Playing Hooky

Thanks to eveyone who sent me birthday wishes yesterday!  Joe and I played hooky for the day and had an absolutely great time playing tourists downtown. 

We even ran into a noon concert that made me feel like we'd stumbled upon the Central Park scene from the movie Enchanted!  The band, The Paperboys, is sort of a mix of Irish, big band, Mexican and folk music.   By the end of the concert, the space in front of the stage was full of people dancing (even me - if you can't dance in the street on your birthday, when can you?). 


  1. Sounds like you had a great celebration. Hope you had cake too.

  2. I'm glad you had so much fun on your birthday!

    I sent you a little something in the mail yesterday. :)

  3. What a fabulous way to celebrate your birthday, Karen! Glad you were able to dance in the street and play tourist in your fascinating city.

  4. Thanks all! And yes, I did get cake - our last stop was the Icon Grill downtown where they serve a slice of chocolate cake as big as my head. Seven layers of chocolatey goodness! I'm still working on it - even with Joe's help.

  5. Happy belated birthday!! Sorry I missed the big day, but I hope you're still celebrating (or basking in the glow of the memories of the fun day). Seven layers of chocolate? Joe knows how to plan an itinerary!
