A Very Foothill Fathers Day

We asked readers to pay tribute to the dads in their lives, and in the days since, have received a treasure trove of photographs in return.

The pictures poured in online, and we saw dads wading, swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, playing and sleeping.

One after another came young dads, old dads, some with tattoos, many with beards, and a couple of dedicated dads sporting matching shirts with their kids.

These fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and father-figures were described as strong, amazing, adored, awesome, wonderful, fun-loving, adventurous, hard-working, supportive, understanding and just plain great.

Images arrived of dads dressing their kids, walking daughters down the aisle, and going to baseball games. Some make you want to whistle. We heard from proud moms, wives, daughters, sisters, aunts, mother-in-laws, nieces and friends. We laughed at the fun dads and we cried for the dads who are not here this Father’s Day, and the ones who are watching from above.

In short, we were honored to receive your photos of your dads doing regular dad things — and that may be the most special memory of all.
