Piratey field trip

Today our whole family went on a field trip to the Center for Puppetry Arts, where it was "pirate weekend" and they encouraged kids to come in pirate get-up...a perfect opportunity for my two, who love to dress up anytime, anywhere! We saw the magnificently-done puppet show "The Little Pirate Mermaid" and then enjoyed some fun activities like a treasure hunt, a "pirate name generator" (our kids were dubbed "Snifflin' David the Copperpot" & "Pirate Abigail the Jealous"), and a create-a-puppet workshop. We finished off our outing with a picnic lunch in the lovely shaded yard of the Puppetry Center and then headed on home. (I took a quick posting break today because Bruce is taking a short nap and then we're all headed outside to till the garden and mow the lawn!)
