The Guys Behind the Blog | July 2016

I'm back again today with another installment of "The Guys Behind the Blog". I love that each month I get to interview both Chris (here) and Noah (with our new "The Kids Behind the Blog" link up.)  

This month, Betsy and Laura left it up to us to come up with the questions!   Chris and I went back and forth brainstorming some ideas and finally settled on doing a somewhat "childhood" theme.  I love comparing Chris' childhood and interests to Noah's!  

What was your favorite TV show as a child? What's your favorite TV show that Noah watches?
Favorite tv show as a kid was GI Joe (cartoon) and Dukes Of Hazzard (non-cartoon). I like the Octonauts because it's the show that Noah is the most into currently, so we can play with the different characters before, during, and after the show.

What was your favorite board game to play as a child? What is your favorite board game to play with Noah now?
Favorite board game as a kid was Sorry, and then Monopoly when I was in my teens. My favorite game to play with Noah right now is probably Loopin' Louie because it's a game that I never had as a kid and it's cool to see his hand/eye coordination to make sure Louie doesn't knock over his chips.

Who was/is your favorite superhero and why?
I used to really love Batman growing up. I'd watch the old Batman tv show from the 1960's with Adam West and Burt Ward. It was fun to see him battle all the bad guys (Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, etc)

How did you spend your summers growing up?
I'd play outside a lot in the summer and go to the beach as well as the town pool or even the man-made lake we joined for a few years. As you can see, it was a lot of things that were outside. We'd occasionally play Nintendo too, but that would be at night or on rainy days, haha.

How do you think Noah is similar (and different) to you as a child?
I think Noah can be a little shy in some situations, so that's similar to me. He's different in the sense that he has so much technology at his fingertips (literally) that he can lay in bed and watch tv shows on his iPad. I don't think I even had a tv in my room until I was maybe 7 or so, and I didn't get a VCR until years and years later and Noah has maybe 100 shows pre-saved on the Tivo so he can literally watch anything he wants. When I was little and watching tv, I'd either look to see what was on in the TV Guide or else I'd switch to the channel that scrolled what was on.


  1. Kids seriously are spoiled with all this technology! But it can be also be a burden so I'm torn. I've never heard of Loopin Louie! Ill have to check that game out!

  2. I love that so much of his summer was spent outside. Kids and phones, ipads, computers, gaming systems, TV's it is just WAY too much and I don't like it, AT ALL! As for the TV shows my brother loved both of those... those and He-Man too :P.

  3. I love the questions you came up with - comparing himself to Noah is fun!

  4. Oh my gosh! Sorry! I totally loved that game! That and the game of life. I always had like 10 kids and needed two cars LOL. Oh and Monopoly Junior!

  5. Oh what fun questions!! Some of them in previous months weren't as interesting to me but these are great.

  6. We totally missed this month! Oops. It's our first month to miss in 15 months. O'well, life happens. :) I agree so much about technology! It's crazy. We used to spend summer days outside from sun-up until sun-down! Only coming in for a drink, lunch or supper.
