So we went to Ashe county, NC to do some trout fishing and turkey hunting. Well Friday we fished for a few hours and did awesome...browns, brookies, and rainbows, biggest rainbow weighing in at 3.5 pounds! Saturday we heard the birds but the weather ended up shutting them down before we could get set up on them in the morning and no luck in the evening. Regardless the trip was excellent seeing it was me, my dad, my dad's friend who owned the farm, and my brother (which doesn't happen very often!) So we didn't think it could get any better, well much to my surprise I was wrong. The three of us are on our way home and my wife calls and at first I couldn't understand what she said and asked her to repeat it and then it hit me, she said "We are gonna have a baby" so yep gear up everyone I AM GONNA BE A DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited I can't stand it. So congrats to those of you who bagged a turkey I have yet to get my first and struck out again but you know I will take our first pregnancy over my first turkey anyday! I still have plenty of time this season to keep trying.....looks like my brewing may come to a screaching hault!

Congrats! Being a dad has been alternately the single best and single scariest experience of my life.

Hearty congrats! I certainly agree that it was the best and scariest experience of my life. Miss those days ... sometimes.

Congrats. Better get brewing and build up a supply. SWMBO will need it when she starts nursing. My wife would have one homebrew in the evening, and man, would the milk machine start cranking. Now my daughter is a state champion rower and my 13 year old boy is almost 6'2".
