Today we took the kids into Porto, the second largest city in Portugal. We went in search of the Largest Christmas Tree in Europe, but I think Lisbon won that bid this year, so we ended up 'wax skating', bouncy jumping, playing in snow bubbles and eating at the Imperial McDonald's. Even though our van worked just fine, we stopped at a metro station (subway) so the kids could enjoy their first ever ride. We took the metro right into the middle of the city. As soon as we got on and it took off, all the kids went flying backwards about 5 feet and went crashing to the ground. I was laughing so hard I couldn't help any of them up. Metros don't mess around! It was obvious to everyone that we weren't from around those parts!!
The girls skating on wax....when they fell they had bits of wax all over them...it even looked like ice shavings!
Some sort of fake snow. We're still not sure what it was. The kids said it tasted like soap. Some sort of bubbly stuff...they loved it!
A huge Christmas Bell. The kids played inside of it. It's where the 'snow' fell.
Looking straight up from inside the bell.
They love their coffee and their Clooney!
At least I was behind this statue....
Trinity did not want to stand next to the 'weird green guys'. Faith's just a little too friendly!
The Portuguese kids love to jump in those bouncy things too!!
Trinity says...."Merry Christmas to All"!!
