Kellisa's Sweet 16

May 23, 2015


Driving, planes, trains, hiking, swimming, and boats for a sweet 16 birthday celebration. Not bad for a girl who wasn't suppose to live more than a few minutes.











May 23 (and 24/25), 2015

Kellisa has very few interests which makes it nearly impossible to buy her gifts. She loves her music, a few TV shows and books. Kellisa is more about adventures and experiences. That's why we planned as many of her favorite activities as possible for her 16th birthday.

May 22:

Kellisa went to sleep at 5pm to be well rested for her birthday:
 
 
May 23rd started early with Kellisa's first time driving a car:

 
Kellisa was excited to be at the airport:

 
So was Laurel:

On our 2nd flight to...


 
Portland, ME:

 
Our first stop in Maine was a ride on a historic narrow gauge railroad:








 
Next stop was a hike around an island:
 







 
Our next stop was a ferry to an island to have Kellisa's birthday dinner, but we missed our ferry by literally 30 seconds because the parking garage was full and we had to park a couple of blocks away.
 
We ended up at a Chili's for presents, dinner and cake w/ice cream:




 
We started the next day with some pictures of Kellisa in her birthday dress and high heels:




 
Then we went for a swim:

 
Then we caught a ferry to Peaks Island for "a day after Kellisa's birthday" dinner:
 






 
We had a beautiful dinner overlooking the water:
 





Followed by a cookie ice cream sandwich for dessert:

 
The ferry ride back to the mainland:

 
Kellisa enjoying the drive back to our hotel:

 
Laurel wanted her chance to "drive":

 
Both girls passed out after two amazing days in Portland, ME:
