We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Day 5: Moscow!

Our agency took all of our adoption paperwork to the embassy.  We will be having our embassy appointment tomorrow to recieve US visas for the girls.  So we had a day to kill in Moscow!  We decided to be tourists and go to Red Square.  It was a blizzard outside, but we didn't want to waste the opportunity.  I mean, how often are you in Moscow??

We dressed the girls all warm and snuggly.  That was exhausting for Hallie and she promptly fell asleep ;).

But it was soooooooooooooo cold!  Between the below zero weather, the wind and the snow I can honestly say that I have never been so cold.  We decided that it was not only too much for the girls but too much for the moms as well.  We got our obligatory pic in front of Basil Cathedral during a strange sudden calm in the snow and headed back for the hotel, all of us with frost bite on our faces.  So much for being tourists in Moscow!  At least our driver drove around for a bit so we could see the amazing buildings.
