    My father and I are both die-hard college basketball fans. We make it a point to go to games together when we can, and when we’re apart, we always Skype when our favorite team (UNC!) is playing. In 2009, he surprised me with tickets to the Final Four, where our team won it all! It is nice to have a special bond with my dad that my siblings don’t share.

    My dad DID NOT like any type of sport whatsoever. However, he was front and center for every baseball, basketball, volleyball game and track meet I participated in as a kid. He even was there for high school football games since I played in the band. He was such a wonderful and supportive father. I miss and love you Dad!!!

    Some people do everything with great love. He is one of those people.

    My fave times with my dad are family road trips or any long drive – we’ve done lots of cross-country trips. He’s a total road warrior and growing up as a driving family means I’m not scared to take my kids on long, LONG trips. Plus, he plays the guitar constantly. Love my dad!

    My dad always challenged us with long 25 & 50 mile long bike rides for fun on the weekends. He taught me not to be afraid to try and fix things for myself. And that it was ok to get my hands dirty, he’s been gone for nine years now…I sure miss him! Now I have fun teaching my daughter all the things he shared with me.

    When I was in college, I was famous for locking my keys in my vintage (old!) VW bug, so my dad stashed an extra key in my engine to free himself from emergency calls. I was so happy he’d done that when of course the next time I’d locked my keys in the car that I got the emergency key out and upon re-entry threw the extra key in the glove box and went on my way. I thought I was so smart.

    Of course at the very next stop I did the “expected” and locked my keys in the car AGAIN -WITH THE EXTRA KEY STILL STASHED IN THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT WHILE BEING PARKED IN A NO-PARKING TOW ZONE (!!!!!). Finally I bit the bullet and called my dear Dad who lectured me fervently then had to laugh at his (still) klutzy daughter. He brought me an extra key and could only shake his head in disbelief while rolling his eyes. My now college kiddo loves that story!

    My Dad was an avid camper and fisherman. Every year we would camp for family vacation. And when I say camp, I mean the REAL way. We often went to Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan and camped in Superior National Forest with no amenities with the exception of an occasional vault toilet. We slept on the ground in a tent, rain or shine. Mom would haul water from the lake and boil it. I remember Dad telling us he would take $50 for the whole week and that was mostly gas money! We ate a lot of canned meats and eggs. What wonderful, wonderful memories!

    My favorite memory of my dad teaching me how to change a tire. I was a sassy 16 year old and he ignored all of that and worked with me with love and patience. Bittersweet memory as he died when I was just 23. Would love another memory…

    My dad was always one of those guys who do something on a whim. We went to Canada to sight see on a weekend. We would hike trails in Ohio, then trout fish. We would go mushroom hunting every year. We would travel miles to find a good fishing spot. He would take us to the four wheel drive club.

    This is perfect! We are so lucky..we live just 80 miles from Duluth! It is our favorite place to go…even in the middle of winter snowstorms for our kids ballgames in high school and college! Memories..my dad..so many. I remember when I was a kid he would come in early in the morning and say..get up..it’s a beautiful day! When I had small children, he would take me to some “fun” shop (usually flowers or antiques) and watch my toddlers so I could look. Not because it was where he wanted to be, but he knew I would love it! Then he start canoe trips to the BWCA with the sons & son-in-laws, then grandsons. Jacob and Adam started when the was 6. Now the tradition has continued with my husband and kids..23 years later, it still continues! And of course..a great stop to Canal Park in Duluth on the way through!

    My husband is a great dad! He changed jobs (even moved us to another state) so he could have more time with us, always makes time for the kids after a full day of work and working around the house. Right now he’s on a daddy-daughter date with our youngest daughter!

    My family gathered at Eagle Crest Resort in Central Oregon in July 2008 to celebrate my Dad’s 80th birthday. I am the third oldest of eleven children, and we spent time around the dining table sharing stories and laughing until we cried! My Dad passed away six months later. I absolutely cherish that final family reunion.

    I have a great memory of my dad and I taking a walk together in a forest preserve near our home. I was about 12 and this was 50 years ago. I have kept and pressed an oak leaf from that time. I love and treasure this memory because, as oldest of six kids, I didn’t have that many times with just my dad all to myself!! He’s a special guy and he’s still doing well at age 87!!! This give-a-way prize would be a nice way to say “I love you, dad!”

    One of the greatest men I have ever known was my uncle Bill. My biological father was abusive and dropped me off on my aunt & uncle’s doorstep when I was just 13. They took care of me from day one and treated me like I was their own. My uncle was a big softie who made me special treats ( homemade biscuits and chocolate syrup), taught me how to swing a hammer, and made sure I knew the importance of forgiveness. I loved him with all of my heart and will miss him for the rest of my days.

    My daughters father is an amazing man. He is very family oriented and love spending time with his daughter. She is a daddy’s girl and she really looks up to her dad. I remember when she was learning how to walk she would always walk to her dad with a big smile on her face. He does a lot of outdoor activities with her and wouldn’t change a thing. I didn’t have a father in y life growing up so its amazing seeing the bond they share together. I take lots of pictures and cherish every moment.

    My husband made the decision to finish out his college degree two years ago to show our children the importance of education and to also better our situation financially. He’s on track to graduate at the end of 2015. It’s been difficult for him, as he works full time, and goes to school at night and on weekends, taking 9+ hours per semester, but he’s determined. He’s a great father and great inspiration.

    My husband is the best father to our three kids. Two are adopted – they are my great-niece and -nephew and he didn’t hesitate for even one second when I asked if they could come live with us because they were not in a good situation before. We went from one two year old to two 2 year olds and a 1 year old in the blink of an eye and he’s been just amazing to all three of them. Now we have two 7 year olds and a 6 year old and we have just the best time together.

    My pop LOVED to cook! He would cook up a storm, and sing while he was doing it. My bedroom was closest to the kitchen and I would most often wake up to the smell of fried potatoes and him singing away. Great memories! He taught us kids and many in-laws how to cook – better than any cooking show. Thanks!

    My husband loves Duluth Trading Co. He is the father of our 2 sons and has been a great dad to them. Camping, scouting, hiking….all with the boys.

    I went on a business trip with my dad to San Francisco when I was a high school freshman. We had so much fun on the pier and shopping at the biggest Old Navy I’ve ever seen. :)

    Entering for my DH,,father of our 3 children and Poppa to our 7 grandchildren. Favorite memories: my husband worked many many hours, so to keep the family close he would take us fishing all weekend. We had marathon fishing sessions… We would talk, laugh, joke, sometimes do homework… Those memories I will always treasure!

    My dad and I love going to concerts together. My favorite memories are when we went to the Ryan Adams and Wilco concert. It’s pretty cool that he enjoys the same bands that I do.

    My father, grandfather, great-grandfather and I would go fishing every year on father’s day weekend. This year will be the first that it will just be me and my father. It’ll be bittersweet but a tradition we want to continue doing.

    Yikes. I can’t celebrate fathers by choosing one over the other, the father of my heart or my father in law. Over the past 1.5 years I’ve lost both my father and my father-in-law…losing their battles with cancer. Each gave me so much to be thankful for.

    I call my dad the father of my heart, because I am adopted. He was a courageous man – a fully comfortable metro guy when the only type of dad at that time was a MANYLY MAN! He loved to cook, all things history, PBS, and inspired my love of good food, great friends and life-long learning.

    My father-in-law was a hunter, fisherman, work-with-your hands kinda guy, who modeled servant-leadership and love to his entire family. He loved me like I was a daughter of his heart…and I will forever be blessed with the way he loved my mother in law, because he taught my husband how to love me unconditionally through that example.

    How can I choose? I can’t….I won’t ….I will celebrate them both, and the legacy of love they left in this world.

    I adore spending time in the kitchen with my father. One of my earliest memories is of us making a batch of Rice Krispie Treats and he taking a small amount of flour and tapping a little on my cheeks and nose, so my mom could see we were baking all day. 20+ years later and whenever I’m home we still find ourselves in the kitchen working on our next creation!

    Twenty-one years ago my husband , our two daughters, and I moved into a 21 foot travel trailer on a 103 acre piece of land and we then proceeded to improve the land and built our wonderful off-the-grid, two story, beautiful home. This was the biggest and scariest adventure we have ever taken, but the results were fantastic! My husband was a Firefighter/Paramedic for the city of Berkeley, CA, three hours away, but he would make the commute nine times per month, so that we could live in our dream home and raise our daughters in a great rural setting with all the critters they could want. We now have an empty nest, and are more in love than ever before.

    When I was still in high school, my late dad and I had the opportunity to play a piano piece for four hands on my high school’s new grand piano. What a thrill that was to play with my dad! I miss him dearly and am grateful for the blessing of lovely, happy memories with my own father.

    One of my favorite moments with my dad was when he was teaching me to ride a two wheel bike. He spent weeks (as I was a scaredy cat) teaching me. He never lost patience. It just one way to show how much he cares for me and loves me.

    I remember going hiking with my Dad when we went camping. He’d always tell me “it’s a short, easy hike, come on!” It would turn out to be a LONG hike and never easy, but it was always fun. He knew I wouldn’t go if he told me it was long, but I was always glad I went even though I grumbled a lot afterwards.

    We used to listen for him to come home from work and would run down the lane to me him. He would pick us up and we would ride home in the back of his truck. He always had gum in the truck too, which was a real treat back then!!

    My dad is fantastic! When I was young my mother would put two french braids in my hair every morning before school. However, when I was about 7 or 8 she started to travel for work several days a week. Being a silly little girl, my concern was “who’s going to braid my hair for school?” My dad took me to the beauty salon and paid for the stylist to teach him how to braid my hair. That’s a dad who loves his daughter! Over the next several years, my dad learned to paint fingers and toes with nail polish, pick out “outfits” for his daughters, and play with Barbies. He never had any sons, but he completely embraced having daughters.

    I never met my dad due to divorce and some bad decisions made by mother. He died 2 years before I “found” him. So it was very important I give my son the best father ever. I am assured my son doesn’t have the empty “father” hole in his heart like me.

    My husband is the best father there is. He’s an Air Force chaplain who puts the needs of the airmen and my two boys above his own on a daily basis. He comes home tired after meeting so many needs at the end of the day but is always ready to take his boys to play soccer, kick ball, etc. until bedtime. My two little guys get SO EXCITED each night when daddy comes home. They greet him at the door every day, both saluting their hero. He’s amazing and I can’t imagine my (or their) life without him.

    The biggest lesson I’ve learned from any man in life is to have a PFA from my Step-Dad. PFA stands for Positive Fishing Attitude. When I was a kid, spending hours on the lake, fishing pole in hand, was NOT my idea of a good time. I’d pout and definitely not try to catch fish. Anyone who’s ever been fishing knows it ‘s a lot more fun when you’re actually trying. When I learned to enjoy fishing, not only for the catch, but for the solitude on the water, the closeness with nature and the laughter and conversation with my Step-dad, it because one of my favorite past times.
    I’ve learned that PFA can transfer to every situation in life. EVERYTHING is easier if you try to remain positive. I thank him for that lesson all of the time.
