Dadurday round 2 had arrived, and the original plan was to have Zoey, my 2.0, aka ZRex, lead one part of the BD, but she had so many great ideas she not only took over on part of the BD, she planned the whole thing.
Also this is moonshine festival weekend so the normal location, Main Street park was not available so we pulled a last minute pivot and relocated to the high school, which will be a great location for a second Dawsonville AO.
Toadstool and Lightweight got there early for the pre-run. ZRex and I got there a bit early to make final prep and decide where to have the event. Suarez and Boss baby rolled in and LifeLock emerged from the lightweight mobile and then Dunshire and his 2.0/FNG joined us during the warm up. Now on to the event
We moseyed to the football field and started at the goal line, I was in charge of the disclaimer and warm up
Copperhead squats were done
I then handed it of to ZRex to begin the BD
After the BD we circled up and did the COT
Convergence next Saturday, I posted info in slack
Florida residents recovery from hurricane Ian
Healing for PAX families
We then took the time to name the FNG/Dunshire’s 2.0 and landed on Gecko due to his love of PJ Mask.
With that, pray and time for coffeetria
We had coffee for the PAX and OJ for the 2.0s Also granola bars and bananas
We hung out for a bit and then everyone started heading out for the day.
I truly enjoy the concept of Dadurday, not my idea, I stole it from the Stuff worth trying podcast, but letting the 2.0s see where their dads go in the early morning, and be a part of the BD, is awesome. Also they get to see a side of us men that they usually do not see, and as we interact with the men around us we are setting the tone of how they will be as they grow.
Also with my 2.0 taking over and leading the BD, she did an awesome job, BTW. I have to say this was one of the best F3 moments ITG, for this year, hands down. Thanks to all the HIM that made her feel welcome and helped along the way to make the BD even better.
