Birthday on the Boat
Tuesday was my daughters birthday. She turned 18!!!
Can you believe it. My beautiful baby girl is all grown up.
Her favorite place to be is the beach.
A good friend of hers has several boats. So they go out on the water quite often.
They have so much fun. So for her birthday I got to go! Yea for me!
I prepared an incredible picnic lunch for the three of us. (Bragging on myself)
Tuna salad on a bed of spinach
Fresh marinated green beans
Fruit cups
Drinks: green tea, strawberry crush, lemon-aid, and water
Dessert: Carrot cake muffins with cream cheese fill I had a little striped table cloth to use. I thought it looked and little nautical. I even used cloth napkins, straws, and red flat wear. The girls felt so special! They usually they just pick up a burger and soda on the way.
When we were out on the sand bar we were just laying around talking and napping. Well.... The waves had pushed us side ways into the sand so that we were stuck. We tried to rock back and forth but we were stuck! Not to worry, about 6 strapping men came to our aid and we were free again. Ha ha! Too funny!
This little house was on one of the islands in the sound. How cute, a little small for me though. Ha ha It was a little hard to take pictures on the boat. So I didn't take many. It was all about having fun and relaxing. We stopped at a sand bar and hung out there for a while. Where were so many sand dollars! I wish I had a picture of the boat. It was built in 1970 and all wood, Harrkers Island style.
Don't they look like there having fun?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Melanie, I know it was a blast. I felt like it was my birthday not Carmen's.

Aw, what a wonderful time! Those are the days that I call "just what the doctor ordered!" I am so glad you had a wonderful time...and the menu sounds fantastic! You are such a sweet mom to make the day special for her!
