I had no idea that being a husband and father could be so rewarding. Absolutely nothing can prepare you for fatherhood, you just sort of wing it and hope for the best. Don’t get me wrong there are times where it can be very, very challenging but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Becoming a father is truly the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I have an incredible wife and the most beautiful, happy little girl who is now just over a year old. Our second daughter is right around the corner and with her will come more challenges but even more rewards. I love family time. Whether its a family hiking excursion to local falls, touring maple farms and learning how syrup is made, checking out a music festival, or (Lauren’s favorite) seasonal berry picking, we try to be a fun and active family.
