We were in the midst of a deep freeze last week, with a couple inches of snow every night. Mind you, Munich is flat, with snowplows for both the streets & sidewalks, so we weren’t really affected by the snow at all.
[Except it takes sooooo long to get the girls dressed for school, clean the car off, warm everyone up. I have never been much of a morning person, but I am really beginning to hate the 7-9am hours. Just too much stress for that early in the morning…]
However, we were able to take advantage of the low temps (a high of –5 on Thursday) to have some fun on the canal in front of Nymphenburg Palace. Alexandra managed to talk us into letting her out of her stroller & being able to run on the ice. Sophia just had a great time skating around in circles, and pulling our friend Dominic who was visiting from Italy. She & Alexandra are so funny together Alexandra is just doing everything she can to keep up with Sophia. This does not bode well for us in the future… And yes, all Alexandra wanted to do was eat the ice shavings. So we left for lunch, and passed by all of the Germans playing a game on the ice, a mixture of shuffleboard & curling. I don’t understand it, but with all of the ice cleared it looked like there was quite the serious tournament going on.
