This is my first contribution to the Life of Dad community. I figured I’d make my first post one that pretty much everyone here will be able to relate to, at least a little bit.

It all started on Christmas. I had wrapped one very special gift for my kids and hidden it in a secret location. I then wrote clues in limerick fashion. These clues were hidden at various locations around the house and would lead my kids on a treasure hunt for the big prize waiting for them at the end. I followed them around with the camera to catch all of the fun.

Finally, we got to the end of it all where the big reveal came. Rather than get all descriptive about the excitement in the air, I think I’ll just cut to the chase and show you the climactic moment by video…


Needless to say, there is so much more that could be said about this, but I’ll just leave it at this for now for sake of brevity. I have posted some of my other reflections on my blog, if you want to check that out. Otherwise, feel free to comment if you want to know more. In the meantime, rock on dads!
