Sailing on the Never Seas

28 Jul

 

07282013-1We went to Annapolis today for a sail on the Sea Gypsy, the pirate ship that leaves out of Eastport. We had been meaning to do this for some time and this weekend happened to work out just right. Luckily, we saw no rain!

We arrived in time for face painting (or tattoos) and getting ready to sail. Miss H did not want to dress-up but she did enjoy her tattoos. She got a dolphin and a hello kitty pirate.

We all boarded the ship and the fun began! The crew was great with the kids and entertained them with their antics.

The highlight for Miss H was the water cannon.

Look closely and you will see ‘Pirate Pete’ approaching in his dinghy.

I think they all made out pretty well.

If you are in Annapolis, it is definitely a fun thing to do. I am sure we will be back again.

After the cruise, we were hungry so we headed to Davis’ Pub for a great lunch. I think they have one of the best crab cakes in Annapolis! Miss H found the perfect lunch too.

Hot Air Balloon Party

28 Jul

One of Miss H’s best friends from school invited us to her brother’s second birthday party. Miss H was thrilled to see her friends! The theme of the party was hot air balloons and all the kids got to decorate one.

The girls were all excited about hanging them in their rooms when they were done.

The art project, the mac and cheese and the Georgetown Cupcakes combined with friends, playing outside and hide and seek made for the ‘best party ever.’
