Being a good dad is something that almost every man with a child aspires to be. Fatherhood is one of the most important jobs a man can ever have. It comes with so many responsibilities that can seem overwhelming at times. The look of a genuine smile on the face of your child however, would have to be one of the most rewarding and heart warming things for parent in my opinion. Well if that is the best thing a dad can see from his child, then this father in England should officially win the dad of the year award. This guy planned out an elaborate treasure hunt for his 7 year-old daughter before she was even born! That’s thinking ahead to quite a degree. Well, the day finally came for her to find the clues and see what treasure awaited her. Check out this 7 year-olds hidden room pirate treasure hunt, and the bond between father and daughter.
Before this little girl was born, he mother and father boarded up a section of the house attached to her room and painted over it and never said a word. Well when she turned 7, she wanted some pocket-money, so her dad sent her on the task of cleaning out the wooden window box. Little did she know she was about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime….well maybe not quite that big. For a 7-year-old though, it’s a pretty big adventure.
After grabbing everything out of the box, she found a treasure map waiting at the bottom for her. Her and her dad deciphered it and realized that there was a hidden room with pirate’s treasure somewhere in the house!
She and her father followed the map to the top of the staircase. They then figured out that the secret door that is indicated on the map was in her own room!
Apparently this little girl is pretty smart, because she already knew a part of the wall in her room that felt hollow.
Dad brought in his trusty saw and cut a small piece of the wall where the little girl indicated she thought the secret room would be. Mom and grandma sit with her and document the whole thing.
There it is! Whoever left that treasure map went to some pretty great lengths to hide their treasure. Hopefully it was worth it.
Sitting in the room was a tiny little treasure chest! The legends of pirates living in the house at one time must be true!
She was definitely rewarded handsomely for her efforts in finding this long-lost pirate treasure. Look at all that stuff! The look of pure joy on her face had to have been the biggest reward for her parents though.
She made it a point to show off all the loot she collected.
That’s one pretty great adventure wouldn’t ya say? This is definitely something this little girl will always remember.

What did I say? This guy deserves dad of the year award right? That is some pretty elaborate planning, all before his daughter was even born! Once she is older I’m sure she will come to realize it was her parents planned this whole thing. That will almost make it even more special, knowing that your parents put that kind of work in just to see a smile on your face. That is true parental love right there.
