Benefits of Playing Outdoors

This weekend, I went with a good friend of mine (I’ll call him Luke) on a two night backpacking trip. I took my five oldest kids (ages 13, 11, 9, 8, and 5) and Luke took his three oldest (ages 11, 10 and 8, all boys). Because they never went on an overnight pack packing trip before, I decided to do a Continue reading “Benefits of Playing Outdoors”

How To Make Overnight Oats

When it comes to food, I often get on a kick where I’ll make one thing I really enjoy for a week or two and happily munch away until I either get tired of it or find something else that interests me.  For the past week, I have gotten back into making overnight oats.  They are delicious, filling, and as nutritious (or not) as you want to make them.

Today, I’m going to cover the basics of making overnight oats and what you can add to the oats to improve their flavor and nutrition, because let’s face it, oatmeal by itself is about the nastiest food known to Western Civilization. Continue reading “How To Make Overnight Oats”

Get Out of my House!!

For most of us, summer is basically here already.  While the “unoffical” start is Memorial Day, the nice weather makes me want to get outside and do things.  I want to be out in the sun, with the family, enjoying the day and each others company.  Yet, as simple as this may seem, I’m seeing a disturbing trend these days with families, and especially children.  There seems to be a lack in the desire to spend time together outside.  Today I’ll go over why this is a problem, and what you can do to maximize your summer.

Be Your Own Man

Do you guys know that couple that are always doing something together?  You rarely ever see them apart and they tend to engage in all the same activities together.  Last weekend I witnessed a couple like this.  The guy a legit hard working guy and his fiance a good mom, but they have a flaw; they feel the need to spend every free second together.  This is commonplace for many married couples I see, and in my opinion, it leads to a boring, miserable existence.  Today I’ll go over why this is toxic to you, your wife, and your relationship and what you can do about it.

The Easyway to Quit Drinking

As some of you know, I did a post not too long ago about how I quit smoking.  2018  seems to be a year of change for me as I have put another habit I had wanted to quit to rest; alcohol.  I’ve found that despite the title of this post, that I had a harder time kicking booze than cigs.  Today I’ll give you guys a recap on why I decided to give up the sauce and how I decided to make it final.
