September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
We continued the tradition of going to Thanksgiving Point wearing a balloon costume to hand out balloon swords for children who talk like pirates. We went to the Ashton Gardens this year.
I put up a YouTube video showing our past balloon pirate costumes. This year's costume was based on the zombie pirate LeChuck from the computer game series Monkey Island.
We never have time to get free donuts at Krispy Kreme anymore so I just bought some at the grocery store this morning while I was getting supplies for dinner. Nichole requested "squid pups," carrot hooks, and cupcakes with skull and crossbones on top. We also had cream soda. It's amazing what kind of traditions happen because these kids expect certain things to go with certain holidays.
He is currently sleeping on the couch and I am trying to hurry to get this post up so I can get some rest, too.
Ooh, ooh. And I finally got to wear my pirate ship necklace that my parents gave me several years back. I keep forgetting about it on Talk Like a Pirate Day but I remembered this year. Hooray!
