At long last (it seems) Zachary had his birthday party. We've been thinking about pirates for sooooo long. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of all the decorations but here's the cake. I made it myself from a picture in a magazine. Not perfect but I think it's cute.
We already had this "treasure" chest so it was the perfect spot to hold goodie bags for the party guests.
No summertime party would be complete over here without swimming. Only one of the six kids refused to get in the pool at all.
When it was time to open the birthday gifts they had disappeared! Captain Hook had stolen them and left this note in their place.
The clues led the kids throughout the house and finally back to the living room where Captain Hook dropped them while escaping from the crocodile.
The kids thought the hunt for the gifts was so fun. After the gifts were opened they put the clues back around the house and pretended to do it again. Zachary even wanted to keep the clues in his bedroom tonight.
Zachary got some great gifts (although I got few pictures)! Thank you everybody!
Finally the kids all sat together to eat hotdogs & hamburgers with fruit & chips.
Then we had cake & icecream last.
Only about 3 1/2 months until Alex's birthday. You can bet he's already planning his party!
