Ahoy Me Harties!

A few weeks ago, Jen and I took the kids on a special trip to Annapolis to ride a pirate ship! Chesapeake Pirate Adventures does an amazing job making this boat ride extra special for the kids. They start out by dressing them up and painting "tattoos" (or beards or moustaches) on the kids to turn them into "real" pirates. Then its off to the sailboat where the kids are engaged the whole time - looking for a treasure map, reading it, finding a key, using water cannons to battle a rogue pirate, drinking pirate grog (aka Sprite), picking their treasure from the treasure box, etc. The whole thing was ridiculously fun (even for adults).
My handsome pirate!
