Yesterday I met my good friend at the park with 3 of her kids and all of mine. A few shots of their good times:
Sofia, Sarah and Joel. What's a girl to do when she doesn't have sunglasses?
Clay and Sam, best friends since the beginning.
No photo of Mattias yet. He spent the afternoon in the pool. This morning he informed me that his forehead was burnt by the sun so he can't flirt with his eyebrows now because it hurts.
Dad had been doing quite well most days since we've been here, but today he was dizzy and very sleepy. He was in bed by 7 tonight, even after napping in the afternoon.
That's all for now.
The outskirts of St. Pete
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.
