The Mini Tugboat!

8:16 AM Katy 6 Comments

My dad likes to build stuff too. Mostly boats. Here's his latest project:

Here are the plans he's working from:

But I think he's painting it more red white and blue. It's going to tow a pontoon boat in the 4th of July parade, held every year on the lake. We want to win first place for BEST FLOAT in the parade! My kids are going to be dressed as Popeye and Olive Oyl, riding in the tugboat.

Since this is also going to be the weekend of our big family reunion, one of my aunts in charge of designing the pontoon float wanted to know if I'd be willing to stand on the deck in a patriotic bikini.

LOL. My family is all about going nuts in pursuit of a goal. I'm sure I'm nothing like them.
