Here's Blue with his pirate gear on:
Great-grandpa acted as the tattoo artist. As an added bonus, he impressed the preschool crowd with his WWII era coast guard tattoos.
What's a pirate party without weaponry? Red acted as the swordsmith, and impressed the preschool-parent crowd with his balloon artistry. He also does poodles, but they didn't seem appropriate.
Pink was grateful to join in the fun. Green was grateful that she took a nap before the party so that she wasn't a cranky mess.
Wondering how we managed to have a party at our house but still take pictures? Here's Blue's
girlfriend Pretzel - her mom took all the pictures in this blog post.
The requested Pirate ship cake. With a major shout-out to my friend Mauve who showed up late last night to save me from my frosting nightmare.
Nothing quiets a room full of kids down like a great-grandma with a story book. The perfect transition from outside games to sitting still for pizza.
Happy Birthday Blue! Here's to another swashbucklin' year.
