Happy (Almost) Father’s Day!

Once upon a time, there was another family member who laughed at the noises his own body made who was also totally adorable. And then life moved forward and he became the father of your child. In a few days we’ll be celebrating his very being for Father’s Day and I wanted to share with you, some of the best gifts, papas I know recently received that cost a little but meant a lot.

To all the rad dads out there, this one’s for you, Happy Father’s Day!

My friend Ed believes the “… the art from my kids still is the best but the smallest thing I refer to constantly is my Weber grilling cookbook. [It's] very suburban of me but I always check it for recipes and especially cooking times for different cuts of meat.” Handmade gifts are truly original and thoughtful and a fun and crafty way for a parent and child to spend time together. I wouldn’t have immediately thought to purchase dad a cookbook, but I guess, one related to barbecues (and the foods he enjoys) makes a pretty nifty gift.

Funny Fathers!

With Father’s Day right around the bend, this week’s posts will be dedicated to all the rad dads and soon-to-be-fathers out there. One of the things I remember fondly about my dad was his ability to make me laugh at all times. Even when times were tough! And I truly loved laughing with him. I found these videos of fathers and their families (many I’m sure you’ve already seen) and hope they bring a smile or belly laugh to you too:

The joy in all these videos is infectious. And I think it’s so sweet that the children and dads are laughing at the simplest things. I only wish we could have so much fun with our fathers every day!
