Albufeira July 2017

We spent another fun, hot and relaxing week in Portugal. We were there in 2015 and loved it and this time was no different. Well, it was a little different. It was hotter and the children were a wee bit bigger. 
And we had air conditioning. 
We ate loads of piri piri chicken and fresh fish and drank a whole lot of vinho verde. 
We let the kids stay up way later than at home and played on the beach when the sun went down. 
Miraculously the children decided that they actually like each other and got on really well together. They shared a room and they slept! It was so sweet listening to them chat with each other before they fell asleep at night!

 'The scary mans' The Caretos de Podence were at the festival for two nights and terrified Amy and Tom. Poor Tom had laughed at them from a distance until one came up to him and he screamed, terrified. He spoke of them for the rest of the holiday and when we got home.

'The hill' at Aylesbury

The children got some fresh air and a wee bit of sunshine on their first day of summer holidays.
Hooray for summer holidays!

Little butterfly

Amy wanted her face painted for the first time on the weekend! She asked to be a butterfly and she sat really nicely to get it done. She was so pleased with it :)

Preschool sports day!

She did really well! And she had fun too!
It was so cute watching them all race, bounce a ball, go through the obstacle course and bounce with bean bags!
Nana and daddy came to watch too.
She got out of school once they'd all got their medals and nana took us for ice creams and to the park before needing to go back to Ballymena to get James.
We spent the rest of the day in the garden with the paddling pool and ice pops.
It feels like summer.
