SALT LAKE CITY — It's tough being a dad and there's no doubt about it. Kids don't stop growing, never stop causing mischief, and generally present one of the greatest challenges a person will ever face. Sometimes, though, despite the difficulty, a father just seems to rise above and show how great a dad can be when they are at their best.

After a photo of a father dressed as a superhero walking with his son went viral after being posted to Reddit just a few days ago, we decided to scour the Internet for more photos and videos of fathers at their absolute best.

Below are a few examples of great dadness in action. Got more? Did we miss a big one? Click the email button at the bottom of the page and send us your story.
