We made it!

Whew! We finally made it! In our typical fashion - our trip was an adventure! We got to our airport waaaay early - 9:00 for a 12:45 flight to Atlanta. Because of the weather in Atlanta, our flight was delayed 2 hours.

Did I mention that we only had a 2 hour layover! We landed at 3:45 and finally got off of the plane at 3:55. Our flight to Moscow took of at 4:15. We sprinted out of terminal B, up two escalators, and 3000 m to terminal T, then a little bit more to get to our gate. If you were in the Atlanta airport yesterday and got smacked by our luggage from all of our bobbing and weaving.... ummm.... sorry! But we have a baby to meet! 8 ) Thankfully, we got to our gate just in the last few seconds before they ended boarding.

Thankfully, our flight over was uneventful.... though neither of us could get comfortable enough to sleep on the plane. It was a nice 11.5 hour flight. That's a long time to sit!

Our awesome driver picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. We took a short nap and Skyped with TinyDancer. Now we are off to explore and find a grocery store to pick up some water.

Maybe more later .....
