My Son's 4th Birthday.
My Son wanted a pirate party for his 4th birthday. So my wife and I made a scavenger hunt for him and his friends. Since my younger son was almost a 1 years old, I thought it would be good to build a boat around a wagon so my younger son could keep up with the older kids. The most fun I had on this project was painting the ship. And this was probable the fastest project I have done in a long time. It took about 3 hours total. Most of that time was waiting for layers of paint to dry.
I like when projects like this get used multiple times. A few months later my wife and sons used the wagon in a charitable fun walk. It fit right in with the theme. There team name was the Whale Watchers. So I told my wife that the boat was Ahabs. She was not too fond of my Moby Dick, whale killing, reference at a kids event.
