Today's special event is Paul's 32nd birthday. Last year we were in Chicago to celebrate it. We spent the day wandering the town, had dinner at Le Colonial (thanks mom!), and finished up the evening with drinks in the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Tower. The view was wonderful (thanks to some aggressive moves on our parts we were able to secure spots at a table next to the windows - woo hoo!)
Mom and I only had a martini or two. Paul, well, he got silly!
Here he is enjoying a specialty drink called the Aquarium. It was a bluish-green colour and had fish floating in it. He had just realized that the fish were 'jelly' fish and was trying to fish them out for a bit of dessert.
Today if all goes according to plan we will be enjoying fish of a different sort . . . fresh seafood at the famous lobster shack in Portsmouth NH: BG's Boat House. I'll be sure to post pics upon our return.
