Ahoy Mates

There be pirates ahead!
We went all out for Ezra’s 3rd birthday. We sunk a pirate ship with cannon balls, had a treasure hunt, put jewels on personal treasure chests and had a few sword fights here and there. Oh yes, there was cake and ice cream too.

Our front room had a bit of a makeover.  We needed to turn the house into a ship… this was what we came up with.

The booty was found inside this treasure chest.

(Plain trunk purchased at craft store.  With a little paint and glitter glue we made a beautiful treasure chest).

The ship they were to sink with cannon balls.  I think this was an activity to shut the door on and let them have at it.  Whiffle balls were flying!

Two puffs is all it took.  He’d been practicing.

Sharing a seat… for a little while anyway.  Once Ezra noticed, he pushed India off.  Brotherly love.

  1. Really really cute! Remember our bubble party a few years back? Can you believe they’re three now? We’ll be in Maryland visiting family for Agnes’ birthday, so we’ll do her party at her grandparents’ house. I’m planning a carnival. We’ll see if it comes together. I sure do miss you guys.
