It's actually snowing kids!!

All week the children have been hoping that it would snow. So you can imagine their excitement when I stepped out of the apartment for a night-out on Friday evening to find that the snow was falling. Calling the household to come and have a look, husband and kids hurried down, without shoes, to see the snow falling outside (what is it with our family and no shoes in -1 temps?).
The next morning the kids were up early and looking out the window ... and they were not to be disappointed. The snow was at least an inch thick in parts and the grey streets of Bologna had been transformed. Dressing up in their recently purchased snow suits they quickly went up to the top terrace to build a snowman complete with carrot nose. Of course a trip to the park was also in order, and we caught up with school friends Genevieve, Lucy, and their mother Olivia ... the children were in snow heaven. Rolling up big balls of (not the cleanest) snow to make snowmen, throwing snow balls, and sliding down snow covered slides.
Never have the kids experienced snow in a city where they live. Maybe the excitement will wear off, but for Gabi and Nat this has certainly been a highlight of Bologna.
