Ready Your Ride for Summer Rock... #HankookUSA

Written by

The Summer Driving Season is officially upon us, and as families start to get out on the open road, the folks at Hankook Tires asked me to talk a little bit about how to Ready Your Ride for Summer Rock. With the new "Rock Father Rides" section just-launched, now is a great time to start the discussion. 

Memorial Day Weekend: For many, it's the official start of the Summer Season. It's a big travel weekend, and as some families pile into the car for their first major road trip of the year, the soundtrack for adventure can be called into question. For those looking for some fresh, family-friendly jams, The Rock Father has you covered with a jumping off point to explore some of the finest music that the Kindie world has to offer. 13 Top Kindie Artists have contributed to this limited-time FREE DOWNLOAD - a Summer Music Playlist to help you rock the ride. It's available until June 1 (after which it will become "streaming-only"), so grab these tracks now before you head out on the highway...

Ty's Toy Box

It's Memorial Day Weekend, and for most, that means that Summer is officially getting started! The folks over at Ty's Toy Box hit The Rock Father with a list of the Top Five popular summer products, and details on a limited-time offer of 20% Off for the Holiday Weekend. Check 'em out below...

Nearly 14 months have passed since I last mentioned him on The Rock Father, but as of today... our little friend from Tatooine has returned to the Garden here at Rock Father HQ.  The Ceremonial Placement of the Garden JAWA has once again taken place, kicking off the "official" official start of the 2013 Gardening Season for us,  later than last year (which had record heat) as we're still going hot/cold here in Northern Illinois. Our little scavenger is ready to rock and roll, with his garden tools tucked firmly into his bandolier strap, and his hose ready to soak the earth. Even better? Not once has he tried to sell me a stolen droid. "Utini!"

My coffee addiction is pretty well-documented at this point, and as the work-at-home father of two, I use the caffeinated goodness as fuel. We received a Keurig for Christmas last year (thanks, Auntie Jill!) and that's put the convenience of hot coffee front-and-center here at Rock Father HQ, and it's definitely increased my consumption. While I like my coffee black (like my metal! \m/ \m/) most of the time, on occasion I like a "coffee drink" (anytime the blackness is altered) with some flavor, and knowing this, the folks at International Delight asked me to share my ID with all of you. I dig International Delight (which I've mentioned before), so sharing my ID just seems right. My ID is Cinnabon.

I'm going to be 100% honest here... but Mother's Day is three days away, and I'm still not sure what we're going to do for my wife here at Rock Father HQ. It's been an exceptionally busy week (we're always busy, but this one had some extra challenges), and as many of you know - my wife works long hours at her office while I take care of the kids. She works hard... doing a job that I could never do, and I always feel that she's not appreciated enough. One idea floating is the possibility of a special breakfast, and with that I've been looking at some recipes.
