Where would you have a big mile-stone birthday party? Morgan’s Campground and Canoe Livery, of course. This was the scene where Carie hosted her 50th birthday party. There was a final total of 6 Airstreams and one T@B -- 13 camping people for the weekend, and Carie’s work friends, other friends, and family on Saturday.
Our silver quarters lined up along-side the Little Miami River in the first three campsites - where we were able to share 3 sites . . . and 110 electricity! A little silver TAB joined at the end of the line beside their own private gazebo!
As usual, we had plenty of 4-legged friends along for the ride . . . 6 dogs, and one special kitty, Shamus.
The weather turned hot and humid Wednesday thru Friday, and we waited patiently for a front to move through and bring cooler weather. Meanwhile, we went out to eat a few times and watched movies outdoors in the cooler evening temperatures. Finally on Friday it turned cold and rained moved into the area. Not to worry because the party took place Saturday in the large shelter-house where we were high and dry.
Suzie baked cakes at home and assembled, frosted, and decorated them in her Airstream . . . . extremely thankful for the weather cool-down so the cake wouldn’t melt! Did any Airstreamer EVER have such a great birthday camping cake?
Tom and I made beans for 40: 13 pounds pork/beans, 4 pounds of bacon, 3 pounds pineapple, 1 cup chili sauce, ½ cup mustard -- slow-cooked outside all morning. Carie provided the decorations and most of the rest of the food: hamburgers, hot dogs and a BIG variety of go-withs.
These pictures are just a sampling of the festivities. Needless to say it was a fun weekend at Morgan’s and a great celebration of Carie’s big Five-OH! Three days home, and then we're heading out for an Anniversary yearly observance!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
