Although Bryce is only two, he knows the #toysrus logo. We drove past and he started asking for toys and pointed. We pulled over and he stood in the deserted parking lot just gazing at the building once full of childhood treasures. As we left, he said “Bye, Toys”.... it’s funny, I remember being devastated when the roof of the store on Annapolis Rd collapsed during the blizzard when I was a child. Can’t believe they’re all gone. #igdc #vsco

It’s almost like a tradition now, this is my third time being welcomed into the @nationalbuildingmuseum to view one of its installations and I’ve yet to be disappointed! #funhousedc opens today to the public and I encourage anyone in or visiting DC between now and September to pay it a visit! . . #igdc #emptyfunhouse #makeportraitsnotwar #snarkitecture

One of the most important parts of being a father is understanding that everything you do has the chance of being imitated by the ones who look up to us. Since Bryce and I are trainheads, I’ll put it in rail terms. As a dad, I’m laying the tracks, building the infrastructure, and creating the path that my son will travel down. Once you realize that, you live your life completely different. I’m happy to team up with @Allbirds to share how I’m spending my Father’s Day, downtime with my little guy. Since our kids will follow in our footsteps, might as well have some comfortable kicks for the walk 🤷🏽‍♂️ #WeAreAllBirds
