Father's Day is a great time to call your dad and thank him for everything he's done for you. Maybe your dad is like mine, and most of the time you spend with him just consists of ridiculous jokes that embarrass you in front of your friends. But those jokes just contribute to his awesomeness, and you know he would give you the world or protect the United States for you. There are two lucky ladies out there whose dad is actually tasked with running the country, and somehow he manages to do it while also being an amazing father. President Barack Obama is a great dad, and he's got the photos to prove it.

Obama has two daughters, Malia, 15, and Sasha, who’s 13, according to TODAY. He said his daughters know he “loves ‘em to death,” even if he “teeters on the edge of being embarrassing sometimes.”

He said he and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, don’t really have to be strict parents, because the girls “have their acts together.” He said his moments being a father are the memories he will savor:

“When you're on your death bed, that's the stuff you're going to remember: you holding hands with your daughter and taking them to the park and pushing them on a swing and hearing them laugh,” Obama told TODAY. “You just want to make sure you don't miss out on that.”

Here are 21 photos that show how Obama is making sure he never misses those crucial moments being the best dad that he can be.
