Searching for Gold Doubloons!

*** I posted some other beach pictures pretty late last night so if you missed those, be sure to scroll past this post. ***

Ahoy, mateys! A pirate left some treasure at the beach on Monday and a map washed up in our condo, of all places!

James was a little bit grouchy when he came upon the map, but his grumpiness soon went away and he was EXCITED to hunt for treasure! {By the way, don't be deceived by those jammies that say 4th of July. It was the 3rd of September.}

This is when I told him that if I didn't see an excited face pretty quickly we'd have to put the map outside for someone else to find the treasure.

Lance and Baby Carlos.

Pirate Daddy 
{don't tell James but the treasure chest came with him on the treasure hunt!}

Someone stopped to look at a "caterpillar."

He was pretty serious about checking that map!

About this time James yelled, "Oh no! We forgot Daddy!" Anna told him that she suspected we'd see him on the beach. Ha!

There he is!

His booty: a pirate book, pirate stickers, an eye patch, an earring, a sword/knife, and some doubloons!

Found some wildlife on our way back. See the turtle? We see him pretty often down there.

How cute is that!! I am totally stealing this idea and doing a treasure hunt for AM when she gets older! ...Did Mr. Eddie help empty the bottle that the map washed up in!?!? ;)
