It's a beautiful day in Moscow

Hi there, this is Stranger. It's my first time blogging so bear with me. : )
The girls are upstairs taking a nap, it has been a busy morning. We woke up at 5 am our time to get to the airport on time. EasternStar woke up with a big smile on her face and an attitude that she was ready for adventure. She did great on her first plane ride. She was so tired, but refused to sleep. She cried a little about an hour in, but after having a little snack and a drink, she was happy to sit and read the safety pamphlet. No seriously, she sat there and looked at it as if she was reading it for at least 15-20 minutes. Then she decided it was more fun to use it to play peek-a-boo with me.
It is a beautiful day here in Moscow. Sunny and about 70 degrees. Our Moscow coordinator has also told us that this is "Moscow City Day" weekend. It's an annual holiday where they shut down streets all over downtown, and set up stages with performances all over town. We may go check it out later, and if so, will have more stories, I'm sure.
We get a little down time for the first time since we got to Russia. We have the rest of today and all day Sunday, and then on Monday morning it is off for EasternStar's medical exam.
Will keep you all posted with what we get up to! :)

The first thing we do each morning is to check out the blog. WE are enjoying reading of your adventure to bring Eastern Star home.
