A Pirate Paarrghty!

Around our place, Memorial Day weekend was spent getting the yard & house in gear, & crafting for Grady's birthday party this coming weekend.  This spring was short, & our list was LONG, so we're really scrambling to get everything done!

It's hard to believe our little pirate is turning 4 this week!

A little pirate-y preview: 


Last week, we headed out to my parents' house on the lake for a little photo shoot.  Yes, there was bribery involved!  A trip to Target for a toy in exchange for a few smiles & cooperation.  You gotta do what you gotta do!  :)


He's probably the cutest little swashbuckler I've ever seen...although I may be a little biased!

I'll be sure to post some party pictures next week...until then I'll be flying around the house like a crazy person trying to get everything done in time!

PS, my dad made the wooden sword for Grady's Peter Pan Halloween costume a couple of years ago - I love it!  Grady & I made the telescope out of some PVC pipe & metallic spray paint last weekend!
