Piarates!!!! Lincoln's first friend party
Wow did we have fun!!! It's hard not to go over the top when you only have to do one birthday party a year. So we went over the top, and loved every minute of it.
We had a blast. Captain Lincoln and Jared welcomed each guest with a big AHOY, as they arrived, then they came to me and I drew beards or mustaches on them, gave them a patch, hat and hook. They got to color a page while they waited for everyone to get ready. Next was a Pirate story, with a read along CD. Jared got the kids yelling, Yo Ho and AHOY along with the book.
Off to the treasure hunt, Jared had hidden 7 clues around our house and outside. The kids loved finding all the clues and then the buried treasure!!! I was amazed at how everyone stayed focused and were just into the adventure.
Then lunch of Hot Dogs and chips, carrots and Alligator blood!!! :)
Then singing, presents, and the final activity was the "Cannon ball drop" I bought big black balloons filled with water, that the kids could barely hold and they had to try and make it to the X. It was a lot of fun. All the kids were great and we had a blast!!
As for the cake, I won a neighborhood auction to have a lady in my ward make me a cake. I gave her some pictures I found on the internet and she gave us this masterpiece. We all loved the cake, and it tasted so good!!!! Thanks Cheri!!!
We had a great time and are really happy it's over!
The video of my naked son was with my camera phone, so it's not very good. But it shows you how big our flag was. I know, I know we're awesome. :)
