Jaxton's Pirate Birthday Party

James got invited to his friend Jaxton's 3rd birthday party a few weeks ago. His mom is my friend who had her baby shower with me. They moved out of our ward right after Rett was born, so we don't get to see them as often and it was so great to get together! All of the kids had a blast! It was a Jake and the Neverland Pirates themed party, so of course James was excited :) When we got the invitation, I asked James what we should get for Jaxton for his birthday and he immediately said, "A Bucky!" (that is the name of the pirate ship in the show). He got one for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. Plus, since he got all pirate themed toys for his birthday, he now thinks that all birthday presents for everyone must be pirate ships.

During the party, all of the kids got to go on a treasure hunt around the park, following clues and playing games along the way. At the very end was a large X on the ground and all of the kids started digging with their hands until they found a buried treasure chest! It was full of goody bags for all the kids. So cool! All the boys got red bandannas (like Jake) and the girls got fairy wings (like Tinkerbell). James wore his for about half of the time, but my easygoing Rett kept his on the whole time. Man this kid spoils me with his easygoing personality!
The cake and food were so neat! Carolyn handmade this treasure chest cake and they had pineapples cut like a crocodile. Happy, you would have loved it! ;)
 They had little cups of blue jello with gummy fish in them. James thought it was hilarious to eat it with his hook hand!
Here is the birthday boy blowing out his candles and opening his Bucky! He loved it, now we just need to get the boys together one of these days so that they can battle their pirate ships :)

Haha! When I saw the cake I immediately started examining it to figure out how she made it and then when you mentioned the pineapple alligators, I thought, "I hope she has a picture of them!" You know me well! :) We can't wait to see you guys, hopefully in May!!
