Al Manara Fire Station Birthday Party Dubai

How cool is that?? I had no idea I could throw a birthday party at a REAL fire station!! So initially we had agreed on a staycation with Adam and something super small with the family. Then literally 3 weeks before his birthday, his highness decides he wants a party!

I tried to keep it to myself as much as I could but then some days I just couldn’t and I would just vent out to my husband or mother. Trust me, we were excited about having another baby and Adam having a little brother/sister to play with, but we were too worried and scared to see it clearly then. Actually I think just me.
