Arrrgghhh Matey!

We have been in a funk.
A really ready for spring funk.
So today we had a themed day.
My mom made the kids these awesome dress-ups for Christmas.
Seriously aren't they adorable!
And take a closer look at this parrot.  
He's chillin upside down but you can still see its awesomeness.

So we started out with a piratey lunch.
I didn't plan ahead and my kitchen is kinda empty so this is all I could come up with.
A treasure map PB&J with some greenery.   
I used food markers to draw the map and I'm pretty excited to see what I can do with them.

After lunch it was time for a 
I made them each a treasure map and the hunt began.
I can't wait to try this again outside.

They followed their maps around the house until they found their 
Which were chocolate chips

That was Ava's best mean face!
After the treasure hunt they made their own maps and played with some pirate stickers we have.

And I am happy to announce that Pirate Day was a huge success!
There was no whining and crying to watch tv or play on the computer.
They played together ALL day.
Ahhh Bliss
