Porter had a fun Pioneer Day birthday. He got to have two parties, one with grandmas and grandpa and one with his friends a few weeks later.
He wanted a pirate party with his friends so we did just that.
All the pirates coming to the party received shiny skull and cross bone bandannas and an eye patch.
They built ships and raced them in "Snake Swamp." Unfortunately, most of them sank before they made it across the swamp.
They all went on a treasure hunt around the neighborhood; past wolves, a rose garden harbor, a pit of doom, the end of the world, to name a few. You'd be surprised at all the landmarks around a construction friendly neighborhood.
The pirates had to walk the plank across swamp. They were pretty talented at keeping their balance.
Finally,they came in to enjoy a pirate cake and ruby punch.
The pirates all seemed to enjoy themselves. Although, I will say that five-year-old pirates are harder than three-year-old princesses.
