The AJC wants to you to vote for the Greatest Dad in Atlanta but you have to submit his photo and a brief statement about why he is the greatest dad by today (June 16). Voting will then take place from June 17 through June 19. The Greatest Dad winner will be announced on June 20.
So how will you be celebrating Dad this year? Will you shower him with gifts, make him some BBQ, give him some free time for golf or play video games?
What will you give to the grandfathers and Papas out there? How do they rate?
I have made photo books of the kids for the grandfathers since they live so far away now.
We got Michael the new ESPN book, a new shirt, a sunshade for his car window and a photo book. I wanted to get him a new MP3 player since he’s had his since Lilina was born but I walked out of the Best Buy confused. I think he’ll have to pick it out for himself later.
In the past we have given the grandfathers movie passes – so they’ll take us to the movies!
So what’s the big plan? How will you make him feel appreciated and special?
