~Love When That Happens~

So I told the kids earlier that Father's Day is coming next month. My husband loves fishing but doesn't have poles anymore. So we are planning to get him poles for Father's day and we can all go fishing together!! We are taking my husbands cousin home and somehow fishing came up in conversation. My husband said I would love to go fishing again, I haven't been in a while. Score for me! Lol. At least I know he will definitely love this plan!! =)

I bought a nice catfish pole 5-6 years ago and think I've only been out a half-dozen times since. Got a camping lantern for night fishing at the same time and it's never left the box yet.

This Father's Day will definitely be a win for you and the kids, and especially for your husband. I, too, love fishing, but don't get to go nearly as often as I'd like.

I spent many happy hours fishing with my dad and brothers when I was young, still love it to this day. It is always a good feeling knowing your gift is going to be enjoyed.

I'm planning on getting my guy a wooden picnic table for Father's Day since he got me a new gazebo and swing for the back yard (I'm typing this while sitting on the swing right now!). I know he's wanted a picnic table for a while, especially so the kids can hang outside more often in the summer, so this will be perfect. Cheaper than a new grill too. ;)

That'll be a totally great gift for him! My dad used to fish too . . . I have fond memories of our family fishing trips at various lakes. It'll be neat to see his reaction when the time comes!!!

@LovingMyBabies Is this going to be a total surprise? How are you guys going to present him with his fishing gifts? I was thinking how funny it would be make a fake fishing pole with a line . . . he'd have to reel his way to the end of the line to find his gift which ends up somewhere like in the garage or a closet (where the REAL poles are ).
