The “Cool” Dad

Bio: You can usually find this dad rocking a spirited Tommy Bahama shirt dabbing with the best of them and he would never, and we mean NEVER, turn down a rap battle. He keeps the other parents young by making sure they are up to date on all the new lingo the kids are using these days. “LOL” means “lots of love,” right? He knows all the words to your favorite songs and has a large repertoire dad jokes. Even though you sometimes get embarrassed by his outrageous behavior, he can ALWAYS put a smile on your face and you wouldn’t trade him for the world.

The Fix-it Dad

Bio: Is your dad constantly starting new projects around the house and has a never ? If your dad is no nonsense and lives for the satisfaction of a job well done, you may have a “Fix-It” Dad on your hands. He knows that anything is fixable with a little bit of duct tape and, on the weekends, he can usually be found in the garage with his nose in another project. While his need to fix everything can be a bit overwhelming, there truly is no problem your “Fix-It” Dad can’t solve. A flat tire? Done. A clogged drain? Done. A broken heart? No problem.

While you are growing sick of his story about the mountain lion in the woods, you know you wouldn’t have been able to survive this long without him and he has armed you with life skills and tons of camping, hiking and biking memories you’ll never forget.

The Master Chef Dad

On the weekends, he will have you and your siblings working together in the kitchen learning all of his tips and tricks to a great meal and preparing food for the next week. He is a hard worker and knows that there isn’t anything that a good home cooked meal can’t fix. Always exhibiting patience and a willingness to let you crack the eggs, no matter how many shells get in the batter, your dad is one of kind and always lets you know you can come back home again.
