Watts's 2nd Birthday Party

For Watts's birthday party we chose a pirate theme.  Since he has only watched TV accidentally up to this point (like when he was in the room while the girls were watching Sophia or something) he doesn't really know any characters or like any shows yet.  I tried to think about things that he does like and capitalize on those for his party theme.  So far his likes are: digging and sword fighting.  That screamed to me "swashbuckling adventure," hence the pirate theme.  Lucky for us, we have a pirate in the family who was willing to show her true colors at the party...
Pam's costume was too perfect.  Lots of the kids thought she was a real pirate, which cracked me up.  Watts is so far not a fan of people in costumes, so he was not as pumped about the pirate at his party as the rest of the kids were...
Watts's bestie came to his party.  We love this cute little guy...
To keep with our theme we used Cille's sand play table to bury "gold doubloons" and threw in a few of our beach shovels to help with the digging for buried treasure...



We also set up the bouncer, which at this point is our birthday party staple...

Hula hoop fun with Kelli and Claire...

I love a man in a pink car...
Poor Aaron under attack...




I had to basically stalk Skyler in order to get this picture, but it turned out cute anyway.  That little fella has a BIG personality...

Cille's shirt says "Boys....Be Afraid!"  I thought it might be a good shirt to wear on party day just to give some of the smaller guests a heads up...

More party fun to come!
