Teen Mom Jenelle Evans continues to bask in the afterglow of her recent engagement to Gary Head as the two of them continued their relatively drama free life together with a family trip to a pirate ship with Jenelle’s son Jace. The adventure comes just just three days after Jenelle accepted Gary’s proposal and eight months after Jace’s last piratical themed outing when Jenelle booked Pirate Adventure for an afternoon.
The trio seemed to be having a blast as MTV cameras captured it all for the upcoming third season of Teen Mom 3. (You can see the MTV video camera in the bottom photo) Jace had a blast as he got picked up by a pirate and even attempted to give Gary Head a spin in his stroller.
Jenelle tweeted her excited anticipation early Saturday:
Taking jace to see the pirates of the Caribbean boat in downtown Wilmington today. he is going to e SO EXCITED! Then waiting on the fiancé
She later tweeted a screen cap of a text conversation with Gary in which he sent a photo of Jace strapped in his car seat and ready to go, along with the message, “Surprise Your mom texted me this morning. Jace said he wanted to go to the ‘pirate boat.’”
But it wasn’t just any “pirate boat,” it was the HMS Bounty – or at least a replica of the HMS Bounty. The famous replica was built for the 1962 film Mutiny on the Bounty and was later used in the film Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Mans Chest. Here are the full deets from the ship’s web site:
The HMS Bounty is one of the most famous ships in the world. Known for the storied mutiny that took place in Tahiti in 1789 on board the British transport vessel, the current Bounty, a replica, has survived to tell the tale. Built for the 1962 movie Mutiny on the Bounty with Marlon Brando, HMS Bounty sails the country offering dockside tours in which one can learn about the history and details of sailing vessels from a lost and romanticized time in maritime history. Since her debut in Mutiny on the Bounty, HMS Bounty has appeared in many documentaries and featured films such as the Edinburgh Trader in Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Mans Chest with Johnny Depp.
And just in case that wasn’t enough background research for you, we also turned up a video of the ship’s arrival in Wilmington as well as a report from local television station WECT:
But enough of all that square-rigged sailing mumbo jumbo, let’s get back to Jenelle, Gary and Jace!
Although the HMS Bounty looked like a lot of fun, it wasn’t the only adventure for Jenelle and her motley crew. She tweeted Staurday afternoon, “Hahahaha running from paparazzi with @gary_head is fun.”
Oh, and the adventure looks to continue into the evening! “Going out tonight downtown with @gary_head ” she tweeted.
Though Jenelle and Gary did have a rather bitter (albeit brief) falling out, they do seem great for each other – I don’t even think the haters can arrrrrghue that!
