Welcome to the West Coast Dad Collective

The birth of this blog reminds me of the birth of my first son.

Welcome! This is the first blog post for the West Coast Dad Collective. The first post is always tough because at this point we don't know who is reading this. So of course we don't want to waste any of our best material here. We're not going to pull out the "A" grade stuff. At this point you're probably already realizing how much fluff this paragraph has.

My name is Neal and I am a father to two wonderful boys. My best friend Tim is a father to two wonderful girls. Even though we are on separate ends of the west coast, we've managed to stay close and it's been amazing seeing my buddy develop as a dad. We've got different styles for sure but I think we can both respect what the other dad is doing. That's part of what this blog is about. The other part is just a chance for Tim and I to try and make each other laugh with the randomness that comes out of our minds. I think you'll enjoy it too and maybe learn some lessons about fatherhood. I know we're constantly learning too.

Thanks for checking out this blog. Check in regularly. It's going to be good.
