A Pirate's Life
We had a great time on Saturday. We celebrate Michael's 7th birthday. We did a pirate party theme. Boy, it's easy to get carried away with this one! I had so much fun planning everything. We dressed all the guests in pirate gear and tattoos when they arrived. They put Michael's gifts in a treasure chest that we made. We played several fun games. Even the food went along with our whole pirate theme. We had Peasant Fingers (pigs in a blanket), Crunch Cod Fish (goldfish), and Shark's Blood Punch (Hawaiian Punch/Sprite). My sister-in-law even found an awesome treasure chest pinata. At the end of the party we had a treasure hunt and the kids put a map together out of puzzle pieces that we cut and searched for the lost treasure. When they found it, all of the party favors were inside. Michael said he couldn't come up with just one thing that was his favorite part. He said the whole party was AWESOME! I guess we're onto something. Thanks for the encouragement, Robin. You really are my best friend! Love you.
