Fatherhood Spotlight: Dylan Mooney

You may not know Dylan Mooney by name yet, but you likely know his daughter, Baylor. A video of Baylor dancing to a Beyonce song while holding a corndog has brought joy to people around the globe. While she has certainly been the one in the spotlight, we thought we’d turn it to her dad…

Review: The Lost World of Dragons

The Lost World of Dragons is an interactive exhibit brought to our community thanks to the May Museum (1595 N. Sierra Street – in Rancho San Rafael Park). We’ve been fortunate enough to share some of the May Museum’s past exhibits, such as Toytopia and the Hall of Heroes. I really loved seeing my childhood…

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…

Best of Reno Dads 2018

Dad Spotlight: Andrew Pointer

As Christmas fast approaches, we turn our dad spotlight to Andrew Pointer – a veritable Clark Griswold. Not only is he a major Christmas decoration enthusiast, he’s a loving father and lover of holiday traditions. For those families that enjoy touring around Reno and drinking in the Christmas lights and decorations, Andrew offers a hidden…

NEW SHOW: The Unbelievables Christmas Spectacular

The air is cold and crisp in Reno again. As I drive through my neighborhood on the way home each night, I spot another house that is newly festooned with brightly colored lights and lawn ornaments. No denying it – it’s Christmastime! If you’re ready to really jumpstart your Christmas spirit, I highly recommend getting…

35 Family Halloween Costume Ideas

I wouldn’t have expected that I’d be advocating for family Halloween costumes, but here I am. I’ve always aggressively rejected the “matchy-matchy” gimmick. If my wife and I were even wearing the same color shirt, I’d go change. But, perhaps I’ve fully embraced this dad role, because now I look forward to planning our family…

More than 50% of Northern Nevada Students are Falling Behind

How important is it to be at reading proficiency levels by 3rd grade? Interestingly, it’s a strong indicator of whether a student will graduate from high school on time or at all. 95% of high school dropouts struggled with reading proficiency by 3rd grade! So, how’s northern Nevada doing? Not great – less than 50%…

Nanagrams Book: Names for Grandmothers-to-be

Grandmother. Grandma. MeeMaw. Baba. Apparently “Granny” just isn’t a good fit for all grandmothers. I don’t blame them – sometimes a grandmother doesn’t feel like she is a Nana or a GranGran and all the connotations that are associated with some of these monikers. And these nicknames stick with them their whole lives. But, there…

The Family that Runs Together, has Fun Together

I love the opportunity to take part in wholesome family activities that don’t involve a screen. That’s why, even though I don’t consider myself a runner, I jump at the chance to do “fun runs.” Many of them come in the form of a 5k, which is just over 3 miles. I hesitated, for a…
