With Father's Day just around the corner I thought we could share some of our favorite dad memories.
My favorite memory of my dad is how he worked hard so my mom could stay at home.
When his company moved his job out of state during my senior year of high school, he chose to take the nice severance package they offered instead of packing us up and moving us all. He was 50 years old when that happened and knew that he could have an problem finding a new job but he knew it was the best thing for our family. He was able to spend time with his first granddaughter who was born that year and did find a new job where he's still working 18 years later.
Going fishing with him.
I remember going to camp with my dad and walking through the woods. We found an old burial plot and an old miners cabin once.
i don't have many. My father passed away when I was five. About the only thing I can remember as a child with him was riding horses and eating lemon drops. I still have a fondness for lemon drops!
my dad coaching my softball team. it was a great way for us to spend time together and i learned a lot from him there both on and off the field...
My dad and my brothers used to go hiking, fishing and camping at remote mountain lakes together. One time we were sitting around the campfire after dinner and the smoke kept blowing my way, so I kept getting up to move. And my dad said "smoke follows beauty". It wasn't much, but it was the only time he ever said anything like that to me. I was a teenager at the time. Even when I got married the first time he didn't comment of how I looked and I didn't ask either.

When I was little, my Daddy used to put on little shows for my siblings and me at bedtime. We'd all get tucked into bed and he'd come in and do something silly to make us laugh before he kissed us goodnight and turned out the light. My favorite one was when he came in and lip-synced with the radio playing Karma Chameleon. He put a towel on his head held in place by his old Army hat to mimic Boy George's look at the time, and danced around like Boy George did while he lip-synced to the tune. It was the best!
My dad died when I was about 9 yet the fondest memories were him and I just sitting on the porch outside talking about anything. I always felt loved and safe around him.
I have so many great memories with my dad. One of my favorites though is whenever we were sick and had to miss school we would go to work with Dad bc he owned his own business. Whenever we went to work with dad we always got to go out to lunch at Applebees with him and my grandpa. I can't remember how many times we were "sick" just so we could spend the day with them
dont have any
