Last week I enjoyed a day in Annapolis with my mom and my cousin's family out on the Pirate ship. Crablegs Clay and Gangplank Grant had a great time, as did Jackpot Jack and Greedy Grace. If you haven't gone out on the Pirate Ship I recommend it -- even the extremely hot day did not discourage the kids. Their favorite part was shooting down a stranded pirate we came across in the bay, and shouting pirate phrases like "shiver me timbers" and "AAARGH!"
Clay is feeling good these days. Each day that he wakes us up with a smile and a request to get breakfast going I am thankful.
