My mom and her shenanigans! She sent the kids (and adults) on a scavenger hunt that involved a walk down to the lake, along the pier, looking for clues to the hidden treasure. Each clue was even written in pirate-speak (she's all about those fun, little details). Unbeknownst to us, while we were away from the house looking for clues, she stayed behind to decorate the dining room into a pirate party...with candy and mustache straws!
Pirates have been making contact with the kids ever since they were little and vacationing with my parents. It's a tradition that the kids look forward to and have fond memories of. This time the treasure included something for everybody! So, of course, we all got dressed up in our new buccaneer-gear and documented the heck out of ourselves in photographs. Arrrrrrgh.
Never too old for piracy.
