When it comes to holidays and celebrations our family is all about going big. Birthdays aren't just days - they're weeks (sometimes we even talk it into being a month of celebration)! Holidays like Father's Day is definitely a weekend worth of acknowledgement. And this year is no exception!

Dominic is pretty lucky in that he basks in a good 2 months of celebration in his honor between his birthday in May and Father's day in June. Yep, the end of Spring is his golden season for sure.

To make sure I don't forget anything I always make a to do list. Because yes, if it isn't written down, it ain't gonna happen! Between my list and our family calendar there is no missing out on any of the five keys to a successful celebration. 

Here's the breakdown for Father's Day this year ...

EAT YUMMY FOOD
Hello! No celebration is complete without good food. For Father's Day, Dominic requested homemade hot wings. He knows to pull this favor for his birthday or Father's Day because I hate frying food at home - so messy. But, for Father's Day, I'll don my apron and get to it. I can't wait until Jemma is old enough to take this job over. I think we're going to grill corn (delicious!) and I'll be making Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies. 

PLAN A FUN ACTIVITY (OR TWO)
This year we have two activities going on. One with the kids and one without. Since the babies are still, well, babies, going out is more high energy and less relaxing. Hence, two activities - a family one and a date night. For our family event we're going bowling with our extended family and for date night ... get this, we're picking up tickets to the exclusive Walmart Premiere Night Screening of Man of Steel that debuts at 7pm on June 13th. Tickets to this exclusive event are available only at Walmart in the Electronics department, so add a Walmart stop to your errand list - it's on mine!

Here's the Man of Steel preview ... I'm even excited for this one! Well, that and a big ol' tub of buttery popcorn and a SKOR bar :)

WRITE SOMETHING SWEET
We make it a point to give meaningful cards on special days. Dominic and I both have keepsake boxes in our closet that we store these sweet words in and Jemma loves decorating our group card. It is so fun look back at cards and pictures from over the years.

GIVE A GIFT OF AWESOMENESS
Ha - it's not always awesome. Sometimes just practical. This year, Dominic is getting a taste of both. An autographed Kansas Jayhawks picture thing. I'll admit, I don't even remember what it is without going to look at it. He emailed me an eBay link awhile back and I won the auction, so fabulous! For practicality ... new socks. But not just any socks, Nordstrom socks. Apparently they are the best and don't get holes in the toes.
 
BE WITH THE ONES YOU LOVE
The simplest ingredient to any successful celebration is being with the fam, plain and simple. 

So, what's in store for your Father's Day? Is Man of Steel on the docket?
