Ahoy Thar Matey!



Ahoy thar Matey!

Stop yer pillaging: lend me yer ear,

I have a message for ye to hear!

The treasure's been stolen.

It must be found. So tighten yer sashes

Skull Island bound!

Shiver me timbers, thar's a pirate on board,

drinken shark's blood and flainin his sword.



Captain Seth turned six this month! To celebrate, he had a pirate party with some swashbuckling fun! The kids (and a few adults) dressed as pirates and played pirate games and had so much fun. We started with the tale of Pirate Pete, one of Seth's current fav's, and learned that "gleaming booty" is the primary motivator for pirates. After sword fights and walking the plank, we filled our tummies with scurvy dogs (pirate lingo for hot dogs) and we even had treasure on our ice cream! Seth had lots of fun and was wiped out by bed time (always a plus for the equally exhausted mommy!).

There are just too many pictures to post, so here are a few:

Little pirates listening to the tale of Pirate Pete. . .

Pirate planning. . . Aarrgh!

This was not one of the planned games, but Titus found something even more fun that throwing bean bags. . . just stick your face in the hole, grin, and inevitably, cameras will start flashing. It wasn't long before all the kids joined in the fun. (I have many more pics of many children in the box at one time... sometimes a very tight fit.)
