A little creative fun

My son, Ian is 16.  Wow, where does the time go?  Anyway, he is a good kid, responsible hard working (works for Mom) and smart too.  We are really proud of him.  But he is a boy and love all the electronic toys, games, phone, texting.  Any of this sound familiar?  

Ian and his crew of friends

Most of the boys have been friend since elementary school.  One ingenious dad found out about a Crazy Cardboard boat race in our town.  Fun huh?  The little creative fun kept the boys occupied and off the computer and games too!  There were some very imaginative boats!
Amazing detail in the Pirate ship! 

Taking "Lola" (their boat) to the water

Four large boys + Lola = sinking off the dock 

Ian calling for an SOS 

Pour Lolo...she will be missed

We already have plans for next year's event.  Designer Tee shirts, a new boat design for sure..."Lola" #2?  Time will tell.  Perhaps Dad can design and create his dream sail boat?

Some serious "Bedrock" competition

All in all their cardboard boat project made for one fun and creative summer afternoon!
