Swell! A Pirate Birthday Party

Doing two over the top theme parties with a limited amount of funds has been interesting and frankly completely exhausting. Esperanza took pity on me after I jumped a curb while trying to make for a most memorable birthday EVER and nailed a flat tire. (Because there are the separate party days then the actual birthday, so really three events.) She showed up and kept the kids in stitches.

My son and I went to the party store to set his theme: pirates. His colors were black and red. I tried to make his vision of pirate dreams a reality.

Now if you excuse me, I’ll be napping for the next week.
