We're an unromantic bunch. We're giving DH permission to go ahead and buy which tool he wants. He has his eye on a lathe, a drill press, and a jig saw. I know that we would buy the wrong one or wrong model, so we told him to go ahead and pick it out, Happy Father's Day! It's what works for us. For Mother's day I got the go ahead to buy the 2 slings I'd been eyeing.
Last year I went to the little park down by the mall and I took pictures of the kids and framed the( they were really good pictures too, if I do say so myself). He also got some Manchester United themed gifts from the kids.
This year he is getting a nice dinner while we are in Florida, a Chive t-shirt ( silly I know but he will be surprised ) and more Manchester United themed crap ( oh I mean gifts). He and all the guys on my side of the family are getting a fishing trip next week while we are in Florida.
