15 Reasons Why Texas Dads Are the Best! Happy Father’s Day
This is a tribute to all the hard-working Texas Dads that every day: nurture, educate, support, and unconditionally love their families.
#15: TEXAS BBQ
Nobody does barbecue better than Texas Dads. From hamburgers to brisket, everything they throw on the grill tastes like heaven! They keep their families happy and united, all anxiously waiting for seconds.
#14: GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR
Texas dads know how to tell a joke. They’re great at lovingly embarrassing their wives and kids. Their silliness is full of wisdom, meant to always show the sunny side of life. They cheer us up and put a smile on our faces every day!
#13: THEY CAN DANCE
Whether they’re great dancers or not, Texas Dads don’t shy away from the dance floor. Even if they’re not in the mood, “Sometimes ya just got to put on your boots and dance, anyway…” Every daddy’s girl has great memories of dancing around the house with her favorite dance partner!
#12: THEY’RE STRAIGHT SHOOTERS
Texas men are assertive. They say what they mean and mean what they say. Never expect Texas Dads to sugar coat things. They believe in “toughening you up” to survive in life. A good Texas father will make sure their message is driven home, the first time around, to avoid future mishaps.
#11: THEY’RE HANDY
Texas dads always seem to have power tools close by and like good Southern men, they know their way around a warehouse. They can fix a leaky faucet, install a light fixture or even build a shed. Best of all, to their kids’ delight, they’re architects of the most awesome tree houses.
#10: THEY MORE THAN LOVE SPORTS
Sports are a big part of every Texas dad’s life, if they’re not playing, they are watching. We’ve learned how to throw and catch a ball, how to swing a bat, and how to ride a bike from our dads. They even influenced us on which will be our favorite team to cheer for. Most importantly, they are the biggest fans of their own kids.
#9: THEY ARE WISE
Texas dads are full of wisdom because they have seen and done a thing or two in their lifetime. Everyone has a different way of imparting knowledge and Texan fathers have a special knack for it. If we were hanging with the wrong crowd, we’d hear, “If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” We know not be gullible since, “Just because a chicken has wings, don’t mean it can fly.” They have a witty saying for just about everything and each has been passed down to him over generations of Texas fathers.
#8: THEY LOVE THE OUTDOORS
Avid outdoorsy men, Texas Dads love to go camping and hiking. Organizing weekend expeditions is one of their best skills, they take us tubing down a slow-moving Texas river, or on a fishing trip out on the lake. Some of our best childhood memories were created out on the countryside with dad.
All Texans, men and women know the value of an honest day’s work. Texas dads were brought up on traditional morals and values. They are committed in every aspect of their lives and this shows in their work ethic. They teach their children by example to take pride in a job well done!
