A childs play

DSC_4369

Since we moved to Alaró we have befriended many Brittish people. They are a hoot and I really enjoy hanging out with them. As I lived in London for a few years during the 80’s, I almost feel slightly British in their company 🙂 Anyhow, many of these people have a connection to yachting, in one way or another, and most of them also have very young children. I, being the mother of an adult woman, have completely forgotten what it was like to have a bunch of young’uns around the house (note that I also have a load of nieces and nephews who spent much of their time in my home). So needless to say, I felt a bit like an outcast when I arrived to Lucas 3rd birthday party.

I decided to be the self appointed photographer of the day (although nowadays everybody has a camera!).

Lucas mother Emma (right) and her South African friend Sarah planned this day in a most entertaining way! First the children had to decide whether they wanted to be:

Or:

Some of the kids had a hard time choosing…

Ages ranged from zero to…well…..a lot older.

They all set out for The Big Treasure Hunt through the immense Magliocchetti gardens.

…..and the lopsided pirate ship…

…to arrive at a huge crate (or, in this case a terra-cotta flower pot…) which was filled to the brim with goodies!

Hey Ho and away we gooooooo!

The wicked witch of the west gave up a good fight with a terrifying young pirate.

A close up of the young pirate. His performance was very convincing, perhaps we have a budding actor amongst us?

This poor dad had to watch from afar, I think he said 6 more weeks of crutches, poor thing!

Some children participated earnestly, while others found their own amusements.

You’re never too young to appreciate a cool Mercedes Cab!

DSC_4392DSC_4344Some children just went their own way…

…while others did not…

I think everybody agreed that it was a great party.

Daddy Nick (right) is a great chef and served up some fantastic dishes once the adventures were over.

DSC_4206DSC_4212So many children and so many parents. I am sorry to say I can hardly remember any names….

And I think I’ve filled this blogs kiddie quota for the rest of the year!

Cheerio my dears 😀
