Happy Birthday Carson!!

We had a Pirate themed party for Carson's 5th birthday! All the kid's had a great time! He was so excited to have his friends from church and school over to play! I was thrilled to have friends in town to help out. We needed a lot of extra eyes to keep an eye on the kids by the pool! I still can't believe he is 5...where did the time go?




New scooter!


Gonna need swim goggles for the pool this summer!


Logan loves the presents almost as much as Carson!


MONEY!!


Riding the scooter.


New remote control helicopter.


I already had this cute tablecloth and just added a few pirate accessories...


Treasure chest full of treat bags...we put tattoos, gold chocolate coins, and bubbles inside. Also, each of the kids got a pirate sword and eye patch! I LOVE Oriental Trading!


Buried treasure cupcakes! Weston thought I was crazy for using real sand, but I just made sure that I handed each of the kids their cupcake to avoid any grit in the frosting! :)


Ahoy Mateys!


Us girls had fun playing the part...who new temporary tattoos could be so much fun?


We buried a bunch of fake gold coins in our sand pit and the kids managed to find them all! The boys can re-bury them anytime they want to play pirates!


"Walk the Plank" Weston built this plank and the kids took turns trying to get across to avoid getting eaten by the sharks....we had a blow up shark and alligator. Those pool toys sure came in handy!


"X" marks the spot!


Tawnya read the kids a story in her best Pirate voice! :)


She had a very captive audience!;)


Yay! More pool toys!


Cupcake time!


Enjoying some "Sea Dog Floats" AKA root beer floats!


The gold chocolate coins were a big hit!

Happy Birthday CARSON! Time does fly by fast. The party must have been a big hit with so many fun activities. I was looking to see if anyone had a hook or peg leg... maybe next time!
