Pirate Party

2 Comments

We had Nolan’s 4th birthday party this weekend.  We went with the pirate theme.  This was his first party with classmates so that was exciting, though a number of them were out of town (darn summer birthday).

The goodie bags were Target Dollar Spot cups with other Dollar Spot items – glow bracelet, tattoo, mustache, pencil and Mardi Gras beads.
