4th of July

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.
after the movie, there was a knock at the door and a treasure map left for the kids. they found their treasure (supplies for s'mores) in 3 different location.
we made a yummy dinner...
pirate's punch
shrimp boil...super easy and yummy!
out-to-sea jello
we ended the day outside, eating s'mores and setting off fireworks with our neighbors.
