This #RockFathersDay #DadHacks adventure is brought to you by Chuck E. Cheese's. The Rock Father has been friends with Charles for a very, very long time...

Father's Day, or Rock Father's Day™ as it's known around here, is June 19th, and as everyone gears up for the annual round of "What Dad Really Wants...," I can tell you that what I want is very simple: time with my family, and fun. While my perfect Father's Day is a pretty low-key affair in which I like to hang out at home and spend some time in the yard, I'm all for a little detour to one of the kids' favorite places, which just so happens to be one of my favorite places... a place "Where A Kid Can Be A Kid," or where a big kid can still be a kid because he's never really grown up, but he happens to have kids of his own now. It's in that spirit of family fun that my friends at Chuck E. Cheese's are celebrating dads this year, serving-up some exclusive Father's Day offers that everyone can enjoy. Ticket Blaster for Dad? A chance to win a trip to Great Wolf Lodge? Read on, friends...

Fun at Chuck E. Cheese's

This Father's Day, treat the whole family to a 1-Topping Large Pizza, 4 Soft Drinks, 30 Tokens and FREE Small Wings for just $29.99 (Expiration Date: 6/21/16). We go for the Thin & Crispy Pizza, the plain cheese of which is a favorite of The Rock Daughters™. Personally, I like the pepperoni, but I'm the odd man out when it comes to my meat enjoyment around here, so cheese pizza is in abundance.

So who's the biggest kid in the family? Of course it's me, and my wife will attest to that. At Chuck E. Cheese's, fellow "Rock Fathers" can prove their skill by having their own gaming tournament versus the little ones. Ask your store for a scorecard and get the action moving. I scored 27,000 on this round of Skee-Ball:

For the ultimate, Dads can put their name in for a chance to enter the famed Ticket Blaster on Father's Day, with random drawings held throughout the day for a rare chance at ticket-catching glory. Can you match my skill?

Bonus Round: A little Toyography! It's no secret that I love taking pictures of toys, and a major subject for me is often diecast vehicles. At Chuck E. Cheese's, the girls and I picked up the latest version of their Chuck E. Cheese's Big Rig (we have an older version at home), and I couldn't resist busting it out and snapping some pics in the parking lot. Is this proof that I really am the biggest kid? You decide!
