I'm getting a haircut this morning, & gotta go to CVS too so that I can recycle my ExtraBucks before we leave. Jim is headed back to the MedExpress - yep - cause the cut on his hand got infected (his turn this time.) We spent the majority of this week cleaning house, ick. And tonight we will come home, go to bed, and then get up around 3am & start packing. Our flight doesn't leave til Sat evening - but the plan is to sleep through that big one - so a weird sleep time is necessry!
So far we know our schedule will be on Monday to see our dude & have medicals done. Then Tuesday, it's off to court! From that point its a waiting period full of baby house visits & tourist stuff. We will be posting throughout this time so check back often.
Hoping to have a smooth trip with no major issues! (We've got our first battle with Delta waiting for us at the airport already.)
A couple things we're planning on seeing while we're there: The Hermitage & Palace Square, The Bronze Horseman, Sennaya Ploschad, Artillary Museum & Naval Museum, Alexander Nevsky Monastery, Peterhof, Sts. Peter & Paul Fortress, Cathedral of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Red Square (including Lenin's tomb) & the Kremlin. (Of course if you google these places you'll see what they are all about.)
One other thing - the St. Petersburg Zoo. We will wait until we get the man for that one! For all you iPhone users - THE BEST APP EVER - download the Pocket Zoo. It has access to live webcams at various zoos around the world & we are so addicted its ridiculous. The St. Pete zoo isn't one of them - but its still awesome!
More coming soon.....
