My friend Noe.V asked his readers to write up a blog stating why we/I love games. It is a somewhat difficult topic to tackle as I have never given it much thought. I just do. But that sort of answer is a cop out and inferior to anything I could come up with if I gave it true thought. So here we go.
My first memory that I can recall of video games is a bit of a mish mash. I remember arcade games. Arcade…Continue

This past Halloween was the best yet for our family. Mainly because my little one Aidan did so well with trick or treating. For those not in the know, my little guy has Down Syndrome. He has always done remarkably well in terms of development, though there are still delays…

Well the Star Wars Celebration VI was last month in Orlando Florida. My family and I drove down from Virignia to attend (well really for ME to attend). Luckily room and board was provided by my awesome father in law living only 15 minutes away or less even.
Some of the cool stuff that happened while down there? George Lucas made a suprise appearance at the Clone Wars panel with Dave Filoni. He then went on to appear at the next panel with Seth Green for their new…Continue

Hey everyone. Just wanted to share some amateur photos from this past Fourth of July. I always remember last second how to increase exposure time on my old digital camera. Mostly we try to play with sparklers to make interesting designs in mid-air.
Most of the photos feature my eldest son and his…Continue

I guess kids are just unknowing and therefore need education in manners. My two year old Aidan (who has DS) likes to play and run around like any other kid. But I feel some of these older kids 4-6 years old should know better then to push, shove or step on my kid and other smaller ones.
Yet the parent or guardian is not looking at what their kid just did, so if I am a jerk to their kids, I look like a bully.
How do you handle a situation where you want to make sure your kids…Continue
May 4th is my wifes birthday. Luckily for my family, she WANTS to see the Avengers, so tickets are already paid for. And for the past 6 years since meeting, a marvel movie has opened on or around her birthday. So lucky for her son and I, we get to celebrate with a new movie every year.
And to make it an…Continue
Being my first post here, I guess I can introduce myself. My name is Fabian and I am a geek dad. My sons are 17 years old and 2. Yes that's a huge gap. And I am grateful for the help my eldest son gives to my wife and I with his little bro. Live in Virginia and I love to read and get outdoors and build stuff (though not very good at it).
I am currently training him to love Star Wars, Blade Runner, and all thinks Geekdom. We will see how he takes to it. Hope to post more…Continue
