I was really nervous about planning it all- I don't feel like that is my forte- but wanted to make it cute, cost effective, and fun for all the kids. We "walked the plank", dug up buried treasure, pinned the patch on the pirate, and put on pirate patches I had things set up to go on a scavenger hunt- but it was just too humid outside I didn't want to drag anyone out there....and I was dying!! Oh! And check out Jared's awesome artistic skills! He totally free handed that poster of Jake the pirate! I asked him to draw it for me and look how great it turned out!!! I just can't bear to throw it away!
All in all, the kids seemed to have a good time, and Dallin and Addie thought the whole thing was super exciting. We were grateful to the friends for coming and giving Dallin such generous gifts- he's been loving them all! And thank you Kiya and Jared for grabbing the camera and taking pictures for me!!!
Happy birthday Dallin! I hope you had a great time!
