Stupid fathers day gift? Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

So my DH made today really special for me. Helped my kids pick out an awesome gift, cards they signed as well as ones they made for me, made a delicious dinner, etc---overall I was very spoiled. And for fathers day I want to do something special.



I was thinking of planning an overnight trip in a cabin in Mt Charleston (a nice mountain break from the Vegas heat and only 40 minutes from my house). My DH loves the outdoors. It would be my DH and I, our kids, and our dogs. I figured bring some hot dogs to grill, I will pack some good food, just a good 24-36 hours as a family away from the Vegas heat and the craziness of everything. I would pick up a few small gifts for him as well. Does that sound like a stupid gift?

It sounds like a very nice gift! SO got me gift cards to Macy's for Mother's Day. I'll probably get him a wallet for Father's Day and make him a card with the baby's handprints or footprints.

Um...no. It doesn't sound stupid at all. It sounds wonderful. My SO woke me up with a white mocha, flowers, and a beautiful card that said, 'to the love of our lives' on the envelope. I cried.

I am from Vegas also, well up till about 1.5 years ago, take him to mt. get out of the heat and stay at the lodge or get a cabin up there, take a hike in the trail. I miss it, and just surprise him. With gifts. Things like that. I would do it if I still lived there. I miss it so much, sadly even the heat. haha. It sounds like a great thing to do. It sounds like an amazing thing to do. Get away from the city haha.
