So we are 3 full days into our Portugal vacation. Jack came down with a cold-type thing -- no fever though so the swine flu is ruled out -- and gave it to little Jack, so we have two sick boys on our hands. Matt and I have become fast friends with the kind lady at the farmácia in the past few days.

On the upside, we are a short walk from Praia das Maças, seen below, so we´ve got that going for us

We´ve sworn that tomorrow we´re going to get out and see some of the area, sickly kids be damned. They´re both doing okay, so it should be fine.
