Finally, Robert was home for the weekend, and everyone was well!  We were able to check out yuyuantan park and it’s snow and ice festival.
I will say one thing about China, they are really good at advertising and staging great pictures!!!  Like I have found with most places, even though very fun and interesting, the pictures tend to embellish a tad bit.
The boys had a great time playing with daddy, it was crazy to see a crap load of manmade snow right in the middle of a city park, and even Ada rode down on the ice tube slide.
