Fun Father's Day Activities

With Father's Day a few weeks away, I wanted to share some of my ideas for fun things to do. My husband totally rocks at being a dad and I plan on going all out this Father's Day! He does so much for us and I can't wait to show him how much we appreciate him.

Play Golf, Football, Soccer, Or Any Game
J.D. would love hitting golf balls on the driving range, throwing around the football or running through the park playing soccer with the boys. Follow this up with a BBQ and a beer, and you got yourself a perfect day.

Go Hiking
A peaceful day hiking with no distractions and a picnic lunch sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day.
Have A Steak Dinner
My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so a steak dinner is definitely on the menu.
Go Fishing
Anybody surprised by this one?! When I asked J.D. what he would like to do for Father's Day, he couldn't say fishing fast enough. A peaceful day on the water sounds perfect to me!

Take Him To A Brewery Or Distillery
My husband loves to try new beer and whiskey. Spending an afternoon eating delicious food and trying new drinks would be right up his alley. An added bonus, is taking his favorite beer or whiskey home, to enjoy the rest of the week!  
Watch A Baseball Game
Watching baseball is one our favorite things to do in the summer. Sitting outside, eating a hotdog and drinking a beer (or two) sounds like a perfect way to spend Father's Day.  

Visit A Barber Shop For A Straight Razor Shave
J.D. had a straight razor shave, for his sisters wedding, and loved it. He still talks about it and has mentioned that he would like another one. Maybe I should take the hint and schedule him one. :)
Go Camping
We're not brave enough yet to take Kai camping, but maybe in a year or two we will make this our yearly tradition. J.D. and I went camping all the time before having kids and loved it so much. We're both so excited to make lots of memories while camping with the boys.
Go To A Amusement Park
Exciting rides, funnel cake and strong man games would be such a fun Father's Day. J.D. is a pro at taking the kids on their rides, and to be honest, I'm not sure who has more fun!

 Visit A Museum
My Dad and I took the boys to a museum for Mother's Day (J.D. was working out of town) and we had the best time. The museum we went to is 1.5 hours away, which made for a fun road trip. Drinking coffee, jamming to music, going out to eat and learning a thing or two was a such a great way to spend the day.
Visit A National Park
There are so many national parks we have never been to and always talk about going. Spending time together exploring would make a perfect weekend.   
See A Car Show
This wouldn't be my top pick, but guys love cars and this day is all about them!
Listen To Music In The Park
We did this last year and had so much fun. It was a wonderful evening relaxing, unplugging and spending quality time together.

How are you celebrating your Dad or husband this year? I would love to hear!



  1. father's day is one of those days to build memories with your growing child. Nice tips. :)

  2. We often head to the zoo but I think we're chilling out at home this year. We'll probably invite a few family members over for a barbecue.
