Dad Jokes and the Importance of Laughter in my Family

Perhaps one of the greatest contributions I bring to my household and my children is the time-honored tradition of dad jokes. If you aren’t already familiar, a dad joke is a joke that elicits groans and eye rolls because it’s just the right mix of corny and punny. My family has always seemed to have…

Dad Spotlight: Zach Conine

You may not know Zach Conine yet, but you should! After all, he was elected to be our Nevada State Treasurer this past fall. We had an opportunity to sit down and chat with Zach, and we think you’re going to love him. He’s down to earth, funny, and a really engaged dad. We hope…

The Annual Toy Purge

Thanks to Netflix, you may have been exposed to Marie Kondo, and her love of cleaning up a good mess. It’s a movement that’s sweeping the nation (+1 dad point for that pun). As such, you may be finding yourself adding projects to your to do list that include straightening up drawers, cleaning out the…

Nerf Gun Wall

Reno dad, Jason Lintner, has an arsenal of NERF guns in his house (well, let’s say they’re his son’s). If you’re like me, you know that management of these toys is usually difficult – they’re either scattered across the house or piled in a box somewhere. So, Jason decided to build a NERF gun wall…
