Tsaritsyno Park

Another place we wanted to visit before leaving Moscow was Tsaritsyno Park.  We have been there numerous times and we like to take those who come to visit us there as well.  You can check out the other posts when we went with Micah’s mom and Katrina’s friend Tanya.

The girls had fun running around by the fountain while I was feeding Keith.





Can you see the bride and groom?  This is a popular spot to take pictures after weddings.




Keira was getting tired of walking, so we squished her in the stroller with sleeping Keith





The flowers are always so beautiful here in the summer

Tsaritsyno Park

Yesterday we visited Tsaritsyno Park. I was here not too long ago with my friend Tanya, but now you need to see it again with Darlene in the pictures. 🙂 You can go here for more info on the park.

Very pretty landscaping

These guys were the architects for these buildings

While Grammy was in one of the buildings looking around, we walked through the forest

Then we needed to find cover from a passing shower

* On a side note… thanks to those of you who were thinking of Micah. He has been feeling good and is back to normal.

Pictures in the Park

This past week I went to Tsaritsyno Park with Violet and my friend Tanya. We had a nice time walking slowly around the park while taking pictures.

The last day of school all older Moscow school-girls get dressed up to officially say goodbye to childhood.

At school, in the first and ceremonial part of the celebrations, teachers hand out high-school diplomas and say some nice words about their students.

After that the school-leavers go out to party with their classmates.

Traditionally, on this day Russian girls wear old-fashioned Soviet style school uniforms: short brown dresses with white aprons, white socks and big white bows. Later they change into evening dresses.

But the outfits are all part of a long standing tradition, with black and white uniforms representing the standard attire of school students supposedly in pre-Soviet times, in the period of the Tsars. It should be noted that Russian teenagers are in fact very fashionable, but for this one special day they put away their designer clothes and embrace tradition.

After that, they walk around the city, bathing in fountains, taking pictures of each other and generally enjoying themselves.
