Come if Ye Dare
Pirate “little man’s” birthday bash
Ship Sets Sail at 4:00 on August 19th
Meet at Lady “butterflygirl’s” Island
Once all the shipmates arrived (ten including the birthday boy), the games began.
First was Walk the Plank…everyone walked on a piece of wood that was over blue paper which represented water. I didn’t blindfold anyone, but had they been older, I would have. After successfully walking the plank, each child received their eye patch and head bandana.
Next was Pass the Pirate Hat…played like hot potato. When each child got out they were given their telescopes.
After that was Place the Flag on the Pirate Ship…like pin the tail on the donkey. No one was blindfolded. At this point of the day I just wanted it over. When they completed the task they were given their jewels.
Finally was Musical Islands…just like musical chairs. Each child earned a red scarf for around their waist and a balloon type sword.
We took individual pictures and a group photo. I later realized I forgot to play the Cannon Ball game (Bozo Buckets) and also forgot to add a mustache to their attire. Oops!
The hearty meal consisted of…
Hot Dogs, Italian Beef, Pasta Salad, Cheetos, Pretzels, Veggies, Peanuts, Pirate M&M’s, and Sand Pudding.
Then of course was cake. Yep, it was a Pirate of the Caribbean cake. Sam’s did a great job!
Opening of presents…I honestly can not believe all that he received. Thanks to everyone for their generosity. A special thanks to my brother who went overboard! He is for sure my little man’s favorite uncle.
Finally, the piñata. Yep, I got them all sugared up!!!
Forgot to get the pictures from my dad when I saw him yesterday, I was too busy putting Lego's together. Please be patient!!
