Caption The Batman!

October 31, 2013 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

A big Bat-Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption! Here’s my favorite, from Andy Miller, co-founder of The Handsome Father and dad to a similarly-aged son. He pretty much wins for being the most accurate.


May your Halloween Day be filled with joy and laughter and your Halloween Night be free of sugar-induced meltdowns!

QuickPic: The Thrills of Summer

July 24, 2013 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

I’m sorting through my thoughts about our recent trip to visit JJ’s birthparents. It’s taking me longer than I’d planned… In the meantime, please enjoy this montage of JJ performing what appears to be a one-man “Thriller” flash mob at a fountain in downtown Salt Lake City.

Ah, the thrills of summer!

QuickPic: Snow Day

As spring is finally starting to creep in, I thought I’d share these few (and rare, non-Instagram) photos of JJ watching Papa shovel snow from a couple weeks ago.

I’m not sure why I think posting photos on my blog is filler — I could look at these all day…






Silly Hat Day: A Story in Pictures

March 1, 2013 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

On a cold, rainy day not too long ago, I had a brain fart of forethought, gathered all the hats from all over the house, and declared it henceforth be known as (cue trumpets)… Silly Hat Day!

In all honesty, I needed a break from playing superheroes (or coloring them, or watching them on TV). And it actually turned out to be more of a Silly Two-and-a-half Hours, but it was nonetheless a fun diversion during an otherwise dreary day.

Let the silliness commence!

I wonder if we've got enough silly to fill all these hats?


Silly Hat Day starts out a little on the grumpy side.



Have a Happy, Twisted Valentine’s Day!

I created this disturbing little Photoshop masterpiece on Valentine’s Day, probably the first or second year Papa and I were together. It features my much-less gray (but still gigantic) head on Papa’s bare-assed baby body. We always joked that this would be what our children would look like. Thank God we were wrong.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

QuickPic: Puppy Love

January 11, 2013 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

I sometimes worry that introducing a baby into our dog’s life when she’s middle aged (she’s 7) has been stressful for her. (Hell, it has been for her middle-aged fathers!) This captures a moment when I think she’s not minding too much.

QuickPic: Stars & Stripes for Dinner

November 6, 2012 | By Brent Almond | THINGS MY KID DIGS

Election night-inspired dinner for JJ: Old Glory composed of Gorton’s Tilapia fish sticks and ketchup stripes with Swiss and American (duh) cheese stars. Delicious AND patriotic!
