A Dozen Days for Dad

 Steve is pretty awesome at being a fun Dad and in the best way possible. He never forces his kids to do things they don't dare to do. They completely trust, not to mention adore him. So for Father's day I thought we could continue on the Fun with Dad theme. After being shown an album a friend made for her husband with a years worth of date nights in it, I tweaked it a bit and came up with this "A dozen days of fun" album. 

 The cover even sports a crayon marking to capture the true essence of being a parent.  hehehe

 Each page is made up of a large and small envelope. The large to hold a paper stating the date and what fun activity we'll do that day and the small to store gift cards, tickets, cash or whatever we may need to make the activity happen! 

Some dates were for the whole family, and some were for just Steve and one other family member.  Instead of having them go year round, We just planned 12 summer days to enjoy (because our attention spans aren't quite that great). Needless to say he really liked it. He even said "This thing is pretty cool" which is praise from him in it's highest form. :)  What's more... you can fill the envelopes with pictures and keepsakes from each activity when you're done.
