Pirate Party


Cole requested last year (the day after his fifth birthday party, to be exact) a Pirate Party for his sixth (!!!) birthday!  

We had so much fun planning and preparing.  Cole specifically requested people wear pirate costumes, a pirate ship cake, and a pirate pinata.  With Gram and Pap's help, we managed to meet all three requests!


Pirate family - Isla was a parrot!




















Pap was an extremely realistic Captain Jack Sparrow!  Chase was a little nervous around him...

And the cake!  It turned out fantastic.



Lots of eager kiddos waiting for pinata turn:



And Ben busts it open! Perfect action shot:
"MOMMY, YOOK! CANDY!"



An incredible party!  I can't believe our little boy is six years old! And now onto planning next year's party!

Little Free Library

I love how these little free libraries have popped up in neighborhoods all over! We spotted one near the park we visited today and HAD to go over and pick out a book! 


Love it!!

Cole says...

Quotable Quotes from Cole:

Me: "I'm glad you're here, because I'm going to need your opinion."

Cole: "Oh, I have HUNDREDS of opinions."


Cole: "This book forgets my minds!" (I think he meant blew his mind?)


Cole: "That doesn't rhyme, Daddy."

Dad: "It's close, though."

Cole: " Nope, it's far away. Not even close."


Cole: "What is that bird carrying?"

Me: "It's a kite."

Cole: "Why is the bird carrying a kite?"


(sees a picture of the Statue of Liberty)
Cole: "I like her ice cream cone she's holding. I think it's vanilla."


Me: "Haha! Wasn't that a funny joke I just told?"

Cole: "Well, not really."


Cole: "Now that I'm six, I'm practically a grown up."

Isla Marielle

If I had to describe Isla in one word it would be "peaceful". She is the calmest, sweetest, most chill sweet babe ever. Isla loves her head stroked, being held, music, her big brothers, her car seat, and the moby wrap. So far, her dislikes are limited to cold wipes on her bum, being naked, and baths.














I just cannot imagine our family without this beautiful little girl!
