For the record, I was not a part of this pack of steel clothed in skin but just a part of the cheering crowd witnessing this year’s Dubai Marathon.


You can’t see Mr. Yellow Shoes (Ethiopian runner – Haile Gebrselassie) clearly, but he came out on top of the pack!


And here is Mr. Yellow Shoes!  Now, that`s what I call a get-up!!

Fast forward to the same afternoon.  Not a cloud in sight,  only cool breezes with plenty-o-sunshine.  Perfect for a Party in the Park.


This little cutie turned one!


More birthday candles for the others who turned, um… more than one fer shuuure!


I hope that it rains every weekend.  I know that this statement is going to come and bite me… ask me if I still love the rain when we move to the Canadian Wet West Coast.

    Aww, happy birthday!

    Where do you live? The marathon ran the length of Jumeirah Beach Road right? And I work just on the corner of Al Thanya Street. Hey, we could meet up over coffee one of these days!
