Holidays update

I can't believe it's been over a week since we landed in Portugal!

After a couple of lazy days to overcome the jet lag, the "race" to meet our closets family members and friends has started. Even though we knew we'll be staying a while, we've missed these people so much that we couldn't wait to hug them all.
I must admit I'm a bit tired of our busy social schedule, but it has been great to meet everyone, get to know the new babies and enjoy some great food and beautiful weather.

My baby niece was waiting for us at the airport and I couldn't believe that she recognised me from the countless skype sessions with my sister. She reached her little arms in my direction when she saw me coming and greeted me with the sweetest smile I've ever seen. I melt every time she says "olá" (hello), her first word. I wonder if I can get her to say "tia" (auntie) before I leave again.
Our 2 year old nephew has grown so much since the last time we've been together one year ago and we're trying to make up for the lost time with him too. He's becoming the sweetest little boy and we couldn't be more proud.

It's the peak of Summer here and we've been blessed with clear blue skies and a warm sun shining every single day. The weather is perfect for ice-creams and long afternoons on the beach and we are now starting to enjoy it all, after the initial rush.
This week is all about relaxing and enjoying Summer, before the big family events that we'll be attending and helping to plan. I'll write about the party decorations I'm helping with soon!
