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.
