Let's hear it for Dad!

Fathers are the first hero in a young child's life.

Dads are silly, fun, and strong enough to carry their children from place to place, literally and metaphorically.

Dads are mysterious, possessing great knowledge about things like how to build stuff, how to mend things and how to have great adventures.

Is it any wonder that kids see them as superheroes?

Father's Day is the day that we celebrate dads in every way we can.

Every special man involved in your child's life deserves to be celebrated.

And here are some of the best ways I have found to do just that!
