My cross country birthday!

For our Date night/Birthday dinner, we crossed the border to the USA! Albert had arranged for the girls to stay the night at some friends house and so we had a whole evening and night to ourselves, what a treat!

Albert did some research on where to take me for dinner. He discovered that anywhere decent (ie not Costco :) ) with a view of the Falls was waaaay out of our price range. After doing some more research on the American side, he came across a Sushi place. What a neat idea, one I hadn't thought of :). We both like Sushi and I liked the idea of having my birthday dinner in another country! 

Once we finished dinner we drove straight back to Canada and enjoyed a ride on the Skywheel which over looks the Falls, very nice! 

Tuna Sushi, YUM
Salmon Sushi fried in a tempura batter, VERY YUM!
Assorted 'raw' fish platter, VERY YUM also
oh, just to prove I was there :)
