  1. When I was 13, we went to Myrtle Beach for a weekend, just he and I. While walking down the strip, we stopped and looked up at a bungee tower and wound up staring up at this tower for what seemed like hours. I’d saved some money for the trip, but I didn’t have enough to do it. He looked down at me at said “I’ll pay half.”

    I. Lost. My. Shit.

    We paid, I went up the tower and jumped off. They gave me a certificate and everything.

    I got home and I ran in the door waving my certificate screaming all excited, my mom took the certificate out of my hand, read it, and proceeded to lose her fucking mind.

    It was a moment we always brought up afterward. Mom would STILL get pissed 25-30 years later.

  2. On my birthday last year, I skipped school with my dad to go fishing during redfish season. We caught 30 reds in ~4 hours, until we were tired.

  3. My dad and I every Friday? I think it was Friday if I remember correctly but idk. I would stay up until 12 and me and him would get a bag of popcorn and binge watch Rick and morty together and just laugh. It helped me escape from all of my problems.

  4. My dad and I did everything together when I was younger! But I particularly remember him teaching me to dance while he sang and played air drums. I will never forget my Daddy. I miss him every single day.

  5. Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence. My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then spin me around ‘till I fell asleep. Then up the stairs he would carry me. And I knew for sure I was loved.

    If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him, I’d play a song that would never ever end. How I’d love, love, love to dance with my father again

  6. When I was younger it was getting coffee in that old blue pickup before school on several mornings. Didn’t happen all the time, which made these occasions all the better.

  7. My dad and I never hung out much, but there was nothing wrong with our relationship, I was just a big mama’s girl instead.

    One weekend she went out of town to visit her sisters, so it was just me and dad, and he brought me to this air force show thing that was in town. I really didn’t wanna go, but I went anyway cause he seemed excited to take me, and honestly it was a lot of fun. It was the first time my dad and I really bonded.

  8. Not to put a sour taste in people’s mouths but I can think of specific instances where my mom really did some heinous stuff but my dad not so much. Yeah we have general disagreements on politics or whatever but my dad and I have always seen eye to eye. Honestly times with my dad are in general pretty darn good but ones where we laugh really hard at something are the best ones. Laughing with Dad is something that can’t be replicated.

  9. I was thirteen we went on the boat with a couple of his friends. One of the engines blew a fuse. I was the only sober one on the boat, so I drove home with two engines working. I didn’t even have a boater’s liscense.

  10. Taking me to see Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls in the movie theater and getting up to walk out a couple times because he was laughing so hard. I could still hear him laughing outside of the theater.

  11. Out in the middle of the mountains at night where there were a ton of stars. We just rode on a 4-wheeler looking at constellations and coming up with some of our own.

  12. It’s more of a funny moment, kind of uncomfortable.

    I specifically remember I was helping my dad make burgers, ( and we buy ground beef and make the Patty’s) and my dad goes
    “Do you know about beating meat?”
    I go “what?”
    “Do you know about beating meat?”
    “No…”
    The he laughed and I was uncomfortable the rest of the time we made burgers.
