  1. Mr. T I so have a few questions about Pirate Day. Will the kids dress up for this day?
    Bring in Pirate stuff etc…? I checked the web pages and didn’t get much information. (I know I am brain dead at this point, but trying to get all the ducks in a row). Also do you need a snack? I can attempt to create a cake that is a pirates boat. I haven’t done one of these since Kyle was one but would love to do it. Tammy
