Watery skirmishes.....!!

On Aimee's 25th birthday her friends (knowing her love of all things yarrrrrrrrr!) clubbed together and bought her this blow-up pirate ship. To be honest I wasn't amused, can you imagine how much air it takes to blow this baby up and it's huge, taking up a lot of space in the pool. The thing is, that once it IS all inflated (electric pump), the cannons at the side (attached to a hose) actually squirt water, there's blow up swords, shields and hats, well what can I say..it's hard not to have fun and every birthday since, pirate scuffles ensue throughout the summer months. It's Aimee's birthday today, so I leave you with these few words.....LET THE BATTLE BEGIN.....!! If I'm not around much today you'll understand why..hope you have a fabulous weekend.....

  21. Bon anniversaire from France, Aimée! I envy your boat, but, as I have no swimming pool, I can't imagine putting such a vessel on or in my car to drive to the beach! :o))

  25. That is one fierce looking pirate! I'm glad I don't have to deal with her, 'specially on her birthday. I understand Australian pirates get really wild and crazy on their birthdays. Well, it's only a rumor, but still...

    Have a great time!
