Dads are fun-loving and carefree – the ones you go to when need a good laugh or a giant bear hug, or when you get in trouble with your mom. While there are so many great memories we have with our dads, this Father’s Day, we at the Clog would like to remember all of our first-time adventures we shared with our father.

Since Father’s Day is rapidly approaching on June 18, here are 18 things you probably did for the first time with your dad’s help:

  1. Learned to ski
  2. Listened to old people’s music (Tina Turner, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi)
  3. Listened to some young people’s music (Katy Perry, P!nk)
  4. Learned to ride a bike
  5. Learned to get up after falling off said bike
  6. Drove in reverse
  7. (Then) learned to drive forward
  8. Used a screwdriver
  9. Moved out of the house
  10. Flew a kite
  11. Pumped air into your soccer ball and basketball
  12. Went to your first concert
  13. Made fun of someone at a fancy gathering
  14. Tried not to laugh at that person every time you met them after the gathering
  15. Toured UC Berkeley when you were a senior in high school
  16. Went to your first professional basketball game
  17. Created a one-of-a-kind handshake with your dad
  18. Told your dad he’s the best dad in the whole wide world!

We love our dads! Happy Father’s Day!
