Men. They never specify or tell you what they want/need.
I had to kind wing it this year & just do my own thing for Jake.
Oh wait- This was the first year we ever celebrated father's day for someone else other than our own.
We got dad some new razors he's been wanting to try.
I gotta admit- It looks really cool. I think I wanna try some too! wink wink (not really)
We also got our Papa Bear some yummy treats 'cuz let's face it. What guy doesn't want yummy goods for his office?
The man got me some coupons of none interrupted sleep (for Mother's Day), so I thought I'd make him three fishing coupons- Good for any time, if he asks first. Ha!
Valid through Oct. 2014 :) So I guess not really good any time.
The sisters in our ward were asked to help volunteer to bring treats for all the dads.
Here are my "pops" for all the cool ones out there.
I made Jake some fishing cupcakes, along w/his coupons for going fishing.More goodies for our Papa Bear
Jovi made this little craft for her dada, who she loves ever so much.
I wish it would've turned out a little cuter, but it is what it is
I'm so grateful for this hard working man of ours, that we like to call dad.
He gets his great work ethic from his dad, so thank you Papa Joe for raising a man well.
We weren't able to talk to Papa Joe this Father's Day, because he left for scout camp earlier.
Last year we ran into the same problem, but were able to catch him before he ran out of cell service.
We hope it was a good one, Papa Joe. You're loved dearly in this household.
I sure do love seeing Jake do all these manly things.
He's in such a zone when he's mowing our lawn, and I love seeing him so happy.
He takes such great care of us & likes doing all these home improvement things, to our newly purchased home.
Thank you for working so hard, Papa Bear, so I can be a stay at home mom and have this one-on-one quality time (which we both feel is extremely important in our household).
We hope you had a great first Father's Day, Jake. Enjoy some fishin & yummy treats!
To make Father's Day even more special, this year, Jake was sustained and set apart on Sunday, for his new callings.
That's right. Callings…TWO!
He was called the week prior and I knew it would be a big one, when they asked us both to come in the room.
Jake is now the assistant scout master, and deacon's quorum advisor.
He'll be planning monthly camp-outs for the young men in our church, and he'll be required to attend scout camp this summer, as well.
Since we'll be gone the week PRIOR to scout camp, he won't be able to attend the ENTIRE week, but at the very least he'd attend one night at the end of the camp.
I know he's looking forward to the monthly camp-outs.
From what I hear, they're pretty hard core w/them.
Jake is just the perfect guy for these callings, and I know he'll excel at them.
These are both right up his ally.
When he was being called to these assignments, he mentioned how he had great young men leaders (growing up), and that he hopes to carry on those examples to these young men as well.
As for us girls? Jake will be gone every Wednesday night, for weekly activities w/these boys, and one Friday a month for the camp outs.
Our Papa Bear will be spending lots of time in the Uintahs and I know he aint mad about it!
Happy campin boys!
