Wisconsin Public Service is celebrating dads this Father’s Day. The company asked employees to submit pictures and provide a few thoughts about why they love being a dad.

Here are their words:

“I love being a dad to my two children. I enjoy being there for them when they need me and raising them to be caring and productive members in their community. However, my favorite duty is making them laugh.” — Eric Nicolaus, tax manager

“My kids are always excited to see me when I walk through the door every day, as I am also excited to see them. I love when I’m able to teach them a skill and can see them get excited to learn something new. I love all of the laughs we share each day. There is never a dull moment with my boys.” — Jake Knospe, designer

“Being a father to my two kids was my most rewarding experience, and now that they are independent adults, spending time with them is still my favorite thing to do.” — Ted Prosser, manager — gas engineering

“Being a father is one of the greatest joys of my life. Our family is very close and always busy!” — Jeff Schaal, designer
