ahoy mateys

The birthday weekend finally arrived. Mister Wilson has been talking about his pirate party since Christmas!  Thrilled that he picked a theme and stuck to it for so long.

We all supported our Captain Wilson and dressed up in our pirate gear.  Wyatt, was NOT a fan.

Ella is a fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates so she was all about being a pirate on Saturday.

The playground is ready for a band of pirates!

Our pirate cake is sailing some choppy blue seas.  Will knew about the cupcakes, but the pirate ship was a surprise.  And he was thrilled.  (I totally copied the idea from here….)

Sword fights and duels were a given.

We almost forgot we had a piñata.  It was a surprise for Will.  Look at his smiley face!

The kids were quick to grab up gold, jewels and, of course, candy.

Wyatt and Ella were slow to gather the loot.  Looks like they are pondering what went wrong with their strategy.

And the party wouldn’t be complete without a few golf cart rides from Poppy.

We had a great time celebrating with our family.  I love that the kids have so many cousins close in age. 

Will said it was a GREAT party.  And that his cousins are his best friends.  It was a perfect day for our big five year old!
