Two steps back........enjoying some sights.

So, we kind of missed the post of our baby shortened trip to Red Square and the Kremlin, so here is a few of the better shots we got:

Leah And Samara at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

A church by Red Square

One of my favorites..Militia training on Red Square in front of St. Basil's Cathedral

Russia's President's Home at the Kremlin

Guards around the Kremlin

At this point Samara wasn't really keen on being put down and wanted absolutely nothing to do with a stroller, which of course we dragged all the way to Russia, so we had no other choice but to carry her. About half way through our walk she decided that she would take a nap, so needless to say our walk was cut short, but I think that we got to see some really cool sights.

We made it to Red Square and the Kremlin, but Red Square was blocked off for the training that is pictured above. We walked through a really cool shopping mall to get to the other side of the square where we were able to get to St. Basil's Cathedral, which was absolutely beautiful, and from there we walked around the Kremliin wall and back to where we started.

We could have done so much more as you could pay to take tours inside the Cathedral and the Kremlin, but with a sleeping child who wanted nothing to do with a stroller we had no choice but to call it a day. Even though we couldn't do more we're extremely happy to have had the chance to see what we did.
