While taking pictures of these sentimental heirlooms I have sometimes wondered about my own two sons. I have thought about what it is that I would pass down to them. I do not own anything particularly special that my father gave to me. I do not possess anything from my grandfathers either. I have memories. I have some pictures that I hold dear, but I do not have any particular item. I may actually have that item now though.
This trip is in a month from now so keep an eye out for the post about how it went. Not going to lie but my expectations are very high. We're shooting for "adventure of a lifetime" but I'm willing to settle for "epic trip with best buddy". Also, if this trip is as awesome and manageable as it seems, we might look to bring both of our families next time. But for now it is two dads recharging and getting away from it all (very important part of being the best dad you can be!) Adventure is out there and we are stoked!
One of the benefits of having a Dad blog is that I can share with others some of the things that I think are worth sharing. Now, whether or not you run out and experience those things is up to you. I'd like to think I have good, trustworthy taste but... I'm not without bias. Here are some of my "hot" finds.
So why another dad blog now? Now because we see that the conversation has evolved. Where as a dad blog started 5 years ago would be about fighting the stereotype of the bumbling dad who can’t change a diaper or make a meal without setting himself on fire, now we can go further. We can explore this topic with more nuance...
