Wow… Could someone please tell me where September went off to? We are quickly approaching Killian hitting 9 months old on Oct 7th. It’s crazy to think about. (Dillon takes a deep breath and tries not to think about the swift moving hands of time chasing after him)
Welcome to my first monthly favorites! I don’t know how much of these have to do with fatherhood, but all of them have to do with what I have enjoyed this month and I want to share these things with you!
Let me know in the comments what you have been enjoying!
The Maine-Pioneer (2013)
This album is so good. More on the American Pop Rock side, this album includes one of my favorite songs of theirs: “Misery” Give the whole thing a listen here:
Jake and The Never Land Pirates / Outlander
I have to give a shout out to Killian’s favorite pirate, Jake. I am the oldest of three boys (I am 26 and my youngest brother is now 14) So I remember watching baby shows with him and they were not so great. But now, baby shows and kids shows are literally amazing. Jake and the Neverland Pirates is actually really, really good. A cohesive story line, mini movies, and the writing is superb. Also, as anyone could expect, Captain Hook steals the show.
Last night Korina and I started watching Outlander. This is a show on Stars based off of a book. It’s about a nurse from World War Two who, while on a second honeymoon in Scotland, gets sent back in time via some witchy magic to Scotland in 1743. It is really good and the cinematography is great. Give it a shot!
The Ashen Hollow!
I watch a bunch of folks on Youtube and one of my favorites is Jake “The Ashen Hollow”. Not only is he a close personal friend of mine in real life but he is an expert in Dark Souls Lore. He is a dad and a husband and a damn good drummer! Check out this video:
Book: Comic Books count right?
MARVELS: THE HAUNTED MANSION
A little while ago Disney bought Marvel Studios. And people got upset. I loved the idea, I also love Disney soooo. But with the purchase of Marvel came comic books. They just did a five book run based on the world of The Haunted Mansion (my favorite ride in Disney World) and it is spectacular. It’s an original story based off the characters and story lines hidden in the ride.
When I started this dad blog way back in the good ol summer of 2016 I had no idea what I was doing, still don’t, but one of the first things I did was try to find other bloggers doing what I do, trying to figure out my voice in the crowd, wanting to make friends because dading is a strange thing and it’s nice to have comrades. So, I hopped on to the reader, typed in the search bar, dad blog (or something dad related) and there pops up this guys post about dad life. I was like “cool! That was easy!” I followed him and read his post and commented and then went on to look at his massive body of blogging work only to find out, the guys not just a dad blogger, but he is primarily a “how to write” really well blogger! If you are interested in learning how to write better and want a little dad knowledge and cute pictures of his son, THOR!, then go give him a follow!
Event: WE WENT TO THE ZOO!
Oh me, oh my! We took Killian to the zoo and it was outstanding, but rather than tell you about it feel free to watch the vlog here:
I am always running out of storage on my phone due to the massive amounts of photos of Korina, Killian and the random things I send Korina from the store asking if we need them. Oh, and selfies, lots of hilariously horrible selfies.
Whats a dad to do? Download google photos and let it back up all of the photos on your phone for free…..it’s amazing, and is changing my life. Download it, it’s all free and it’s all good!
AAAAND My Starbucks Order:
Trenta (32oz) iced coffee with cream and 5 pumps of Vanilla [NO classic syrup]
Well that does it for this first favorites blog. It was fun to write and fun to take a moment and review this past month and think about what all I, and my kick ass family, have been up to.
Thank you so much for reading! Tell me something about the month of September that was awesome for you? Eat something cool? Drive a fancy sports car? Let me know down below!
You’ve Got This!
