Happy Birthday Carissa Dee…..

 

DSC02423

   There she is at Christmas time a few years ago teasing her brother and wearing most of the bows that came off her presents. From the time she was little, she ripped stickers off things and saved them or wore them. Chiquita banana stickers were her favorite, and she usually would stick them on her face. My little girl is 28 years old today and she is away doing what she loves…camping! Every year for the past several years it has been a trip to Bar Harbor but this year she went to Crocker Pond Campground in Bethel, Me. image She loves to hike, fish, swim, canoe, sit around a fire and eat marshmallows, play guitar, drink beer and raise heck. She is there with her close friends both male and female. I talked with her this morning and she was napping in her tent after having breakfast cooked on the fire…scrambled eggs with cheese, and banana and strawberries. The weather is kind of crappy but they will make due.music fest_037 She’s always been a little hippie.music fest_107 These 2 photos above are from a big music festival my family and I put on in memory of my folks a few years ago.

Happy belated B-day to Carissa! AND...she is just up the road from us! Probaby driving by, we went to the pond when Madame was 2, she loved it.
I can't seem to find the comment section on the Calendar Girls post but what a great story! I didn't realize it was based on a true story. So funny.
