"Double your pleasure,
Double your fun" - Doublemint Gum

This last weekend, we attended the first ever X2 Twins Festival in the Middle East.  Held at Safa Park in Dubai, it was a big gathering of lots of twins, triplets, and other multiples of all ages.  It was fascinating and fun. The kids got to play and Yvonne got to ogle at lots of other twins and share parenting stories with lots of other mothers who have "double the trouble, but double the fun."

The girls are a bit small for their age and Talon is energetic for his, so we got a few comments about how cute our triplets are.  We corrected some, but at times just smiled and said that so many kids so close together are a lot of work ;)

The highlight for the kids was a dangerously steep inflatable slide that had no supervision and resulted in a fair amount of bonked heads and tears shed... but also a lot of big smiles.

Here are some snapshots of the fun:


  1. Cool, what a fun event for the girls to be able to go too. The slide looks awesome too.

  2. This is hilarious! I didn't know they had things like this. . . my favorite is how all the sets are holding hands! So cute!

  3. What a great event! I was so glad you had video #2 so we could see Talon coming down. What a brave little guy and super cute. I felt like I was living the experience and would have said all the things Yvonne said in the background. You'll probably be going to more of these in the future. Make sure you always post pictures. Its so fun to see so many sets of twins together at one time.
