Pirate Party for Juddy!
How is it possible that my sweet baby boy just turning 7? Well, he is on July 1st. And since I will be off in Africa and Juddy will be on vacation with Daddy and his brothers, we had a early birthday party. It was our full on birthday kid party...there were 12 boys total. There may be something wrong with me to do that....but they all had a great time running around the yard for a big treasure hunt, playing on the pirate ship playarea which was decked out with flags and a skeleton. but of course they all had to gear of to be pirates with face painting and tattoos! Then they found their pirate gear (hat, hook, sword) in a trunk at the end of the treasure hunt! They all really embraced the pirate spirit! We had a pirate eye patch craft and painted little wooden treasure chests (which of course were filled with gold coin candy). The boys all got to hit the pirate trunk pinata and then we lit the pirate ship cake for Juddy! To finish off the party the boys "walked the plank" into the pool! Andy and I were exhausted by the end! But what fun!
