Birthday trip

Today was Adam's birthday, so now I'll be writing about my 11-year-old son. Among other things, we went down to Portsmouth, Ohio, so he could see one of his favorite towboats -- the Paula Ruble. Even though the sun was in our face and the boat was hanging on the other side of the river, we got a few pictures, at least before his camera's battery gave out.

Here are a couple of shots of the Paula Ruble going under the U.S. Grant Bridge . . .

. . . and here's one as it approaches the Carl D. Perkins Memorial Bridge.

For various reasons, Adam gets his party next month. He might get a river-related gift or two then.

Oh, if anyone is wondering, we didn't skip school. Our county didn't have school today, and the kids have tomorrow off, too.
