This party took 3months to prepare, but it sure was fun!

snacks and games
The kids had to search the castle for the hidden clues. The clues read “To retrieve the treasure, escort Pirate Justin to where the water falls into a large pool of water. Once Pirate Justin recovers the chest you must shout “Happy Birthday Alexis and Jeremiah” and the bounty will be yours!
OOPS! Our little pirate decided to go back to the Sea! (he fell in the pool. Uncle Tony decided to jump in with him, and then cousin Zach had to join in the fun! All the kids wanted to swim too, but it was cold!
We had food to please a princess or a pirate palate

We had a lovely party! And today the kids are having a blast playing with all their new toys. I… well, I am still trying to recover from the exciting day. Now, it’s time to tackle the mountain of dishes that I didn’t get to last night.
