Ciaran's Birthday

I'm going to try to catch up with the fun times that we had this summer by posting some of our adventures in New York and Utah. Mostly Utah, and mostly not including me.

Ciaran had his 4th birthday party in June. He ended up having a pirate-themed party. Fun was had by all.

Dawnell made a pirate ship cake with Jake and Captain Hook. Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but the cake part has pirate ship shaping, it's not just a triangle, it also has deck bumps on top. Very cool.

We had themed games for all of Ciaran's friends to play. Station 1 was keep away from Captain Hook. The kid in the middle got to wear a big hook (there was a choice of hooks) and then try to hit away the beach ball.

Station 2 was Walk the Plank. You'll see the plank a little further down.

Station 3 was Cannonball Captain Hook. Not pictured are the black water balloons that you could throw at the Captain Hook pictured here. This was probably the favorite game because, duh, water balloons.

I think there was also a fourth station, but I can't recall exactly what it was and I have no photograph of it. Oh well.

Here's a twinner walking the plank. I think this is Aidric, but well, two months after the fact I'm not sure. The twins were allowed to come to this party, but we didn't make them dress up.

Beckett and Ciaran, on the other hand, got into the spirit with pirate jewelry, headbands, and swords.

Love this picture.

Scooge and Beckster were living on the edge, sword fighting on the plank. If I recall correctly, both of them splashed down to the green grass below.

Dawnell did a great job of planning the party and all of the kids had a great time, especially Ciaran.
