  1. My ideal weekend would be to give my husband a week long trip to Germany with our two kids. That way he can teach our children their family roots and give them a strong foundation of where they are from!

  4. My ideal Fathers Day weekend would be to take my dad to lunch and just spend the day talking about his childhood and growing up. He is getting older so he is not always able to just up and go somewhere. I love him so much and hope to have many many more Fathers Days with him. crispy_gibson@yahoo.com also sharing...

  6. My ideal Father's Day would to just be able to see my dad again and show him what amazing grandkids he has, and introduce him to my son who has his name. My dad passed away 15 years ago this August, and to just see him one more time would be the best Father's Day I could ever imagine.

  7. My ideal Father's Day would be a day of ocean fishing with my dad....he's only seen the ocean once and enjoys fishing. I think he'd get a real kick out of it.

  9. Sadly, my dad passed away a number of years ago. If he were here, I'd spend the day with him at a wooded campsite enjoying the beauty of nature and the warmth of family.

  11. I have always been so very thankful to have my dad in my life! I've always been a daddy's girl. He has taught me many things over the years like tooling leather, fishing, building rockets for science projects, grilling the best burgers, riding a bike, driving a car, changing the oil in the car and we've always loved to play bingo, spades and put together puzzles. He has included me in whatever he was doing and made time for me whenever I needed it.

    My ideal Father's Day would be to somehow put into words and make sure he knows how important he has been to me my whole life. I would encourage and set aside time for his grand kids to have that special time with him like he gave me. They love their papa almost as much as I love my daddy!

    Thank you for the opportunity to share.

  12. My father died about 35 years ago. We never really knew each other he was always working and was very distant after WWII. I guess I made my way with little influence from him.
    Now I have four daughters and 3 grandchildren with 2 more on the way due in about 2 months.
    I like to share my life with him, if only for a short while.

  20. I'd love to take my father for a one-on-one date for Father's Day. Something I've never done or had an opportunity to do. Now, I'm in Texas and he's in California.

  21. My Ideal Fathers Day would be to actually get to spend it with my Dad. Since moving to Texas from Canada almost 20 years ago I never get to see my Dad on Fathers Day :( It would not matter much what we did as long as we were together. He would most likely cook burgers on the grill for the kids and tell them stories about when he was a kid on the farm growing up and how hard he had to work. My Dad has an entrepreneurial spirit and is a big cheerleader for me in my new business he also is the reason I work hard and have the work ethic I have which I am soooo Thankful for. It is one of the many things my Dad taught me and one of the many reasons I love my Dad !! bellaromabliss@gmail.com https://twitter.com/BellaromaBliss

  22. My ideal Fathers Day, would be for my Daddy and me to just to get to be together.He passed away in 2007,and its just not the same without him.We were always best pals.From as early as I can remember he would always take me every where he went.My Mother,and Daddy,and I were like the three muskateers.When I got married,to my husband John,we then had our son Clark.The first thing my Dad said,when Clark was born, was"When can he come spend the night with us"?From that day forward, we all did most everything together.My dad offered to go to kindergarten with Clark on the day that a boa constricter was coming from the zoo,because he knew how terrified I would be.He always thought about what was good for everybody else.Daddy,I love and miss you very much.Love, Jennifer

  23. My father died when I was 3 years old, so I grew up not knowing what it was like to have a dad. But, I am married to an amazing man, who is an amazing dad to our 4 children. I think how lucky my children are to have a great father in which I did not. Being said, for Fathers Day, I would spend the day with my husband and our family at the beach, as we love the water and the beach is all our favorite place to be. We have our first grandbaby and we would take her to the beach for the first time. This would be an idea Father Day for my husband.

  24. I had the best Father's day planned for last year. My bothers and I were going to pick dad up at the nursing home and take him to the 2 story house in Frisco where our grandmother lived in the 50's and 60's. Someone bought the quaint house on Main street and turned it into a beautiful restaurant. The beautiful garden is now a parking lot, but a necessary change. Dad is blind and uses a cane, but at 93 still had a sharp mind. Brothers were coming in from out of town, but the Thursday before Father's Day, dad fell and ending up in the hospital fighting for his life on Father's day. He fought the pneumonia battle 3 more times and finally went to Heaven on December 20th. I'll miss him our first Father's day without Dad, but had so much fun planning the reunion last year.
