Ahoy Mateys!  We took the kids on a pirate cruise this trip to the beach and they had a blast.  Our friends the Hensleys joined us, along with my parents.  Lucy took up with the Ship Mate and helped her with all her "duties."  The pirate crew told stories, let them shoot water guns at each other and read maps looking for buried treasure. The girls loved getting to drive the ship but Jack was a little sleepy from his interrupted nap and clung to my hip most of the ride. The first picture below shows my Dad getting sprayed by the water cannon of a passing boat.  Good thing he was such a great sport about it!

While we were sailing the Bay, we met up with some dolphins who were really showing out.  There was  a baby dolphin swimming with its parent(s) and the grown up dolphins kept pushing the baby to the surface to breath.  It was really, really neat getting to see them so close to the boat. 

A Pirate Cruise wouldn't be complete without some fun pictures, right?

This one is my favorite.

After the cruise we rode over to Tacky Jack's for dinner but didn't stay too long after the wait was 1 hour and 45 minutes.  We ordered some appetizers and went down to listen to the live band.  Wouldn't you know that the first song they sang was Chicken Fried?  Everyone in my family had a great time singing and dancing.

The restaurant must support the Make A Wish Foundation and of course we had to stop for a picture!

This post wouldn't be complete without the pictures of the cutest captain around.

Our trip comes to an end today and we are all so sad.  We have had an amazing time and honestly just don't want to come home.  There is no doubt we will be leaving from this vacation relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated...ready to take on the world!
