Father’s Day is just around the corner (but you knew that, right?), so we’re celebrating our favourite #DadMoments and we want you to get involved too. Dads can be hilarious at the best of times, but there’s nothing better than watching our dads set their usual routine aside and really let their hair down on holiday. And these are the moments we want to see…
I’m talking dad-dancing at the hotel disco, socks and sandals on the beach and causing waves at the waterparks. But not just the wild stuff; we want to see all the wonderful, memorable moments too. I’m sure there are plenty you can share when it comes to your best #DadMoments.

In need of some inspiration?
You can see some great examples of #DadMoments on our dedicated feed, to help get some inspiration when it comes to choosing the perfect photo of your dad. But maybe you’re the dad and you want to share your favourite holiday photo spent with your kids? Well, that’s just fine too. Here are three dad bloggers who have shared their very own special #DadMoments:
1) Dave (Instagram @the_dadventurer)
Dave is a thirty-something dad who blogs and vlogs about his adventures as a stay-at-home dad to his 2.5 year old daughter. Under the alias The DADventurer, he shares his experiences, thoughts and random musings about parenthood in an honest and light-hearted way.

2) Simon (Instagram @manvspink)
In a previous life, Simon was a TV producer but has been a stay-at-home dad to his daughter since she was 6 months old. He occasionally still works in TV, is a freelance writer, and blogs about being the dad of a daughter at ManVsPink. You can read about his #DadMoments at http://manvspink.com/.
3) Tom (Instagram @diaryofthedad)
Established in 2010, Diary of the Dad is a multi-award-winning blog about Tom’s adventures as a parent of three children. It started life as a means of keeping a record of family life and has grown into his full-time job. You can read about his #DadMoments at http://www.diaryofthedad.co.uk/.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be right for me to talk about #DadMoments without sharing my own! So here’s me and my dad, rocking high socks and a thick cardigan on holiday:
Where would you go if you won?
The winner of our #DadMoments competition will get a £1,000 Thomas Cook Gift Card to put towards the cost of their next holiday. It seems only fair to book a family holiday, don’t you think? But where would you choose to go?
If I was to pick a great place to go on a family holiday, it would either be to Greece, for how accessible all the shops, restaurants and attractions are from the hotels; or to the Red Sea, for the fantastic weather, incredible diving and all the fascinating history that you can delve into.
But then again, it’s not just about the destination, but the hotel you choose to stay in too. Our SunConnect Resorts are the home of our mascots, Lollo & Bernie, and are all about bringing the whole family together, providing non-stop entertainment for all. And our Sunwing Family Resorts pride themselves on providing you with all the facilities and amenities you could possibly need for a fun-filled holiday in the sun.
So what are you waiting for? Get sharing your favourite #DadMoments and be in with a chance of winning the £1,000 Thomas Cook Gift Cards. Oh, and in case you don’t win, don’t forget your dad’s present for Sunday!
