This weekend we finally broke out the pirate digging set I gave Collin for Christmas. It's a good thing we did it when daddy wasn't around because it was a messy dig! Collin had dust and sand everywhere from hammering so hard. He dug out a treasure chest, cutlass, skull, coins, and a gun.
When he was done digging he made a pirate tower and we read the pirate book that came with the set. He thought it was funny that pirates called their loot "booty". He also loved hearing that after bad pirates were hung their bodies would sometimes be displayed in cages to send a message that the life of a pirate wouldn't lead you anywhere. He loves hearing about morbid things for some reason.
Then he made me play pirates with him, chasing around rescuing the princess and treasure. He also kept on bombing my ship but got mad when his ship was bombed. Knucklehead. Later that night he said, "Mommy, that was so much fun! Can we play pirates again?"
