This a side most people do not see of my husband, the daddy side.  He wrote this treasure hunt in a matter of minutes after looking at a print out of pirate lingo.  This was my favorite part of the party.  Enjoy.


This
is the place where ye love to swim.

But
today it’s the place where yer treasure hunt begins!

 

You’ll
find the next clue where we welcomed yer hearties.

At
the front door where they entered the party.

 

Sometimes
for dinner we cook on the grill.

Go
there at once…or the scallywags will!

 

X
marks the spot where ye planted yer seed

Ye
must start diggin’…there’s a clue that ye need!

 

Ahoy!
To the place where we go to get mail!

You’ll
find yer next clue for yer next place to sail.

 

Pa
has a tree where you swing. Remember?

Now
go to your swing.  Shiver me timbers!

 

You’re
close to the treasure…don’t forget to say thanks!

But
before you can get it, ye must…WALK…THE…PLANK!

 

When
Daddy comes home it’s the first place he goes.

To
get Diet Coke to drink ‘til it comes out his nose.
