Dad Day

by Andrea on May 30, 2012

Last year was Brian’s first Father’s Day.  I was having the hardest time coming up with a gift idea, and in the end decided to organize a day of activities in lieu of a gift.  I called it Dad Day 2011.

Right as he woke up, Mo and I gave him this:

The activities were selected if they fit two of the three criteria:

  1. Brian really enjoys doing this activity
  2. Our family would have fun doing it together
  3. It worked around a 10 month old Mo’s sleep and feeding schedule

In the end, our Dad Day was flexible given that it turned out to be a rainy day.  (Yes, I too was shocked.) So picnic at Gasworks park became a living room floor picnic, and mini golf became an extended drive.  But we spent the entire day together and little Mo sported a Dad is My Hero shirt.

Why mess with a good thing?  I’m currently planning Dad Day 2012 and making this into a tradition for our family.

What do you have planned for Father’s Day?
