Pirate Party!

(((((YOU ARE NOW GOING BACK IN TIME TO SEPTEMBER 11, 2011)))))

 

Ahhh, the sun is shining.  The weather is warm.  I’m wearing shorts, a tank top and my favorite flip flops. 

We’re BBQing, jumping in the jumpy house, having water balloon fights and swinging on the swings!

Don’t you wish it was summer again?  I do!

On September 11, we celebrated Aiden, Connor, Annika & Mackenzie’s birthday’s all together in typical Munro extravagant fashion!  Do you remember the party from last year, when we had our own miniature circus? Well this years party was a close tie – if not surpassing the magnitude and amazingness for a child’s birthday party! 

This year’s theme was PIRATES.

Julia, once again, went all out planning the worlds most amazing party E-V-E-R.  She had every little detail planned and it all coordinated back to the Pirate theme – and I mean EVERYTHING!  Julia is an amazing party planner, but I’m a big part of the actual logistical aspects of the party.  Needless to say, I take partial credit for its fantabulousness!  Julia’s ideas.  My execution.

 

My awesome sign that told the Pirates where to park and how to enter the ship!

At the front door the kids had to dress-up like pirates!  They needed a hook, eye patch, hat, bandana and of course a tattoo!

At the same time they picked up their treasure hunt list and Pirate Loot Bag!

Upon walking the gangplank, the Pirates entered the ship!

You could find me out on the gangplank passing out loot bags at the beginning of the party!

    I want to be invited to the pirate party. And I love the twins. I can say from experience that they’ll grow up to be besties!
