Ship Ahoy

"The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can’t. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you’ll have to square with that some day." – Pirates of the Caribbean

With a love for pirate's this strong it just might be in our blood. Who knew that #3 of this Feburary post would be the theme of our 5 yr olds birthday party.

On May 1st, 16 of us set out on a 90min. cruise aboard the Pieces of Eight Pirate ship.
It was the most fun outing we have done in a really long time.
The whole thing was geared toward the children. We brought 4 of Caeden's friends, Chad, Ty, Ben, and Andre. Kylie had made a comment that she thought Caeden was on cloud 9 the whole time. We invited each child to come dressed as a pirate.

Owen has a sword and a gun

I love this GQ pose of my nephew, Chandler

I think Chad wins for best costume and he wore it the entire time
They began the cruise with a song and dance routine, then took a short break for face painting/tattoos!

This is how they celebrated the birthday boy, and he loved every minute of it.

They sat the kids down and taught them about the life of a pirate and they shot of a very loud canon at black beard's ghost.

A buried treasure was brought out so the kids could pick some through the pirate's booty

We saw a few dolphin, the weather was beautiful, the water was so green, and children were all smiles, it really was one of the best days ever!
