I said how much would they love these for their birthdays?! And Jonathan said, How much would they love them tomorrow!
We are horrible at surprises and couldn't wait. So today after naptime and after Jonathan got off work we surprised the girls with these:
Jake and the Neverland Pirates treasure boxes!!!!!
Driving (is it driving?) the Pirate ship!
Look at my hot Pirate!!
It was so fun to find these treasure boxes for the girls. I think Jonathan was super excited because I had almost bought them stuffed animal dogs in a hot pink carrier (which I know they would love too) before we saw these. I was happy to get these instead because this was a "game" we could play all together! Playing pretend with our kids is so important and while the aluminum foil hook and confetti worked; we had a lot, A LOT of fun with our new gadgets! I have a feeling you will find us playing Pirates often!!!
It reminded me of when I was a kid, my cousin Will and I would play pirates at his house on the bunk bed - he had a cool steering wheel thing to steer the ship and we would make a huge tent in the living room. Then he also had a cool spy kit that was so fun to pretend with. He always had such fun toys!
I hope I am helping my children create lifelong happy childhood memories like mine were!
I'm so glad this is how I get to spend my Friday Nights!!!
