Mem­o­rable ways to spend Fa­ther’s Day

The Southern Berks News - - FATHER’S DAY GUIDE -

Many dads and fa­ther fig­ures will at­test that Fa­ther’s Day is spe­cial be­cause they get to spend it with their fam­i­lies. While the gifts might be nice, it’s the time to­gether that dads truly cher­ish.

Fam­ily mem­bers who want to make Fa­ther’s Day ex­tra spe­cial this year may want to put ex­tra ef­fort into cus­tomiz­ing Fa­ther’s Day fun rather than shop­ping for gifts.

So what equates to a fun-filled and en­joy­able day for fa­thers? That all de­pends on Dad’s in­ter­ests. While no two fa­thers are the same, there are some univer­sal ideas that can make for a mem­o­rable Fa­ther’s Day.

Rest and re­lax­ation

Fa­thers do a lot for their fam­i­lies, and many fa­thers have hec­tic daily sched­ules. Come Fa­ther’s Day, Dad may just de­sire a day when he’s not called on to do any­thing. Pro­vide this for him by re­mov­ing many of the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that can bog your fa­ther down. This in­cludes chores that may be tack­led on Sun­days or even re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that Mom of­ten re­lies on him to tackle.

Spe­cial din­ner

On this spe­cial day, Dad may de­serve a din­ner that stands apart from more rou­tine fam­ily meals. A spe­cially cooked meal that the en­tire fam­ily pre­pares to­gether or a reser­va­tion at a fa­vorite restau­rant will no doubt bring a smile to Dad’s face. Make sure that the meal in­cludes his fa­vorite foods.

Fa­vorite ac­tiv­ity

Plan the day around an ac­tiv­ity that Dad en­joys. If he’s an avid fish­er­man, this could mean tak­ing the rods out and spend­ing a few hours see­ing what’s bit­ing. Or it may in­volve at­tend­ing a ball­game, watch­ing his fa­vorite movie or play­ing a few rounds of golf.

Fa­ther’s Day is a spe­cial day that many fa­thers would in­sist is even bet­ter when spent with fam­ily.
