Noah Alexander’s Christening.

It was finally time for our Noah Bear to be Christened.  I half expected him to shout at the Priest for pouring ‘water’ over him but he was the perfect gentleman. He sat on our knees throughout the ceremony, with just a few shouts and giggles, but thankfully no tears…or unusual smells. The Priest was really nice, funny and helped put all the mums and dads minds at ease. I was a little put off though as he continuously referred to Noah as Nora. It must have been the bonnet.

His gown came from Mexico and I just loved it – I couldn’t take enough pictures.

Here are some of the many photos from the day…

Portugal {Part II}

A little late posting this, but better late than never…

Our trip to Portugal continued the way it started – lots of time outdoors swimming, enjoying the sun and the beautiful scenery.

Apart from it’s magnificent weather and beaches, I am also in complete awe of the Algarve’s architecture. Almost every single house we came across, was beautiful in it’s own way – no two the same. Most are white, or light pastel colours with turrets and arches, pools, balconies and roof terraces. All different shapes, some old and quaint and some super modern.

I could have spent hours walking around the roads taking photos of the houses. Sadly, I was very conscious I may have been reported to neighbourhood watch and been taken in to the local police station for questioning on suspicious behaviour.

On the subject, does anyone have an opinion on this? Can you take photos of an amazing house(s)? Can you walk around a neighbourhood with a camera? If you are clearly on holidays?

I do regret now not taking tons of photos, but at least I could take them of my family without my motives being questioned.

A few photos from our walks…
