Let's play Pirates!!!

When the call went out this morning for some dress-ups to play pirates, I thought Great!

I love to play Pirates.....the deserted island, the frocks, the moonlight, the red wine , Mr Depp.



Ooops ! Wrong Pirate game Jodie!!!!


This one involved a trip to the local park to see the cannons.



The boys had a great (noisy ) time and this is my attempt at "just one nice photo please boys..with no silly faces" and what do I get? Fletcher doing bunny ears.


Apparently this pirate game involves Fletcher lurking in the bushes,


Toby hiding behind rocks


and Oliver picking flowers for the girl pirates "'cause if you give flowers to the girl pirates they think you love them and then after that when you make them be in love to you then you can have all their gold and money"

  1. Arh! Where be the sea ye pasty bunch of land lubbers.

    Ha ha!

    They're very cute. Love the bunny ears.

    I'm actually thinking of going a pirate theme for my 30th this year.

  2. gorgeous cheeky fellows!

    am very (VERY!) envious of that nice bright sunshine and swimming trunk weather you are having while we in the N Hemisphere shiver and shake and hibernate when/where we can...

    enjoy it!

  3. Very very funny total madness once again Jodie! Have you thought about writing story books about your little people - I'm sure there would be a market for them, you do child-speak so well and your photos are delightful! Lucy x

    just what I needed.. a laugh! I love Fletcher doing bunny ears, very funny! I have visions of you secretly doing your pics down the park lurking, waiting for no prying eyes.. I live in a small town with sticky beaks, so I can imagine you do too!

    Thanks for the laugh!

  18. These pirate boys are so funloving and cute! How great to make a softie that will appeal to both genders - as there are seldom softies that are made specifically with boys in mind. I love these - and you have set them up in great poses. They look like they are having a ball!

  20. Oh I love these boys - they remind me so much of my husband and his brothers (and coincidently they have blonde, red and brown hair - LOL)

    Love the mischief that they get up to!
