Party Under The Big Top #11

Well, it’s that time again. Time to link-up one (or more) of your posts and connect with some people on Google+

I’ve been mostly absent from the blog this past week because the family and I were on vacation at Disney World. We had a great time and made some wonderful memories.

But enough about that, you didn’t come here to just read about me, you came here to join the party. So go ahead and get to it.

And please don’t forget to comment on a few of the other posts, that is after all what this whole party is about!

IN HIS OWN WORDS… WHO IS SUNSHINE DAD?

I consider myself to be a typical dude. I love football, I hunt, I fish, I do my own car repairs, I’m a member of Mad Cowford Improv group, if I need a handyman I go into the garage and get my tools, I do my own yard work, I carry a pocket knife, I love all things electronic, I believe the Bible is true, I’m a die-hard Florida Gator fan, I shave a couple of times a month, I cried during The Notebook, I build furniture out of old pallets… You know, all the typical guy stuff.

I also just so happen to be a stay at home dad of 4.

Nearly everyday of my life holds a new adventure, whether I’m ready for it or not.

  1. I’m never sure if I should comment on both yours and Lysa’s blog, but figured it can’t hurt to do both. Thanks this week’s Featured Act x 2 guy/Gary, I can enjoy being part of your weekly party! Have a great week!

If you could take 30 seconds and give me your thoughts about what you just read, I'd be grateful!
