Our 7 year old & A Pirate Party

A little over a week ago, Gunnar turned 7! (Bad Mommy! Behind on blogging!) We had a small family celebration the night before to make way for the Pirate Party of 9 the day of!

You see all those cute 7 year old boys? They were as loud as the look! But they sure know how to have fun. :)Whacking the Pirate Pinata with everything he's got. I think everyone got 1 hit in before the bottom exploded.

Scavenging for Pirate's Booty.

Walking the "plank". They earned their eye patches for this amazing feat. ;)

Then on to presents...this is where it started...

...and this is where they ended up. With each gift the crowd moved in closer and closer until the birthday boy was backed into a corner. It was hilarious! He got a bunch of lego sets, a game, a badminton set, a frisbee, an rc truck, and his favorite gift of the day? FLARP. Welcome to being a boy at age 7, I guess. LOL

In all the chaos, I forgot to take a picture of the skull and crossbones cake I made, but believe me, the black frosting was a hit!

I was so exhausted by the end of this party, all the noise, trying to get the whole group to do the same thing at the same time. Honestly, I didn't need to PLAN anything....they move at 60 MPH and totally entertain themselves. And the best part? When I asked G what his favorite thing about the party was, he said, "When it was just me and Preston at the end playing on our was like a playdate!" REALLY? Next party - 1 friend!


  1. looks like fun...and like a lot of noise. Hope your ears have stopped ringing. The cake sounds cute!

  2. I love it.

    It's a lot of pressure to give attention to all of your friends at the same time!!

  3. Boys know how to have fun. What a great mom to throw such a fun party!!
