Iconic Moscow

Today, we braved the snow--because that's pretty much what you have to do when you have decided to visit Russia in February and you only have three days to see everything--and headed over to The Kremlin and Red Square. The buildings are really gorgeous, and it was such an interesting experience. Plus, it provided a wonderful opportunity for some great conversations with the kids. After we got back to the apartment, our train tickets were delivered, so we are all set to hop on the Trans-Mongolian Train tomorrow around midnight and head to Asia. Just so you know, we will likely be incommunicado for the next week or so, but I'm sure we'll have tales to tell when we come back online, so stay tuned.

St. Basil's Cathedral

We couldn't resist a selfie with this iconic building!

The Senate Building and Lenin's Tomb

All bundled up against the Russian winter

Tsar Cannon

Tsar Bell is the largest bell in the world and weighs over 200 tons

The Armory Chamber Museum
We couldn't take pictures inside, but it was really impressive to see
all the tsars' wealth on display. 

Max and Clay couldn't resist the Russian nesting dolls
and have been having a ball with them all afternoon.
