Father's Day Sharing!

This past Sunday was Father's Day, and though everyone has a different take on family and relationships, I want to know what you did!

 

Whether you celebrated your biological father, a stepfather, grandfather, brother, cousin, nephew, son, grandson, husband, friend, or any significant male in your life, how did you show some extra appreciation? I know not everyone may still have their father or celebrated male figure alive today (my friend lost her father to cancer a while back and this Father's Day her and her siblings released his ashes in memorial), but what are some of your favorite memories you shared?

 

My dad's never been a man for too many words unless he's with family and friends, then he turns into super loud ball of fun, but he's never been one to ask for anything or even expect grand and lavish gifts. He's often very hard to shop for on holidays and special occasions, but this year my mother and I got him some shirts that he can wear to work. Nothing fancy, just a couple of polos, he's a hard working man and more than often if he truly WANTED something, he would more than likely buy it for himself, so the shirts were a good practical gift and I know he'll get use out of them.

 

So tell me, Beauty Talkers! Did you Skype a conversation with dear ol' dad due to distance? Have a BBQ and gift your guy with a new pit? Did you treat him to a meal at his favorite restaurant? Was it cologne and grooming items that he got gifted with? Smiley Happy

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Aw, great post! Your dad seems alot like my dad in which he doesn't expect things and is more savvy with the little things that make a HUGE difference and that is just being there enjoying his family. 

 

My dad has been gone for the past 2 months enjoying his time with my mom at their little bungalow in the French West Indies. They're celebrating their 40th anniversary as well Smiley Very Happy

 

I e-mailed him a picture of homemade pickles I made using his recipe for Father's Day and we're planning an offshore fishing trip when they return! Can't wait to have my dad back, fishing ain't the same without the captain. 

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Holy cow! I bet he's having a blast! Congrats to your parents for their 40th!!!

 

Offshore fishing is so fun! Cooking up the catch is even better!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Thanks, it gives me hope in the future. Hehe

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I had a super mellow Father's Day with dear old dad. I just went over to my family's home for BBQ (my dad insisted in making dinner for us). I brought over my two little dogs, they always have a blast at my parents home; they know them as 'grandma and grandpa' and will get really hyped up whenever I say that.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Haha, I can imagine the dogs having their tails wag and then go nuts when you mention taking a trip!

 

Isn't it funny how it can be a day like Father's Day or Mother's Day and dad or mom still love to take care of those around them? Smiley Happy I think they find an ultimate reward in being able to continue to provide and show love and care and see you enjoying yourself as well as everyone else!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

My dog gave his Father (my husband) a nice card and we all went out and played in the yard. My dad passed long ago, so all I have is childhood memories of making him a dessert (I was a bad cook then, so I think it was more a trial than a gift, lol). 

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I'm sure he enjoyed it either way Smiley Happy that's a really sweet memory!

 

I bet you all were exhausted after playing in the yard, what a great way to take advantage of the day and the outdoors!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

My dad passed away 9 years ago but I did wish him a Happy Father's Day I blew a kiss up to heaven and told him happy father's day. Smiley Happy

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I'm sure he got that kiss along with any and all other well wishes you've ever sent him! Smiley Happy

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I didn't do much. We sat in and ordered take out foodSmiley Happy My dad was happy with his box of chocolates from See's! They had these cute limited edition sets exclusively for Father's daySmiley Happy

<3 Melissa

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Ohhhh gosh, See's is delish!!!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

We're doing it a week late!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Ooo, what are the plans then? 

Highlighted

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I sent my dad a fathers day card with a lot of writing! Since I don't live in the same state as him. He never wants anything so I didn't get him anything particular. He's never been big on gifts and if he wants something (so rare) he usually will want to buy it himself. I did speak on the phone with him for a while on Fathers Day though. Smiley Happy

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Was it a funny card or a sweet one? Sometimes a good ol' invested talk is the best!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Defiantly a sweet one. Thanking him for all the help he's ever done and being such a great supportive father and always believing in me Smiley Happy haha

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

That's awesome! It's always a great feeling when you have those around you who offer love and support!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

@melissabt - I would be happy with a box of chocolates from See's, too!

 

My father passed away 19 years ago.  Fathers' Day is just another day for me.

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Well, I hope that day was a good one nonetheless! Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

I love the idea of this thread, what a sweet thing to post about! 

 

I got to chat online with my dad since we're over 2000 miles away right now. I sent him a picture of a hand-carved bear I bought to give him when I see him next and he said it made him cry, which was a million miles beyond the reaction I thought I'd get! Smiley Happy He's impossible to buy for so I was thrilled to find the perfect thing for him.

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Awwww, you brought your poppa to tears! ^_^

 

Do you just happen to live in separate cities or is the distance due to work or travel (if you don't mine me asking)?

 

 

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Ahahaha it's a messy situation on my end at least. My dad went off with my uncle to some fishing retreat in the middle of nowhere (northern Saskatchewan, Canada) for the summer, so they are both thrilled to be gone. My husband and I were supposed to move from Canada to San Diego in November on about two or three weeks notice(!!) but it turned out I didn't have all my immigration stuff in order so I've been renting a little beachfront apartment south of Tijuana so my husband can visit me on the weekends. My parents visited me a couple months ago though, it was so good to see them!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

Wowie! Smiley Tongue I'm sure all the change in plans is at least allowing some great changes in scenery!

Re: Father's Day Sharing!

That is the one thing I can't argue with! I have 180 degrees of ocean to see and dolphins swim by every day if you watch for them, as well as the occasional seal and even whale. Smiley Happy
