Thanks for the giveaway! I am going to by my dad a beach hat because he loves the beach, but won't wear sunscreen. :/

Gladys Parker said...

Unfortunately my father has terminal cancer, with God willing he has 6 months although he seems worse everyday. My plans are a small indoor picnic for him with food grilled outside. He has always loved his picnics but if he is not up to that I will just sit beside him and tell him what a wonderful father and man he is and that he can go be with mom whenever he chooses. Sorry, wordy.

We were going to go hiking at the Salamonie, my dad loves going! Unfortunately, we have a wedding we can't miss that day (the day before Father's Day) so I think I'm going to see if my husband wants to take my mom and dad out to eat Sunday instead.

My dad passed away in 2008 and I couldnt meet him since I was out of the country. If he would be alive he would like getting sun glasses and anti aging lotions and hair color. He was very fond of all these and would always keep himself well groomed.

We almost always go fishing as a family for Father's Day, the plans are the same this year. It should be a lot of fun, the weather is supposed to be good! We don't really do presents for Father's Day as we would rather have time together instead of stuff.

My Dad is deceased, we will be taking my husband out to his favorite restaurant.

Lynne said...

I'm sorry your dad is no longer here. I lost my mom almost 14 years ago, so I have similar feelings on Mothers Day.

Rhonda Scott said...

About 15 of my family members will be going to Stars to play pool and eat and hang out. There will be 4 generations.

After making breakfast for my husband, we'll go visit my dad for Father's Day.
Thank you!

Lynda Del Castillo said...

My Dad's really easy to please. I think we would take over barbecueing duties that Day. He would love that!

Elle said...

My dad is still with us but very hard to buy for. If we do anything it will probably be to take him out to dinner. He does like that, so at least we will know he is happy about it.

Pam Collins said...

Unforunately my Dad passed away many years ago, but I do plan to make my husband an extra special breakfast. Since we don't typically eat breakfast before going to church, just the fact that we have breakfast will be special.

AnnaZed said...

We make cake for hubby (a Dad) and his Dad too. Until 3 years ago we had GrandDad as well (we were so blessed).

Diane Elizabeth said...

My dad passed away 13 years ago. I used to take my mom to the cemetery on Father's Day,she liked to go, but doesn't drive anymore. This is the first Father's Day since she moved into the nursing home, she won't know it's Father's Day, so I will probably try to ignore the whole thing.

We are hosting our annual family father's day swimming pool/seafood party for all the fathers in our families. I am getting my father fishing gears.

Leela said...

We're stilling trying to come up with something fun to do.

Marnie Ward said...

My Dad in no longer with us in body but I can always feel his spirit and love of life. On Father's Day I always try to be in Virginia to visit my father who is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He has been gone over 13 years but I see him every day and think about what a great Dad he was to me and my 4 siblings. My Mother, brothers, sister and I go to church, visit his grave and then celebrate his life during a lunch were we all tell our favorite stories about him. Although he was in three wars he had a great sense of humor so the stories about him and the fun we shared never end. He was a great father, no doubt, but he was also a great soldier who was the example of Duty, Honor and Country.

dawn keenan (newnameford) said...

WE love to have cookouts on Fathers day with all of the kids and grandkids too.

Christy Maurer said...

I will probably just go visit my dad. I gave both my parents a nice gift on Mother's Day..they had to share lol.

Wendy Hutton said...

my Dad passed away about 8 yrs ago so no celebration here

Kathy Davis said...

My father is no longer living either, but we celebrate my husband being the father of our kids. WE will have a bar-b-que with the family, and remember those who have passed on. If I win I will give the card to my husband. He is always buying gadgets off of the internet.

Nora Driskel said...

I'll just make a few calls and send some cupcakes over to my parents.

Stacy said...
