Boat Party!

Finally! The boat party has arrived! Will woke up happy and ready to captain the mighty "Knot 4 Sail". He wore his pirate hat at breakfast, and helped me get everything ready. We cooked enough food for an army and planned lots of fun games. Several friends from my work brought their little ones, and of course Nick, Andi, Grandpa, Grandma, Chris, Shelly, Nana, and Uncle Harry came.

Chris, Dominick, Will and Nick even dressed for the occasion, and we had some very authentic activities. The kids had a sword fight, dug for buried treasures in the sand, pinned the eye patch on the pirate, splashed in the water, and decorated fish cookies. The final contest was for a parent to swallow the fish as quickly as possible, and Mike put us all to shame! We added up the gold coins and distributed the loot. Will even managed to pillage a few unattended plates during the event!
It was a smashing success!
