This month, we celebrate Dads. They are strong, fearless, and often times, let’s face it, the “fun one.” In honor of Father’s Day, we had the Dads we admire try on our custom made Katie Kime ties* and talk about what they love most about fatherhood. Our Dads share what their dream Father’s Day plans entail, and of course, their Dad style.
The founder of Austin-based Build-A-Sign and new creative co-working space, Refinery, Dan Graham, is a fun dad to three girls who are between the ages of two and six. He sports the Katie Kime “The World Is Your Oyster” necktie.
What are some of your favorite things to do with your girls?
Swim, hike, build with Legos and go on bike rides.
What has been the most surprising thing about having daughters?
How genuinely kind they are to others!
What has been the most rewarding part of fatherhood?
Watching my girls experience things for the first time that I take for granted. I get to experience things all over again through their eyes.
Do you have a favorite quote about fatherhood?
It doesn’t matter what you do with your kids, only that you do it with them.
What are you hoping your Father’s Day plans entail?
A great family brunch, followed by a nap, watching a movie, and an afternoon of swimming in the pool—all with my girls!
*We designed this capsule collection for some of our favorite Austin Dads.
