It’s so much easier when they just forget your birthday.

The boy’s wondering what the point is, since they can’t bring a birthday cake on a camping trip.
The “16 Candles” theme is perfect!
I can so picture grandma saying to grandpa “Look, so got her boobies!”
Oops, she got
Even has the jealous older sister… outstanding!
I’m english, and i noticed the englishness..
Please mail all of Margaret’s birthday cards to:
Tent in the forest with bird decorations
The father has such an English face. Seriously, you go there (I’m Australian) and you see literally thousands of blokes with this face or similar.
Cute kid but I know how she feels. I have many teenage pictures where one can tell I didn’t want to be there.
Mom is sporting the rare, but always awkward “overbite grin”
PLEASE make a record cover from this photo.
Grade A stuff. I’m unquetiosnbaly in your debt.
Anybody who responds that way to an effort to celebrate their b’day deserves a compound bow.
The lack of gratitude is extremely awkward.
Next up- blowing out the candles on the whole wheat, completely organic birthday cake. yay.
*Uses sarcastic tone*
Yeah! Everyone loves to spend their birthday camping in Yogie Bear’s Family Camp, and we ALWAYS hang our cards on the clothes line. She looks so thrilled. “Oh wait dad! Get grandma’s hand knit humming bird birthday card pouch in the picture!” lol. Well, she had to have something to put that awesome “Style Queen” card in! Sheesh. Grandma thinks of everything.
Sis can’t help but wonder what’s in store for her birthday! Maybe they’ll spend her’s in Amish Country!
Shortly after this pic was taken, she and her crew had a dance off against Micheal Jackson and his crew.
“Make sure you get my Style Queen card in the picture.”
“To do that I’d have to leave out part of your mother.”
“Ok, ok…it’s your birthday. Sheesh.”
I absolutely love the caption!
Sister’s thought…”Just wait until Style Queen sees what I hid in her sleeping bag”.
What’s with the b/day cards being hung on the clothes line? Did they get wet and were hung up to dry, or is this something specific to camping? Bless her heart – 16 is such an awkward age.
We’ve all been there. Poor girl.
if that’s not the sneer of a teen age girl, I don’t know what is…she’s so disgusted. aaaah, good times!
Wow, taking a backseat to the birthday cards. That’s gotta sting.
Girl in tan jacket: “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia !!!”
ha ha ha !!
Were the people in the backgroud supplied courtesy of Photoshop?!
Nothing says “Style Queen” like athletic pants
That girl in the background is mad because all she got for her birthday is a card.
That boy in the background is pretty much a cardboard cutout.
hahaha yeah he is!
YES I THOUGHT SO AS WELL, FUNNY HE JUST DOESN’T FIT, SARAH
Yes, definitely English. I’m sure they’ve camped behind me more than once. It’s Miss 14 behind her I’d be worried by. She is so slipping out for a quiet smoke and some cider as soon as possible!
and you know you’d have more fun hanging with her than the ‘style queen’
If my parents made me go camping for my 16th birthday… I would look more evil than that.
I did go camping on my 14th, 15th and probably 16th birthdays. They were horrible and ackward. In hindsight, I think I secretly enjoyed myself.
please either go backward or awkward, or awkwardly backward, but stop going ackward.
loving the popped collar with the subtle “style queen” birthday card right over her shoulder
Ahh the teenage years…nothing can embarass you like your parents.
Agreed!! It doesn’t matter how wonderful of a celebration the parents throw for the teen daughter, it’s going to be ackward. Everything is ackward for teens!
Your spelling is awkward!
Backward? Or awkward? The word is right up there at the top of the page, you think you would be able to spell it correctly.
Well, I’m siding with Cee on this one: ACKWARD is a great adjective. Opus the penguin used to go “ACK” all of the time, especially at awkward things. So, I’m sure there’s room in the AFP lexicon for another adjective for things that make you go, “ACK!”
It was Bill the Cat that said Ack Ack
HAIRBALL! Ack Ack!
actually, today IS my birthday and I can so relate to that girl. summer birthdays SUCK!
Happy awkward birthday!
Haha it was my birthday too, but luckily it was pretty much forgotten
When your birthday is from December 23 – Jan 1 THEN we’ll talk about sucky birthdays. Until then, I don’t want to hear it!
Mine is the 16th and I still get the compound Christmas/birthday gifts.
Wow – you have a really long birthday.
I think her sister behind her is even less thrilled… her birthday is tomorrow.
Bet there’s a compound bow in that tent.
Win! I was waiting patiently for that
I was wondering how far down I would have to scroll until I got to the compound bow reference.
Funny how you can just tell what country people are from. Definitely English.
I thought the exact same thing when I saw this.
Her arms are definitely crossed with an accent.
Lmao I thought the same thing, it’s the light, the expressions and the Umbro Tshirt. (I am English though)
I noticed the English vibes as well.
It looks like the girls have picked “Sporty Spice’s Casual Look” & “Olive From On The Buses” in a random draw for a fancy dress contest.
It is also English to string your cards up on a clothesline?
Anything to please the Style Queen.
I’m with Jeff; she’s clearly a Style Queen.
I definitely got that vibe too. There’s just something so quintessentially English about it.
