A Pirate Looks at Two

I wasn't going to wait until my boy was turning forty before I threw him a pirate party. His pirate party came this past weekend to celebrate birthday number two.

He was Captain Thomas, of course.Other pirates were there too. Some Landlubbers. Some Buccaneers. A Scurvy Dog or two showed up. And then there was Thomas' Me Hearty.

Adult pirates: Young pirates:Mommy pirates:

Pirates that were getting into Captain Thomas' rum punch:

Pirate ship cupcakes:


All the pirates left with booty, their very own treasure to take home.
My treasure was hanging from around my neck, and I'm not talking about the gold coin necklace.

Fun, fun fun...

Its funny, people always suggest that it is more fun to shop for girls, they have adorable clothes. While this may hold true, I do believe that shopping for a boy's birthday party is the most fun! There are so many imaginative ideas and things to create... space, cowboys, dinosaurs, legos, pirates oh my!

You did a fabulous job!

One of our favorite birthday parties ever at this house was the pirate birthday party! (Son #2 invited his lady principal to come, saying, "You won't have to walk the plank - I promise!")

You're such a fun boy mom - Kudos to you!!

Love the pirate party! I think well-done 'theme parties' are my favorite blogs to read about these days. Your 'rum punch' was hilarious. And everyone was so well-dressed. (Although I was hoping to see your Cute Carpenter dressed up as "Hook"!) Happy Birthday Thomas!
