On Tuesday morning we had reservations for a pirate cruise for our big boys! We thought we might get rained out but the rain stopped (for the most part) long enough for us to get in our special outing. It was a HUGE hit and so much fun!
The boys were super excited but super apprehensive when we first set sail. But after getting over their initial concerns and nerves and just a few tears, they were good to go and had the best time! They got to have a water gun fight, sword fight, swab the deck, get their faces painted, see treasure, find treasure, pick out treasure, and be sworn in as real pirates. It was the cutest thing ever. By the end of the cruise they were SO into it and taking their jobs so serious. They got to help find stolen treasure after all. And become real pirates. It was so, so fun! Thanks Megan for recommending it to us!!
After the cruise we met my parents (who kept Layton for us) and took our pirates out to lunch. Then we got WET. Haha. But we're thankful we still got in our pirate cruise and had time away from the house on the rainy day. By that afternoon the weather had cleared up and my big boys enjoyed some pool time with daddy. The big boys LOVED the pool this vacation. (Although the pool being pretty small was sort of challenging... 12 person limit and everything. Ha!)
The big boys also enjoyed baseball on the beach. I think they played every single day.
And Layton enjoyed being held under the shade of the tent.
This sweet boy fell asleep 2 days in a row on the beach. Precious.
