Last weekend we did one of the most fun things we have done yet with the boys...we went on a pirate adventure!  Jersey Shore Pirates is an actual pirate ship that sails on the Metedeconk River in Brick, New Jersey.  It was a great way to spend the afternoon with the kids!
The fun started the minute we got to the pier.  The crew painted tattoos on the children, the kids got to dress up in pirate costumes, and they also learned some "pirate lingo" before they hopped aboard.  All the kids got pirate names too...our boys were "Brave Brody" and "Rip Tide Richie!" ;-)

Once on board, all the little mateys helped look for the treasure map in the river, and also helped battle the "stinky pirate" by using the ship's water canons before retrieving the treasure chest from the river which was filled with lots of goodies for the kids.

 The adventure is perfect for kids between 3-8 years old.  Brody was a little young to get involved, but had fun nonetheless.  Richie, who is quite reserved sometimes when trying new things, felt very comfortable because the staff was very good at getting him involved.  He participated in all of the activities and had such a blast!

We seriously can't say enough about how much we all enjoyed it, and we will definitely go back for more adventures in the future!
