High Seas Adventure

Today was not an ordinary day.
Today was a an extraordinary adventure.

My sister invited the boys over to sail the 
High Seas in search of hidden treasure.

The boys were only too happy to accept the invitation.

Meet the crew:

Peg Leg Roo

One Eyed Kit

Black Beard Bo

Salty Bandit Rocco

And Captain Blue 

They arrived and boarded the ship,

studied the map and found their first clue.

And then they were off, 

dashing here and there,
collecting clues.

until the scallywags found X marks the spot.

A little digging and they were greatly rewarded.

They looted the treasure and then what 
...would a pirate boy do next?


They dined on Pirate Treats 
and filled their bellies after a hard days work.

And they each left with a box full of treasure.

Auntie Cake sure made our day special.
So a HUGE thanks to my Pirate sister for such a fun day!
Nobody does adventure like her.

Ahoy Mateys!

In My Defense...

In my defense...
he was just too cute, 
and totally dead serious, 
when he looked up at me with 
those big, long-lashed eyes, 
and asked if he could wear 
his new pajama top to school on picture day.

Without hesitation I just smiled 
I said yes.

Chewie is my Co-Pilot.

I mean it was his 7th birthday.
