a pirate party

Over Memorial Day we went to TX to have a Cosby family reunion and have a pre-wedding reception (preception?) for Jacob and Lauren (who are getting married in a week!). Anna and Levi were, of course, elated to be at Grandma's house. Before the other cousins arrived, Anna had a dress-up dance party with Grandma and filled Grandpa's bird feeder.

In case you didn't know, Anna's 3...

Levi, meanwhile, climbed the stairs and played at the water table.

Once the other cousins came, Grandma broke out the pirate costumes (which she MADE!) and led the grandkids on a treasure hunt that ended in candy and fruit snacks and nicknacks from SF Chinatown that they all adored.

Ruth throws awesome parties, and along with the super-fun grandkid pirate party (which included a hideout upstairs) she also threw a great old-fashioned ice cream social for Jacob and Lauren and I proceeded to eat all the Bluebell I could manage in 3 days. Oh how I miss that ice cream. Here's one of the cakes that we made and some shots from the party. (By the way, most of these pictures are courtesy of my sister-in-law, Anna)

Thanks for the fun trip Grandma and Grandpa! We'll see you next week!
