My hubby isn’t a big one on making decisions. Typically I have to force him to make one, but after pushing (not forcing) the question, “What would you like to do for Father’s Day?” on him this year he was able to come up with a decision — out to eat for breakfast and swimming.
Those seemed like simple and fun requests. The morning started out a little bit more like Mother’s Day though as Michael woke up before Miles and got up with him in the morning letting me sleep in (score!) We got ready for breakfast and Miles was relatively fuss free for the entire affair.
Michael deemed breakfast a success and we ran a few errands so he could get a cord he needed to fix a wireless issue we were having. While the boys were taking their Father’s Day nap it started to POUR down rain making our second attempt at going swimming a giant fail.
When the two woke up we ate lunch and instead headed to a local putt-putt place, Michael’s back up plan. It was a lot of fun. Miles enjoyed chasing our golf balls (making it less of a game of skill and more of a game of speed trying to get the ball in before Miles could grab it). We giggled, hopped up and down some steps, watched some waterfalls, chased and admired several ducks and even hit a golf ball or two. We even went inside and played a few arcade games (I killed the Jurassic Park pinball game!)
We decided to throw caution to the wind and indulged in frozen yogurt before dinner. It was a big day.
No presents were exchanged (Michael and I aren’t real big on presents for each other) but I’m hopeful he felt appreciated and loved by both me and Miles. We try to do that every day, but especially on Father’s Day.
What did you do to show your dad or your children’s dad you appreciate them on Father’s Day?
