Father's Day is Almost here, what are you planning? 5 ideas for our Father's Day!

Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, but it is also celebrated widely on other days. Father's Day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. 

My husband's birthday is 4 days before Father's day so he gets two celebrations within the week.  How do you plan on celebrating?  

Here are 5 ideas:

1. Search Pinterest for Father's Day.   Here are a few suggestions I found via Pinterest...

2.  Make a special meal for your loved one!  My family loves Shepard's Pie, I think that would make a great dinner.  So simple, ground hamburger meat, place on bottom layer of square 9x9, add a layer of canned corn, then add mashed potatoes to the top.  The kids add ketchup on top.  Mmm!  

3.  Rent a movie that has a great Father type story.  We have Netflix, so I found a few good oldies, Father of the Bride, Field of Dreams, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

4.  Hold hands, give extra hugs, and a few extra kisses!  

5.  Ask your Father or Husband what he would like to do on his special day!  Sometimes just by asking you can sit back and enjoy the day spent the way they wanted and not stress over if they like what you did for them.  

I hope you enjoyed my ideas and if you have some please share with me by leaving me a comment!

What Do We Teach Each Other Without even Knowing?

"It's the little things done consistently over time, straight from your heart, that actually have the greatest impact." - Unknown
What a great teaching from my Instagram friend @heathersanto
I taught my daughters friend how to make a heart with her hands and shadow.
The Dad's were teaching their boys the fun game of basketball!
My Instagram friend @sugarpaperdesigns, she has the most amazing papercrafts and I love all her beautiful photos!  This one captured my heart <3
The kids were showing us the way to the pool!  Teaching us a new path to follow.
They found the pool entrance.  Teaching us patience, we almost get to swim soon!
The bridge provided a great view of the area and we were taught that alligators sometimes are in the lake.
A simple reminder of stopping to view the flowers is what I teach my kids everyday!

What did you teach today?

Random sightings of beauty and hearts, ww entry

How many times do you randomly stop and look for beauty and hearts?  I see them all over, I guess it's because that is what I love!  What is your favorite sight to see?
The Beauty of a Red Flower I found on my walk to see my nephew.
The beauty of an Angel in the Seattle Children's Hospital Gift Shop.
I found these heart sunglasses, I've been looking for them for a while!
The beauty of a sunburst behind swirly clouds.
I see my reflection, my Sister-In-Law Tina and I went on her first outing from the hospital and we found this Heart photo!

Have you ever spent time in Seattle? WW entry

I am spending the week in Seattle, Washington to be a support for my nephew Austin that has surgery scheduled at Seattle Children's Hospital.  We can see the Space Needle from his window. He has lots of family praying and believing for him!  One of the things I love about Seattle is there are so many beautiful flowers in bloom this Spring.  Have you ever been to Seattle?

Dandelion's are so pretty in the sunlight!
Lovely Architecture at the Seattle Children's Hospital
Beautiful Seattle Sunset out Austin's Window
Out for a walk around the hospital and I found this heart on the window!
Love the Purple flowers on this tree!
Looks like snow on this tree!
