Well what can I say in words to capture just how I feel about our weekend! I have never had so much fun working so hard! It was an experience I'll never forget, and I know my entire family feels the same. We made it home fine, but all eyes were on the boat the entire way. I look forward to completing the work, and hope that some day, when you're in the vicinity, you can visit us at Pickwick.
I wanted to tell you how much fun (and work) it was to build that boat.
My three boys and I haven’t had a chance to spend time together like this in a long time. Every night when we got back to the hotel, we would talk about the day and then do all kinds of reminiscing about crazy things that we experienced growing up. It was a riot.
I would like to thank you and Brad for your generous efforts to make our boat a success. Whenever we needed a tool or help you guys were there.
PS: if you are ever in the Milwaukee area, give me a call. Maybe I can return some of that hospitality.
Well we launched our little boat on Labor day. All the relatives and friends were there. It was a huge hit and the thing actually floats!

After our last build we decided that it was time to possibly revise the format of the Building Memories Event. We are thinking that we could possibly lengthen the time of the build to five days and work fewer hours each day. This would give your family more time to do other activities or just take a day off. We could start the build on any day of the week and would end the week with a christening of the boat/s. There are many attractions within an hour’s drive which provide an opportunity to take a break from building a boat. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions that you think would make the event as fun & memorable as possible! Listed below are attractions in the area:
