on the 4th of July, i let the kids pick what they wanted to do for the day. they had been asking me for a couple of weeks to have a pirate-themed day and they chose to do it on the 4th. i'm not sure how pirates and celebrating our independence goes together, but it turned out to be a great day!
we made pirate hats to make our day festive. while the paint dried, we watched the movie Hook.
shrimp boil...super easy and yummy!
