One of the job requirements for being a Dad is sharing all the things you love with your kids - no matter how outdated, embarrassing, or painfully uncool.
You know, like your favorite TV shows:
(Submitted by Angie Z. and made by CakeFX)
(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)
Or your favorite Jazz bands:
(By Cakes Du Soleil)
Maybe you insisted we learn an instrument:
(By Sugar Rush Cakes)
Or how to catch a ball:
(By Chattanooga Cakes)
You took us on our first road trips:
(By McGreevy Cakes)
And somehow we managed to get there without turning the car around.
Maybe you shared your prized comic book collection:
Or gave us your favorite childhood toy:
(By Avalon Cakes)
Maybe you took us to our first football game:
(By Cut The Cake)
... but understood when we were more interested in the marching band.
When we were older, maybe you kept singing silly songs like "On Top of Spaghetti," just to see us roll our eyes - before eventually joining in.

On top of spa-GHET-iiii!
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meeeeatball
When somebody sneezed!
Oh! And remember "Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts?"
[No cake here. You're WELCOME.]
And you know what, dads of the world? That stuff we didn't want to do, that stuff we moaned and groaned and rolled our eyes over? That's the stuff that makes us smile today, remembering how you loved us enough to share it with us.
Well, except maybe those Ella Fitzgerald albums blasting every Saturday morning. Sorry, Dad, but I do have my limits.
Now, LET'S GET GRILLING!

Happy Father's Day, everyone!
