  5. Cute ideas. I just love father’s day! It’s so nice to take a moment and acknowledge what my husband does for us. I think we’re going to print off one of those father’s day quiz-type sheets for each kid (where they answer cute questions about Dad). And we’ll also create a little video using iMovie on my phone; a day in the life of dad. I think it’ll be pretty cute to have the kids acting out what they think dad does all day 😉
