Starting Week 3 in Siberia!

Now that Aidan is with us, I have noticed that time has sped up exponentially. While here in Krasnoyarsk, pre-Aidan, time was dragging slllllloooooowwwwllllyyy by. Now, post-Aidan, I blink and the morning is gone. Another blink and it is evening. One final blink and we’re getting up to do our morning routine again. Crazy! I’m sure every parent notices this, but it is so pronounced!

Today we went to the Travellers Coffee Shop for breakfast with the kids. Aidan likes the Crepes there (so do I). Now he smells like Strawberry jam. This Coffee Shop is one of the places here we discovered that serves good food and good coffee. And they have Wi Fi, too. There is a grocery store right by it so we’re able to stop in there for supplies on the way back to the hotel.

I have found that I like Pringles potato chips. Normally, I don’t. But, they are one of the few American items we can find in the grocery store and make a great snack for me. And, they are a lot better than the meat flavored potato chips we tried the other day! Yech!

It’s almost nap time, but our little terror (go figure! And isn’t that great? J) isn’t tired yet. So, Pat is out running the hotel hallways with him to burn some energy. I went out to check on them a little while ago and Pat pointed at me and said “Where’s Mama?” Aidan turned and laughed and ran down the hall for me. Our boy is going to grow up and be a Linebacker!

We’re looking forward to going back to Moscow in a couple of days. It will be a lot of fun to take Aidan down to Red Square and take some pictures of our munchkin. But, we can’t forget where we were just a few days ago. I can't seem to get the pictures in on this post, so they will be separate.

Until next time!

Stacy, Pat and Aidan

Maybe Aidan will be on the Redskins someday! That is so great that he runs around like a little terror!!! Can't wait to have Kendall and Tyler run around with him. They will wear him out. Or maybe he will wear them out! HA! Have fun!!! Love you. So glad that I got to talk to you!

The photos are wonderful. I can't wait to see him in person not to much longer. Maggie is going to have so much fun running with him. Maybe they will wear each other out. My bet is on Aidan. Maggie is doing great by the way. God bless and take care
