Today’s treats!

Inside the treasure chest was vanilla yogurt for some sword dippin’!  I wanted to make a little pole for “pirate fishin'” but ran out of time.  :)  Frankie was a huge fan of the fruit leather eye patch!!

On TLAP DAY you can’t just TALK like a pirate

you absolutely must…

Tell jokes like a pirate.

Laugh like a pirate.

Eat like a pirate.

And

most of importantly of all–

DANCE like a pirate!

Bedroom Ball Pit

A little magic in everyday.

I have an unwritten rule.

One fun thing everyday.

It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive or elaborate.

Just one new (or old!) thing each day that makes us giggle or smile.

Today was our bedroom ball pit.  Yesterday was a picnic dinner on top of the car (that was

Emerson’s idea– she ate up top while I sat on the grass and watched!) Tomorrow Mason has a ‘fun center’

with a butterscotch root beer stand, putt-putt and marble races waiting for us.

These guys really do bring me so much joy!!

Earlier this week we checked out this book from the library.  After a quick read I knew immediate that we had to make FLOUR BOMBS!!!  Think water bomb with baking flour.  I only made six, but should have made 60 because the kids LOVED them.

Frankie watched the action this year.  Maybe next summer she’ll join in the fun.

 Napkins + Bakers Twine or Tape + Baking Flour = Great Messy Fun!  Next round I’m going to try to tint the flour so it will be kinda like a rainbow explosion!
