Children's Ball.

Thursday, May 19, 2011

So where did we go all decked out in pirate costumes?  To a Children's Ball, where we joined princes, princesses, and superheroes in a fundraiser for the Relief Nursery of Central Texas.  The Relief Nursery is dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect through early intervention for overwhelmed and vulnerable families.  A fun event for a great cause -- perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We first decorated pirate hats.




Then Big Sister got her face painted.



Little Brother gave himself a (chocolate) pirate beard.


Big Sister got her fingernails painted.


Then we went fishing, where Little Brother caught an army man with a parachute.




We watched a clown do funny tricks.




Then a major cold front rolled in, so Big Sister jumped in the bounce house to warm up.  This is how you say "Brrrrrrr" in pirate:



And this is how you say "Arrrrrrr!": 


We posed for pictures.










And we danced on the stage with Oma.


That's the story of our pirate adventure.
