IN HIS OWN WORDS… WHO IS SUNSHINE DAD?

Framed in Lavender Mike's Family Bio Collage

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.Happy Mother's Day From Mike & Lysa Graphic Party Under the Big Top Act 13 The Mother's Day EditionFramed in Lavender Lysa's Bio Picture Party Under the Big Top Welcome to My CircusFramed Lysa Wilds from Welcome to My Circus Bio Header Graphic
