How to....have a pirate party in photos...

Firstly you need to invite some friends and some bigger friends to help. You play a few party games - pass the parcel - with gold chocolate coins inside to make it more pirate like (?)...


and then travel at a fast walking pace -honestly Captain there was no running ;-) around the ship, hunting for clues written on palm trees to find the treasure (which being more gold coins was really not that exciting but no one seemed to mind or notice!).... then you play some more games... including pin the patch on the pirate and musical treasure islands (like musical chairs, but without the chairs and with islands :-)....
and then have everyone sing happy birthday to you and have a quick photo with the cake before it is destroyed...
then you eat cake and watch your brother amuse everyone by getting chocolate icing in places it should not reach...

give cake to your lovely Uncle and Miss Amy who have come to share the fun...and help take pictures...and get wet...
Have the pirates form teams to throw cannon balls (aka water balloons) at Daddy and Uncle Sam...and generally all get a little wetter (which they all found extremely amusing - in retrospect the 60 water balloons we had could have been a lot more!!).....then after playing a couple more games head up to deck 8 and make Uncle Sam and Daddy walk the plank (which may have been Nanny's suggestion - just so you know!!)...

So there you go...one pirate party for our favourite five year old...we're just hoping they sleep well after the sugar rush so that we can have more fun for Sam's birthday tomorrow.
