Ahoy, Matey!

The same day that I was hosting a baby shower for my friend, Kendall, Brianna and Brenson had been invited to a birthday party for a little boy in their music class. Since Chris had the kids all day that day, he went ahead and took them to the party. 

Jackson turned 4 years old and had a pirate themed party. My three loved the party! It was all I heard about all evening after getting home from my day. I guess they had all kinds of games, a face painting station, a bow-making station, a whole table of cute pirate-themed food, and great decorations. I was sad to have missed it, but one of the party guests put a ton (like over 100) of photos on facebook so I had fun looking through them. All but one of the photos in this post are from that guest's facebook album. Chris didn't take the camera :-).

How cute is my little pirate? The bandana, eyepatch, and belt were a few of the {many} party favors. They had face painting, too.

I love her earring, haha!

They "walked the plank" as one of the party games.

Apparently, this boat was a big hit with Jackson and Brianna!

There was also a pirate pinata . . . Brianna's first experience with that! See the hook the boy in the photo has on his hand? That was another party favor, along with a whole bag of other goodies.

While Brianna was outside partying, Brenson hung out inside with a few of the birthday boy's relatives. When I was looking through these photos, I kept asking Chris, "Where is our son?" I guess he was having a great time inside, and they were thoroughly enjoying him as well.

Love this photo!

And this one, too. Sweet girl.

Brenson was such a good boy that day. Love his serious face.

Jackson hugged Brianna after he opened the gift she brought :-).

Brianna is really beginning to "get" birthday parties, so that's been fun for us. I'm so thankful that someone had their camera going so I don't feel like I completely missed out on the party!
