Fantastic three weeks!
This was the first time that I felt that my children could truly appreciate Portugal.
Having my son-in-law, Michael, with us, made it even more special. 
We felt very proud to show him, as well as our own children, our native country, our roots. Everyone had a great time! 
Not only did we enjoy being with our family,
we also had the opportunity to show our kids Portugal from North to South. 
We went as far north as Guimarães, seeing also,  Porto, Coimbra, Fátima, etc. 
Then we went south, through Evora to Algarve where we spent one week. 
We could see how proud my parents and my brother Renato and family
were to see how everyone enjoyed this stay. 
After 2 weeks the "young ones" returned home to the USA. 
Stella and I stayed for an extra week, to be a bit longer with my parents.
Great memories !
