Mike is an awesome dad. He takes the kids on wonderful adventures, takes all four shopping at Costco (by himself!), and uses our coin collection to teach them about the world. He leaves them notes when he is out of town and has told countless Star Wars themed bedtime stories.
Mike also loves technology. He takes things apart with the kids, and takes us on early-morning field trips to watch students fly unmanned model planes on Stanford University campus.
For Father’s Day we are going with our traditional homemade gifts, as well. Emma got the idea of making him coupons after her second grade teacher told her class about how her daughter had done something similar. She brainstormed with Johnny and Lily to come up with this list – it took them a few days to come up with all of these ideas:
Ideas for tickets in envelope for Father’s Day Present
- Day off with your friends
- Invite a friend over
- Have dinner with a friend
- Bring a kid to work
- Ice cream party with kids
- Have the house clean
- Paint Mom’s nails (NICELY!)
- Have dinner at a restaurant
- Get your own ice cream sundae made by the KIDS!
- Get a LEGO set (made by the kids)
- Take kids to NASA
- Go on a date with mom or a kid
These ideas were then carefully written on pieces of nice colored paper and put in an envelope to give Mike on Father’s Day. I love the combination of things that they know Mike will love, things that they love, and things that they want Mike to do with them.
How are you celebrating Father’s Day this year?
