A Father’s Day Tribute for Dads

Believe it or not we’re already mid-way through June and Father’s Day is just a couple days away! In the midst of our summer adventures and fun vacations, let’s take a moment to let the guys know how much they mean to us with this Father’s Day tribute.

A Father’s Day Tribute for Dads

Dads are our first teachers

During my childhood, I remember my dad running along side me and holding  my bike steady as he taught me to ride without training wheels. I remember him taking the time surprise me with a doll and play with me. Looking back, I know he felt silly but I’ll never forget those times we spent together. Even through adulthood, my father continues to be my rock! He’s always there for me and even my little boy. So with Father’s Day pretty much upon us, I want to take a moment to recognize the man that taught me everything I know and who helped me become the strong woman and mother that I am today.

Dads play multiple roles

Just this one-day out of the year, we’ll let you take some credit. The guys of the household truly do help us keep it all together. Over the course of a single day, you go from playing superhero with the kids to a handyman that can fix just about anything…or at least give it your best shot! Whether they’re building a tree house in the backyard or a pillow fort in the living room, you give everything you have to even the smallest things.

We love family time with you

There’s nothing I love more than seeing my husband spend quality guy time with our little one! I remember being little and tagging along with dad, and I know that he will cherish those memories when he is older. Whether it’s watching a show or getting silly with a pillow fight, there’s nothing like spending quality family time with your dad.

So to all the dads out there, I want to say thank you for being the person that you are! I know we don’t always give you the credit you deserve, but we are thankful for everything you do. Make sure you say thanks to dad this Father’s Day!
