Surprise Dad with an Unexpected Day Together

Posted: 6/19/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (BPT) - This Father’s Day, rather than sitting dear ol’ Dad down and watching him unwrap a new necktie, try showing your appreciation in an unexpected way. Surprise him by spending a fun-filled day together enjoying his favorite activities. After all, doesn’t the man who spent hours patiently teaching you to ride a bike deserve something special this year?

When planning out the perfect Father’s Day, think carefully about his interests and hobbies. Find a carefree activity that will help you both unwind and catch up. Few bonding moments create lasting memories like a beautiful day of fishing. Consider spending a few hours catching fish and swapping stories to delight Dad with the perfect combination of action and relaxation. Mix in thoughtful gifts throughout the day and wow Dad with a mouthwatering meal as your grand finale and it will be one he won’t soon forget.

In a matter of minutes, everything changes. In a matter of hours, we lose, then regain our focus. In a matter of days, we recover. In a matter of years, we forget. In solitude, we best remember those precious minutes.

So much happens for us in the time between Memorial Day weekend and the waves of a long hot summer. Graduations that culminate years of learning and parenting children through schools, May and June weddings, Father’s Day, and of course, our nation’s birthday. Blink and you will miss it all. Luckily, this year I didn’t blink.
