on the golden beach in portugal
we spent a long weekend in the algarve region of portugal. this trip included some misadventures and some sickness, but also lots of sun and sand and stunning beauty.
^^ i couldn't love these selfies more if i tried. ^^
^^ gotta love it when the stranger you ask to snap a photo covers up the spectacular background with your bodies ;) and the photo captures some funny faces on the kids! ^^
on our first evening in portugal - after a bit of exploring and splashing at praia da marinha (^^) - we experienced a truly magical sunsetty hour at the beach just down the path from our airbnb. it was one of those perfect slices of life that's just glowing with goodness and simple joy. moses was freaking out excited about everything (as you can tell by these photos!), exuberantly saying "beaaaaach!" and throwing his arms in the air over and over. little gabriel was as smiley as can be. and ian and i were glad.
^^ another pretty failed attempt at a family photo taken by a stranger ;) ^^
the algarve is amazing!
