Like Father,Like Son

Yes, it is that time of year, time to remember Dad!  Father's Day is this Sunday, always the third Sunday in June since 1910.  What do you have planned for your Father, or your husband? 
 I love preparing a fun day here for the Father of my children.  We always make him some "cool" cards and do something nice for him!  Take time to prepare a fun Father's day, because, if you have a son or daughter, you will want them to learn the importance of the tradition of honoring Dad!  Someday they may be a Father or be a really great Uncle.  
Like Father, Like Son or Like Daughter.
We all learn by example!

Mr.OM's daughter and I are planning to make sure he has a relaxing day Sunday. He'll be getting a great meal prepared by us, time with his feet up, and a nice gift we chose together.

I love your drawing. I always do!

I love the idea of forming traditions around Holidays for my son. That said, I haven't planned a darn thing - must get to it!

hubby loves to golf... boys and hubby off to a golf tournament for fathers and kids (even adult kids)... and then I meet them for a BBQ that follows the tournament... NICE DAY!

Amen. Experiences are always memorable and more enjoyable, even if giving (a gift) is more fun than receiving.

You've shown some really fantastic work the last few posts. What a treat, thanks.

I am going to my parents' house to make steak au poivre for everyone (my dad's favorite, great recipe from Cook's Magazine) and then lounge in their pool all day!

That is the cutest illustration. I see my son with my husband and he just loves Daddy. It's wonderful.

Planning on a digital frame for MY gadget-happy dad, who has just been a super help this year to us.

Have a great Sunday with the family!

That is so true, daddy's really deserve a special day. Such a good reminder to take time to honor them, both for them and for the children to learn the importance of honoring their parents!

Thank you, great post!
