This Father's Day the kids and I are making Daddy breakfast in bed. The kids are making him a crown so he can be king for the day.

Last year we went to an indoor glow in the dark mini golf so my husband could golf (sort of) and my 3 year old son could too :)

This father's day my husband is doing a Nascar driving experience. He is very excited!

My sister and I always make our father, who is a big kid at heart, a chocolate chip pancake breakfast and do one his favorite fun things for the day! we always try to spend the whole day together and reflect on all the fun times we've had!!

This year will be my husband's first Father's Day. I still have yet to come up with something good for him to remember his first Father's Day. With my father we normally just go out to eat at his choosing (usually Red Lobster YUM!)

We're doing "Hop On Pop" for Fathers Day. We filled 75 balloons with little notes, drawings, reasons we love Daddy, etc. We will blow them up and then have a game of having Daddy & kids pop balloons to read the notes stuffed inside.

I would love for my husband to win this get away. He is a wonderful father. 2 years ago we got married and blended our 2 families. So he became a step father to my son who's father passed away 5 yrs ago. Then 2 months after we were married my step children's mother passed away so we are now raising all of our children together and it has had alot of struggles and trials but my husband has been amazing. He deserves a break

My favorite place to go is the gorgeous Hocking Hills State Park area known as Old Man's Cave! My dad, father of 12, always took us camping every summer there and I'm hard pressed to think of a more lovely outdoor spot in all of OH! We'll be picinicing at Norwalk Memorial Park with him, thank goodness, as his greatest joy is playing patriarch over the dozens of offsprings and grandchildren he's sired! Love you dad!

Something that includes my Dad, my husband, and my son in law to be:) Canoeing would be fun! We did a lot of that as a kid w my Dad!! Xxoo

For fathers day I usually let my husband pick what he wants to do. One fathers day the kids and I took him out to eat then we went on a hike. It was fun trying to stay up with the kids which made it a memorable day.

Thw best part of Father's day is the family time! Quality time spent together not having to rush here or there. Just being able to enjoy e.ch other.
Posted By BbGrl30 | 06/07/2012 4:48 PM
The best part about Father's Day is spending time together as a family and honoring an amazing man, my kids father. We will probably spend the day at the beach then go out to a nice dinner.
Posted By OCPacific10 | 06/07/2012 7:09 PM
Favorite father's day activity from the past was to stop at ISALY's Dairy after church and get a rainbow ice cream cone.
Posted By emawoman | 06/07/2012 7:33 PM
We have always done a project around the house for my father. It would be nice to travel and have some fun this year.

This year we are planning on going to Kings Island and spend the day!

My 4 daughters plan on taking their daddy out to eat for breakfast and packing a picnic lunch for after a hike. Then out to the lake for some fishing & Kayaking. After a long day of fun, building a bonfire in the back yard toasting up marshmallows & wieners. That is the plan for a perfect Father's Day this year, just appropriate for the best dad ever!
Posted By Momof4girls | 06/08/2012 5:48 AM
My nine-year-old son has been doing extra chores to earn money to buy a special gift for his father for Father's Day. (I suspect it will be a video game they can play together.) I'm making my husband a super-soft, super-warm blanket with paw prints on it to show him that he's the "Top Dog"!

My favorite father's day activity is grilling with my dad,it's how i learned how to grill better than my husband!
Posted By christina898 | 06/08/2012 6:33 AM
My son was born on Father's day so his birthday is always around the holiday. We love to have a Father's day/Birthday celebration with a big cookout. Some years we have made it to our favorite Summer destination-Kings Island, but that sometimes has to wait until later in the Summer. Dad (& the kids) always enjoy spending Father's day together no matter what it is we do.
Posted By Yakamo3x3 | 06/08/2012 8:44 AM
My hubby loves to spend Fathers Day morning golfing with the guys and then coming home to a fun family bbq. He has been having back issues and cannot golf this year so this little trip would be perfect for us.
Posted By jandk2299 | 06/08/2012 9:47 AM
We got to church as a family then usually a cook-out at some time during the day. Its a day of relaxing at our house, playing with our 2 year old son. Would love to win this as he loves trains!
Posted By crystal45614 | 06/08/2012 11:20 AM
Last year, my husband had to be out of town for father's day, so my then 5-year-old daughter decided to throw him a welcome home/father's day party. She made decorations out of construction paper and hung them around the dining room, and I made a peach/blackberry cake that I knew he'd love. When he arrived home, we surprised him with a late father's day. :-)

Last year for Fathers Day we took my husband and my Dad to Kings Island. It was an awesome day. Everyone had so much fun!
Posted By Michelle84 | 06/08/2012 12:27 PM
Last year Dad was not working, so we spent the day at home playing games at the house. We are looking forward to going somewhere this time for his special day. Hope We win!
Posted By dwidger | 06/08/2012 1:11 PM

I'll be spending it with my dad & family at my brothers house. Wouldn't have it any other way.

This Fathers Day the kids have made some cute books all about Dad and we are headed to a family reunion.

We are doing canoeing this fathers day because it is also our daughter's birthday this year. We usually spend the morning fishing and the afternoon working in the yard.
Posted By Mel | 06/08/2012 3:04 PM
We will be serving dad breakfast in bed then heading down mad river on a canoe trip and some fishing and fun

My best father's day memory was the year I entered a contest in the Chicago Tribune. I drew a picture of my dad and wrote why he was the best dad in the world. Even though I didn't win the prize, they printed my entry along with a select few in the paper. I was so proud when I gave it to my dad for father's day. Now looking back at that now as a parent, I can see how special my dad probably felt.
Posted By smiley1683 | 06/08/2012 8:30 PM
This will be a very special Father's Day. Our son who was born with Spina Bifida was chosen as the Children's Miracle Network Champion for the State of Ohio 2012! My husband has been the best dad to a son with many challenges! We have been invited to Michigan International Speedway to see our first NASCAR race on Father's Day! My husband and son are big NASCAR fans and they hope to meet their favorite driver!

We are planning on letting Daddy sleep in, then take him out for brunch and spend the rest of the day at Kings Island riding rides
Posted By colemaka | 06/10/2012 7:34 AM
We like to go out on my dad's motor boat. We take a picnic, go tubing, and get out to swim in the lake.
Posted By jencarangi | 06/10/2012 10:27 AM
We will be celebrating Father's Day this year with our high school graduate and extended family visiting. Our son is joining the Air Force and could be stationed elsewhere next Father's Day. My husband has dedicated himself to being involved with our two sons(our other son just turned 13). He works long hours as a UPS driver but still found time to coach our graduates hockey teams from age 5-high school and was thouroughly involved in his boy scouts and he acheived being an Eagle Scout. This trip would be an incredible experience to share.
Posted By Carolyn10 | 06/10/2012 5:36 PM
This year because money is tight I thought me and my son would take dad out on our friends boat for the day and let him put a line or two in the water with his son. I love to see my husbend and his son do the thing they love most together, nothing could make me more happy. :)
Posted By Csuth10 | 06/11/2012 12:51 AM
Spending the day with dad and siblings, including grand & great grand children. Challenge Dad to a game of corn hole or letting him choose to fish or just relax, followed by a dinner where everyone makes a dish of all our favorites.
Posted By sleesmith | 06/11/2012 11:06 AM
We celebrate Father's Day all week by letting dad make requests and honoring them. he reallly likes having a whole week of favors from me and the kids.
Posted By Sunnymay | 06/11/2012 11:56 AM
The kids and i make breakfast for dad and let him enjoy one of his favorite things for a fewlong hours- play video games. Then we all enjoy a cookout and movie together.
Posted By Sondragarcia | 06/12/2012 12:43 PM
I printed out a fill in the blank "about my dad" and let our son, who's almost 5, fill it out. He also drew a picture of him and his daddy. We're going to also buy some jelly beans and fill a jar and I will have my son tell me all the things he loves about his Daddy and we will count jelly beans with every thing he says about his Daddy :) This is his last Father's Day as a father of one...we're expecting another boy in September! I think our Daddy deserves a little spoiling and I appreciate the chance for this :)

My family usually gets together and we have Larosa's pizza.

I will wash my Dads car then we will go fishing and I am going to clean and grill what we catch, Take some corn on the cob and some homemade Pasta salad with Beer! Dads favorite day :D
Posted By Hollyjackson1975 | 06/14/2012 5:11 PM
I usually make a nice breakfast, or we'll throw some good steaks on the grill to celebrate Father's Day. Also, we'll make an elaborate dessert. Either a pie or 3-layer cake. It's a day to celebrate Dad and all the foods he loves!
Posted By mom22kids1 | 06/14/2012 6:48 PM
Father's day is special for your dad. He is generally low maintenance but since he works very hard as a police officer, we usually barbecue on a grand scale and enjoy a favorite movie with him and the family surrounding him.
Posted By Therkesha1 | 06/15/2012 7:24 AM
The family gets together at my parents house for a cook out and Bocci Ball in the yard....well, our version of Bocci Ball, anyway. it's more free form than with actual rules, lol.
Posted By amymack74 | 06/15/2012 9:02 AM
I helped my little girls decorate a coffee mug for Daddy (he loves coffee) and in the morning we will make him chocolate chip or M&M pancakes (haven't decided which) -with homemade whipped cream.
That is...~after~ we let him sleep in for the morning. Which is what I am sure he really wants anyway.
Posted By panursedeann | 06/16/2012 12:27 PM
A tradition my Dad and I had growing up was every Father's Day we would get up early, go eat breakfast at a restaurant and then spend the day fishing.
It was the best times of my life.
Posted By 2talltodd | 06/16/2012 3:18 PM
My sister and I are taking our dad on a fishing trip this fathers day at our favorite lake, we are going to picnic at our usual spot and spend the day relaxing and hopefully catch a few fish for dinner.
Posted By snowqueen333 | 06/16/2012 4:20 PM
My husband is a stay at home Dad to our 2 year so this would be such a nice treat! I plan on spoiling him tomorrow...!
Posted By ReesieD | 06/16/2012 5:23 PM
Unfortunately, my husband has to work all day on Father's Day so we won't get to spend any time together. We plan to make him a nice dinner and a cookie cake and he can enjoy it when he gets home from working hard all day.
Posted By ajb1831 | 06/16/2012 5:27 PM
I don't know about MY favorite Father's Day memory, but my husband's was probably the year that I took the kids out of the house so he could relax and do nothing for hours:)
Posted By eversolefam | 06/16/2012 5:29 PM
I just finished making a Father's Day cake, and in the morning the kids will give their dad homemade gifts!
Posted By andimartin | 06/16/2012 5:49 PM
