Pirates & Indians

We have really been enjoying our annual membership at Thanksgiving Point this past summer. Ava's favorite Thanksgiving Point destination has been the dinosaur museum, which hosts fun activities throughout the year. One such activity was Pirate Night at the Dinosaur Museum. Christian came dressed as a swashbuckler.

One of the pirate activities was face painting. Although dressed in her pirate attire, Ava opted to soften her image by having a flower painted on her face instead of a skull and crossbones.

We're not sure that archery qualifies as a pirate pastime, but Ava took it very seriously nonetheless (so did Larry).

Christian made friends with one of the dinosaurs on display.

While Ava made friends with some fellow scallywags.

In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, the museum had a birthday party. One of the activities was to make Indian headdresses, which Ava and Christian decided to wear home.

They also had a face painting booth where Ava had Cinderella painted on her arm.

Christian was quite proud of his feathered headband.

Who knew that pirates and Indians could be so cute?
