Yesterday I was treated to a terrific birthday surprise–fifth row seats behind home plate at the Cubs’ game! Karen tricked me into thinking we were just out for a photographing exploration of a Chicago neighborhood (even sneakier because the idea was mine) when we just happened to pass by Wrigley Field an hour before game time. And then, who should appear but Jen and Anne, with a handful of tickets!
The weather was sunny, warm and beautiful, and our seats were amazing. In fact, we had better seats than Governor Blagojevich, who was sitting five rows behind us. The Cubbies gave me birthday gift of a win over Milwaukee, and I was treated to another surprise when we were all filing out, and as the governor was glad-handing everyone passing by, he shook my hand and wished me a happy birthday!
Kudos to Anne, Karen and Jen for pulling off a fantastic, fun and memorable birthday surprise. I had a great time!
