I know you’re looking at that cave and you’re feeling kind of brave…Don’t Mine At Night. Minecraft lyrics keep running through my mind today. It might have something to do with the million times we listened to that song in preparation for our Minecraft camping trip with Scouts. I have a feeling Minecraft will be very unpopular with me by the time we are done camping.
Today was a beautiful day for a pirate ride with the Jersey Shore Pirates. www.jerseyshorepirates.com My nephew had his birthday party there today and you really could not ask for a better party. The kids loved it.
Admiral Aidan, Daring Dane and the rest of the young pirates successfully found the treasure, defeated Pirate Pete and celebrated with grog, pizza and cake.
Before we headed off to pirate adventures, our soccer team had another great win – 3 and 0 so far! My little goalie successfully defended his first penalty kick today. It was his first experience one on one with a direct kick, and as his mom/coach I was a little nervous. It was a good kick, but he caught it! This is the face of a proud kid! It was an exciting and happy moment for us.
While we were at the game my other guy was making pumpkin cake with Nana. I wish you could have smelled the house when we walked in! Heaven! Needless to say we got forks and dove right in. My family has an affinity for pumpkin. Pumpkin muffins, pancakes, pie, soup, we love them all. The cake was delicious! Mmm : )
Tomorrow is another busy day… I can’t believe I have another race and I didn’t get to write about last week’s half marathon yet! The pictures are in and I will eventually share them. Tomorrow I am off to Run the Vineyards. Wish me luck!
So, I am wondering, what is the best kids birthday party you have taken your child to? What made it so good?
