Turning 3

My darling Elizabeth turned 3 on Saturday.  We spent the weekend at Raaswater River Lodge, and had a weekend filled with everything to do with pirates...

the weekend started off with fairy wings and casting good spells 

on Saturday morning, the birthday girl decorated pirate cupcakes with some help from mom (Tonia) 

Elizabeth said "I need a cupcake"

the pirate cupcakes were decorated with flags and cannonballs (astros) 

the pirate princess cuddles with dad (Robbie) 

 the treasure hunt was a big event for the birthday girl; Robbie and Tonia dyed paper with tea, and Robbie drew the map.  Elizabeth and dad study the map to find the hidden treasure

"I think we must go that way dad" 

miss Elizabeth finds her first treasure chest 

"where to next dad?" 

more hidden treasure! 

20 paces to the West; this was a tough job for the birthday girl!

and she finds the last treasure chest - yay! 

the pirate princess 

these scary pirates are dad and miss Kataryn 

It was a really fun and busy day.  Elizabeth had tons of fun, and she was such a good girl.  Happy birthday my angel!
