Ashton decided months ago, I think in January, that she wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirates birthday party. And she never wavered from it. She wanted to be Izzy. So I made sure she got a fantastic pirate party! One of the highlights was her cake!!
It was an amazing cake. The necklaces, telescope, gun, compass, couple of gold coins and pirate bags were toys, but everything else was candy jewelry to eat. It was neat. And the cake was so tasty! It was moist and good and the fondant was sweet too! the sand was brown sugar. LOVED the cake!
Kids started to trickle in. But the coolest part was most the girls were dressed up like pirates!
Izzy with her man, Jake! I couldn't believe how tall the Jake balloon was! He was HUGE!
Grandma has made it to all her birthdays, but really liked this one the best for some reason. She had a really great time! I love that Grandma enjoyed herself!
I was dressed up for about 5 minutes, but since it was raining and the floors were getting slippery and muddy, I changed from my pirate gown to jeans and a pirate shirt. I was too afraid to drag the hem of the skirt through the water and mud. But my husband kept on his pirate gear for his little girl.
These are 3 Sanmenxia girls!!!! They're about a year apart in age and were together at the same SWI. Aren't they the cutest?
They played ring toss on Tic Toc the Croc. Only one kid actually got rings on the nose.
Then they had walk the plank. They got to walk the wide and then the skinny one! Ashton zipped across. Others had a bit of trouble. IT amazes me how more coordinated she can be with her balance over others. It's got to be because she's so much lighter and smaller!
Then it was pin the tail on the Croc. We used my scarf to blindfold the kids. They all had a lot of trouble with this one. They couldn't go straight to save their lives.
Last but not least was pinata time! Kids loved getting to the candy.
As we didn't know where to put the candles on the cake, we bought a cupcake last minute for her candle. It worked out just fine!
Here we are trying to get pictures of our Sanmenxia girls. And of course they were not working with us. Sigh! Maybe NEXT time.
