The Pirate Party

Today Ryan had his pirate birthday party and it turned out just as expected. Wild, crazy and fun all at the same time. Ryan enjoyed having all of his friends here celebrating with him. The kids got to go on a treasure hunt and at each station they received something that had to do with "Pirates". At the first station they had to walk the plank and got their eye patch. The next one they had to slide down the slide to get a telescope. They ran from one station to another after looking at the big treasure map Scott had and also received a whistle, a mask, a sword and finally they found the treasure. It turned out to be a fun day with beautiful weather. Once everyone sailed away on their ship Misty and I were looking for Ryan and Lilli and someone found them around the corner in the sand that the treasure was in. They were having their own sand party. They were a mess, but enjoyed every moment. McKenzie even got to dress as a little pirate with her tutu and bandanna. Yes.. baby pirates where tutu's. :)The day was wonderful and we were so thankful for everyone that came to enjoy this special day with us.
