This will be a regular, monthly get-together for all the Housedads in the group. At first we'll do it at my house in Renton (its a big house in the rural boonies, plenty of room for Dads and Kids), and as members join from different areas we can setup new meetups for different areas and begin scheduling park playdates and so forth.
For this first one, lets just get to know each other and each others kids! My only child is an infant(eight weeks, about twelve by the time of this meetup) so infants welcome, toddlers welcome, everybody welcome! We have video games for older kids (or for the Dads, if there are no older kids) and a selection of brews for the dads (for tasting, heavy drinking strongly discouraged). I imagine most of the kids around will be younger infants and toddlers as this will be during school hours. We can hang out, swap diaper changing stories, blow off each others heads in Halo, and generally feel free to be guys again even though we're Housedads!
Start time round noonish so everyone has plenty of time to get older kids off to school and finish up house chores, and no set ending time--we're all Dads, we'll leave when we have other crap to do!
(Note:While decisions regarding the health and safety of ourselves are our own prerogative, decisions regarding the health and safety of groups are everybody's business. As such, I ask all attendees to refrain from smoking during the Meetup; if you must smoke we have a giant yard and you can go way in the back of the apple orchard and smoke there, just not by the house! That said, a Housedads Cigar Tasting night should probably be arranged sometime soon...)
