This was taken at the Art Institute. I've been having some problems getting photos sized correctly it will take a while to get what I'd hoped to include in this thread and some things I'd hoped to include just can't be included. [sigh!]

I'm pretty sure No. 2 took this photo from the balcony of the Aquarium. She took them with her cellphone; not bad, IMO. Speaking of the Aquarium, here's a photo of a Leafy Seadragon. These were SO Kewl! They swim vertically, and if you didn't KNOW they were sea creatures, you'd think they were plants.

Here's another one from the Art Institute. No. 2 was trying her hand at photographing my head inside some Native American headgear. I thought it came out pretty good.

Spent one evening down at Navy Pier; that was fun. No. 2 caught the sunset behind the flags there:

We had a lovely evening for a sail on Wednesday evening last week; didn't go sailing with son and Silly-O over the weekend; had other plans. J caught a nice photo of No. 2 captaining the sailboat: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Lastly, we ALL spent quite a bit of time in Millenium Park the past week. No. 2 took some pictures of us through the Cloud Gate, but she hasn't sent them to me. The Crown Fountain was a hit with us, though. It's fun because you're dressed when you run into it, IMO.

Hope your B-Day was fun, No. 2! You sure provided ME with some laughs. Feel free to blog more photos from your phone. We're missing a whole lot of frog pictures, I think.

I don't know how to post pics on the blog, so I'll send you some of the other ones that we missed.

I had a WONDERFUL birthday. A group of 16 friends came out to dinner with me on Wednesday at Benihanna's. Then we closed off the night at Davidson's with a champaign toast (compliments and many thanks to my boss) to celebrate my "official" birthday.

On my ACTUAL birthday, I mostly loafed around all day and then came back to Davidson's to have dinner with the parents. I think I got the Stepmom a little drunk, too. That was FUN! Closed the night off with a quite movie with my guy, my manager, and my friend Monica to let me sober up a bit before my double shift today. (It's slow at the bar, so I had some time to blog.)

Overall, its been a pretty good 2 weeks. Mom alone was a GREAT birthday present. Thanks to everyone for the memories, gifts, and good times!!! xoxo
