Starting with our neighbors, who my kids are fairly certain really are real-life pirates:
The always popular pirate mini-golf:
My son wearing his ever-present pirate costume:
And my daughter, Magpie, also enjoying the pirate garb:
And look! How cute, pretending she is a pirate with an eye patch like the one on her tee shirt:
And today? That's right, in a stunning example of life imitating art, here is my daughter sporting her very own eye patch:
Which leaves me with just one word left to say... AARGH.
PS The kid (and her eye) is gonna be fine. Her mother - after a trip with three kids to the ER - needs a vacation from her vacation. I am reminded why I am a vacation avoider in the first place.
