David is playing in a golf tournament this Friday and Saturday, which leaves Sunday for family time. We usually start the morning out with a lazy morning in bed, topped doff with blueberry pancakes – per daddy’s request. It’s supposed to rain Sunday, which is killing our cook-out vibe, so we will probably end up out to eat somewhere with Dave’s dad.
As for presents, David is THE HARDEST guy to shop for. He doesn’t really need anything. And anything he wants, he just goes and buys for himself. So I have to get creative. For his 30th birthday, I attached 30 things (small gifts or little notes) to 30 balloons, and scattered them throughout the living room while he was in the shower. SURPRISE! And for his 32nd, I had friends and family send me 32 memories of Dave, I stuffed them into envelopes and arranged them into a giant 32 on the wall.
Admittedly, I put a lot less effort into Father’s Day than his birthday. Last year, I got him a set of outdoor can holders, so he doesn’t have to risk spilling his beer while playing bags or washers. They were a huge hit, and we’ve since bought another set.
This year, Peyton (with a little help) made a cute little book about dad, she’s beyond excited to give it to him. (You can view the free printable here!)
And here are some other ideas:
Let’s cross our fingers that the rain misses us this weekend, so Dave can bust out his drillmaster skills, I have been dying to try this shrimp kabob recipe!
