When I woke up this morning I had no idea I was surrounded by pirates. My first clue was when Ella growled at me "Shiver me timbers!" when I handed her a cup of juice, but even then I still wasn't entirely aware I was the middle of an adventure. As the morning progressed (and I became more conscious with the aid of caffeine) I realized that not only were my two beautiful girls saying "Argh!" more than usual, they were trekking through the house while looking at a piece of paper that looked suspiciously like a map. Even the cat was in on the game, wearing a little bandanna around his middle while riding around like a prince inside a tote bag. "Looking for buried treasure?" I asked innocently. "Yes," Annabel answered. "We're trying to find the TV remote."
