This year to celebrate Father’s Day, my husband decided that a weekend of Tough Mudderin Whistler, B.C. would be the perfect opportunity for a father/son getaway with a couple other dads and sons. It is Father’s Day, so let’s hope he has fun (he’s very competitive) and can still walk when he returns!
This isn’t a typical year. Usually Father’s Day around our house consists of a new shirt and baseball hat, his favourite breakfast, lunch & dinner, and the day spent doing whatever he wants to do for the day. Typically that means golf, football or TV.
I encourage the kids to give him a nice card with a personal touch and to reserve some quality time with dad. Daddy date night is always a great gift option for our family! Whether it’s dinner, a movie, or wacking balls at the driving range, spending that quality time together is always so nice, and it beats a store-bought gift every time, hands down.
