Pirates of the Chesapeake

This morning, Brady, Lucy and I (along with some awesome friends of ours) went on a Pirate boat ride, "Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake". The "adventure" leaves out of Eastport in Annapolis and you head out to the Chesapeake Bay and Severn River. It was FANTASTIC. If you are ever in Annapolis with kids, check it out.

The kids start out dressing up in Pirate gear and getting face or in this case, arm painting!

Lucy got a starfish and a "Baby Ariel" or mermaid!  Brady chose not to have any face/arm painting.

Brady and his best buddy, Nora.

Lucy showing "Captain Rusty" her muscles.

Looking for mermaids!

Captain Rusty (yes he really was the Captain, he would just stop the boat and leave it idle in the bay to come talk to the kids) and his 1st mate, "Skully"

Looking at the treasure map!

This was the best part (according to Brady) where they got to spray the bad guy, Pirate Pete, with water cannons.

It was awesome!

Yes, it was as much fun as it looks!!!

The treasure!  X marks the spot. That's the Naval Academy in the background, just FYI.

Lucy checking out the treasure!

Brady getting his fair share of the treasure.

What a fun morning, thank you to the Farley Family for inviting us along!!  The kids will be talking about this one for a long time.

Wow, that looks like a ton of fun. I bet they will definitely be talking about this for a long time--and probably wanting to go back and do it again!

Holy cow Jenny! Forget about dinner and chit chat, next time we get a girls night out we're going on this thing!! Does the Captain serve cocktails? :)
