And then there was pirate fun. We did a treasure hunt with a treasure map:
But my favorite part of the day is when the kids went off to create adventures on their own, making forts and bridges in the living room and playing "Three Billy Goats Gruff" (we've been reading the book recently). I love that they're starting to play together with less direction (and intervention) from us. I love their creativity. And I love to catch them playing Mommy/Daddy and baby and seeing how they emulate or better us in their role play.
Today was a good day, and I realize how much of it is due to planning and my own attitude.
