With all the rain we have been getting this week, I thought these images would be appropriate. It was a rainy day during this session, but it didn’t stop us from taking some fun outdoor shots. This sweet girl lit up when she got to carry the umbrella (and I’ve secretly always wanted to use this umbrella in a photo shoot). Perfect.
By the way, did you know that on rainy days, IKEA sells their umbrellas for just 10 rmb? With the child play area where you can drop off your kids while you shop, as well as kid-friendly eating areas, it might not be such a bad option for a rainy day activity in Shanghai. My kids also love to grab the free paper rulers, and walk around looking at everything — but maybe that’s just my kids. Parent tip: Try to avoid IKEA on the weekends when it is swamped with people.
