Talk like a Pirate Day..... Arrrrrrrrr

We celebrated in style this year! Our homeschool group had talk like a pirate day at the park and we all got dressed up and even had a treasure hunt to look for hidden booty! We all had a blast and to our suprise there were several school classes at the park when we arrived. The kids were all taken back by the swords and hooks and eye patches we wore, especially seeing moms with them on. They were all very curious and wanted to play with us.

We went letterboxing with our homeschool group last month, it's almost time for our next adventure. Here are the pictures someone took, looks like K was hiding during most of them, actually she was up at the front of the group with a few other girls.

Here we are at the parking lots listening to the instructions to find our first clue. I believe T is sharing all of his wisdom with us here.

The path in the park had some very narrow areas that led down to Fossil Creek. Someday it would be much fun to wade down in our crocs and see if we could find some fossils of our own.

We found the letterbox and the book. We each got to stamp our letterbox books with the Fossil Creek stamp. We are quite excited to go again, and this time we will have our own stamp.

T heading back out onto the trail. He enjoyed the hunting.
