Making memories at C2E2.

The Fandads attended the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo last weekend and as always we had a great time. Last year my daughter went dressed up as Cinderella, this year she brought her Captain Phasma costume with her, but decided against wearing it when we got there. Then she wanted to wear it....then she didn't. Ah, kids and their indecisiveness. Don't all parents love when their kids can't make up their minds?

Running "on your left" in Washington D.C. or Look at me trying to be sporty #100.

Last week I posted the above photo to our Instagram page and asked the question "What does this have to do with being a #FitDad?" We, let me answer that question for you, it is actually the beginning of a new way of life for me. If I want to return to the Spartan Race and finish this year I must take my training seriously.

Exercising with khakis? Yeah, it can happen.

Everyone is always trying to find that level of comfortability. As a dad, I want to dress as comfortable as possible when doing my day-to-day routine. I wake up early, get my daughter ready for school and then when I get back home I want to rest for a little while before jumping into my dad duties. 

So what's the best way to be relaxed and still look good...or at least somewhat good in my case? Keep reading and I'll let you know what my new secret is.

Trying to get some #ToughRelief with Fisherman's Friend

Disclosure: Fandads have partnered with Life of Dad and Fisherman's Friend for this promotion. All thoughts and opinions are our own. 

Have you ever heard the saying that people are in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime? Yeah, I thought that was a bunch of hooey, but then I started thinking about the people that have come and gone in my life. When you look at it, some people have a purpose in your life. Then, there are those that say they are your friends, but end up being nothing but a pain in your....well, let me tell you a story about one of these "so-called" friends.

First official trailer for FINDING DORY is out!

One of the great things about having kids, other than the tantrums, the dirty diapers or the confusing homework, is that I get to pass down some of my favorite movies to them.  Little by little I have been introducing them to movies that I loved as a kid and movies that I think they need to see.
