Tumbling classes

Robby and Jonny have been taking tumbling classes for the past few months. The class teaches coordination, balance, helps increase physical strength, builds their confidence, teaches them to follow directions and teaches how important physical exercise is! Plus it helps them burn off ALOT of extra energy! It has been a fun class and the boys love it!

A Pirate Party!!!

Robby choose to have a pirate party for his 5th birthday! He wanted to invite his 5 close friends from our neighborhood. The invitations read:

AYE, ME HEARTY,
COME TO ME 5TH BIRTHDAY PARTY!
WE'LL HUNT FOR LOST TREASURE,
AND HAVE FUN BEYOND MEASURE!
SO SET SAIL AND CHART YE COURSE,
FOR CAPTAIN ROBBY'S OR HAVE REMORSE!

We played games like - Walk the Plank, Tic Toc Find the Croc, Pin the Treasure on the X, and of course a big treasure hunt! Plus we read pirate stories, made ocean bottles, had sword fights, and the kids also made a parrot...because every pirate needs a parrot! It was a great party!
