I am very blessed to have three great examples of what it means to be a great father in my life and Father's Day is a great day to stop and think about all the things your dad or father-like figure has done for you and all the great memories you've shared. It always helps to get a gift or two for them, but to me it is more about reflecting on their importance in you and your family's life!
Growing up my dad was very hands on... especially when it came to sports! From him coaching me to playing in the backyard with me and my two older brothers, we have had plenty of great times. I appreciate him and all that he has done for our family growing up. He worked so hard for our family so that we could play the sports we wanted and get a good education. Adam's dad is another example of a great father who has always been a great role model for Adam to follow. He has worked so hard all his life to provide for Adam and his mom and siblings. Without him Adam would have never been able to play four sports in high school, do other things he wanted to do, or try out in the NFL! We are so grateful for both of them and all that they have done for us and continue to do! With two great examples already, it has been so much fun to see Adam as a father and how great of a dad he has been to Asher over the past year and a half. He truly is the best dad and is so hands on (like my dad!), wants to be around as much as he can, and provide as much as he can to Asher. You can tell he loves Asher so much and I love seeing them together. I can't wait to see all the new things Asher does with his dad over the years.
Back to the gift idea! If you are looking for something for a special father or father figure, or if it's your husband who is a great dad to your children, I think you ought to get them something special this Fathers day. ;) Hammer Made has so many great gift ideas to choose for your dad this Father's Day (I just stopped in last week to pick up a few things). We love Hammer Made, especially with it being founded here in Minnesota! Adam loves everything from their nice dress shirts to the funky socks! They offer a wide variety of items such as belts, ties, cotton t shirts, and cufflinks. The material is nice, comfortable, and appealing. Everything is at an affordable price for the quality material you get.
More importantly though...I think every son/ father needs a matching dress shirt! Hammer Made has the cutest father son shirt collection right now! This is what Adam and Asher are in to the right...how cute are they!!! Hammer Made also offers matching father-son socks, which is less then $20 bucks!

They have locations at the Galleria in Edina, MOA, Ridgedale Center in Minnetonka, and the airport. I hope you all have a great weekend and Father's Day. Remember to thank your husbands/ dads in your life for all that they have done...you probably don't tell them enough and I'm sure it would mean the world to them!
