Good Bye Moscow, Good Bye Russia

Today was our last day in Russia.  Tomorrow we will be headed home!  We had to go to the US Embassy this morning to get Sofie's Immigration Visa.  That was a trip!  Like everything else here there was a long line, and we were told not to wait.  Go ahead of everyone waiting and go to the beginning of the line.  No problem, well for me!  Mark was a nervous wreck!  While there we met another couple adopting a 9 year old girl.  So nice to converse with others going through the same process.  After that our driver took us to Red Square so we could walk around there for awhile.  Yes, it was as cold and windy as the pictures look!  We went back to the hotel for naptime and walked to the mall for dinner tonight.  Then it was bath, pack, and bed!  So excited to be headed home tomorrow morning!
Outfit of the day!
