Shiver Me Timbers

We like pirates around here, me hearties. But we upped the ante on Saturday, holding Erik's birthday party on board a pirate ship.

Aye. Sailing the blue seas of Mooney's Bay in Ottawa with Capt. Terrible Terry and his motley crew.

If you have kids check out Pirate Adventures in Ottawa. A great time was had hunting for treasure and making evil Pirate Pete walk the plank; drinking 'grog' and dancing pirate dances.

Shiver me timbers, shiver me soul
Yo ho heave ho
There are men whose hearts are as black as coal
Yo ho heave ho

We'll sail away on the ocean blue
A blood-thirsty captain and a cut-throat crew

It's as dark a tale as was ever told
Of the love for treasure and a lust for gold

Shiver me timbers, shiver me sails
Dead men tell no tales

How cool is that for a party!! I bet his friends were amazed!! I wish I lived in Ottawa...... not really but I wish we had a party ship like that!)

So - Are you guys the coolest parents ever, after this?
Looks like great fun on a beautiful later spring day.

You are definitely in danger of being hated by all the other parents, who must now try to compete with your amazing birthday parties! Way to up the ante! Erik is a lucky boy! We must head up to Ottawa someday and meet you on the pirate ship...

The funny thing is I'm not a big Birthday mom - usually it's a casual back yard affair, or the local DQ and playground. But with Erik being 10 - we had to do something special.

We'd love to see any of you up this way for a pirate cruise. ANytime, mateys.
