6 months

No time to get all wordsy . . . just a few pictures to mark 6 months since Sofia came to be with us:

I thought, "How cute. I'll take a photo of them washing the car in their life jackets."

Then I realized, "Hey. . . . those are the shoes they're gonna wear for the next 36 hours of traveling . . . Drat."

Guess I'm gonna have to bag 'em and throw them in the suitcases. Wonder what they can wear instead . . .?

Hope your shoe dilemma works itself out :D...Just wanted to wish you a safe trip, and a wonderful summer holiday! We'll have to get together when you get back.

All my best,

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
