Charlie's 4th Birthday Party

Each year as Charlie's birthday approaches, I usually agonize over whether to gamble with the weather and have the party at home, or have it elsewhere. This year, for the first time, I choose to have it at home...and won the gamble! It was a beautiful day, and we had a great turn out! Charlie had a blast. And of course, I have pictures to show for it. Can you tell Charlie wanted a "Pirate" party?!

Grandpa Thier
[Grandpa got into the spirit of things, too. He doesn't look very mean though, because he couldn't stop laughing!]

[All of the kids painted and assembled pirate ships...which went over even better than I thought!]

[The pirate pinata...can you tell Charlie loved it?! Those things always scare the mom in me... I'd put them on the scale with bottle rockets for "dangerously fun things for kids."]

[As Charlie blew out candles, he got all but one, which Chance blew out for him. It was so cute.]
