Father's Day — The Bump
Pre-School

Father's Day

DH's bday is the weekend after father's Day and he swears that he REALLY just wants to chill and putter around the house, hanging with us for both. 

I want to honor that but am wracking my brain to think of ways to make hanging out a little more fun/special.  Any ideas? 

As for gifts, even that is hard because he likes building stuff, but will up and buy any tool or materials he needs.  I'm feeling HUGE pressure because for mother's day he built me a raised garden bed and poured concrete pavers and had the kids put hand and footprints on every one (he even got the dog's prints in one!).  And even put in a rain barrel in.  How does a spoiled brat match that? I don't need to one-up him, but could use some ideas to make hanging out more special...

Help, please?

    Does your DH enjoy grilling? My DH requested the Mangrate this year for Father's Day. It's rare that he says he wants something so I ordered it the very next day! I also got him some different wood chips (Cedar, Mesquite, Hickory) to add to the grill.

  • Maybe you can order in his favorite food for lunch or go to his favorite restaurant and get it to go. Rent a movie he has been hoping see. Have the house cleaned and ready for a relaxing weekend.

    What a great idea!  He uses gas, though.  Must go back and see if he can use this!

    And the benefit of having a laid back hubby- 363 days a year it's easy.  The trouble with having such a laid back hubby, those two days a year he doesn't care.  Although I don't do fish or seafood and he loves seafood... that may work.
