June first is a special day for kids around the globe - and Chinese kids are extra-adored on this day! ...Because many of them are 'only' children, they get showered with love, gifts and attention on their very own holiday. All the parks in our city were swarming with families, vendors & balloons, all bright & colorful. We steered clear of the hubbub - and rode scooters, took a walk around our neighborhood, had popcicles, visited the ice cream shop - and played with friends. I think these activities might be more of an everyday occurrence, but to us - everyday is children's day!!
