Sooooooo, here at last is last weeks installment of our 366 adventure, now in Portugal. (Sorry it is so late, but you know/can imagine how it is with flying across an ocean with a two year old… on my own!) These are the photos of our first week here. If you remember, I flew to Lisbon to surprise my mother for her birthday. She loved her ‘present’ as we knocked on her door and waved a birthday card at her, saying ‘you just can’t trust the post these days, so we thought we’d deliver it ourselves!’ Alas, I failed to take the crucial ‘surprise face’ photo but I can reveal it looked much like this :O !!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, here’s what we got up to that week from packing to enjoying time with grandma and grandpa:
the day before our big adventure… here pictured chillin’ out and reading a good book, trying to create an oasis of calm energy in the midst of a sand-storm of activity and preparations for an 18 hour trip:
in the airport, with daddy (who drove us there and stayed to say bye-bye). We’ll miss you. See you in three weeks, daddy!!
in the airplane, watching ‘toons (an exciting treat):
connecting with Grammy after the big surprise arrival!
[you can see I have been enjoying that (lazy) iPhone ap :p ]
horrible self-portrait. hate it… but it is the best photo of a bad batch and I was having too much fun, catching up with my parents to slow down and think about photos. This was taken at a seafood restaurant we went to. Yumm!
still getting over our jet lag and settling in, this was taken when we went shopping for some basic goods at the local ‘mall’. I think this is pipoca’s first ever coin-operated ride :)
my little diva, singing her heart out at the breakfast table.
and later that day…
at a dinner party in celebration of grammy’s birthday!! (guess who ate the first bit – scooped right off with the fingers)
a day with old friends (who asked not to be shown :) but first, a tram ride (she loves it and enthusiastically calls it the ‘leletico’, instead of ‘electrico’ – sweet)
start the day with visit to cafe with grammy and friend (not shown)
then afternoon with vo-vo on the beach:
(yes, I am working a ‘theme’ with this one)
