Last night we had dinner at Sam Flemming’s house and while driving back it was snowing hard. So this morning when I got up the first thing I did was to look outside to see if Shanghai would be white. And indeed it was, although it was just a very thin layer of snow.
It hardly ever snows in Shanghai, so Scott and Elaine were very excited and wanted to go outside before breakfast already. I didn’t think that was a good idea, so they both finished their meal in record time and then immediately put on their winter coat, shoes and gloves.
There was not a lot of snow, but just enough to throw snowballs at their dad and for them to realize that snow in your face is really cold. After playing in our garden they rode their bikes to the playground where they both played on the snow-covered slides and had a lot of fun.
I had a hard time getting Scott and Elaine to go back home with me, but the promise of making them both a hot chocolate worked. They asked me if they could play in the snow again in the afternoon, but most of the snow has melted away in the meantime so I’m afraid that won’t be possible anymore. At least we still have the pictures!
