Ahoy, Mateys! . . . A weekend recap!

Well, shiver me timbers, how are my loveys today? :) Lincoln's first birthday party was yesterday and it was a success! While I was praying it wouldn't rain, it ended up being really, really hot. The kids kept running inside with flushed faces. Which was okay. At least they got to play outside. The Jeffster and I were up late Saturday night, putting up pirate decorations and wrapping presents. But everything went well Sunday. Of course, you know how birthday parties for kids are: by the time everyone leaves, Mom and Dad are ready to pass out. But you gotta do it sometimes and a first birthday party is a must.

I'll post some pics and then come back later once I've gotten some from my sister. Sara's camera is way cooler than mine and she got some great pictures! Below are pictures of our pirate decor and the cake and kids. I'll attach some pictures later of the food and rum punch (which was awesome and I'll share the recipe!).
