We spent Father's Day outside celebrating our family by spending the time together and enjoying each other's company.
We BBQ'd, swam, played in the sprinklers, raced around on the go-kart, bounced on the trampoline, kicked balls around the yard, and took trips around the block on scooters and bikes. Because my husband is never satisfied and loves toys, we bought him a new, faster motor for the go-kart for Father's Day and a new miter saw.
Whenever I start to get annoyed at my husband's insistence on new toys, I have to remind myself that this is how he bonds with our kids and where he finds joy outside of the daily grind of work. While I might not "get it", I don't have to. He is a tinkerer. He enjoys it. Our kids benefit greatly from his tinkering around the house and on their toys, so if that means that I have to buy a new, faster motor for his new go-kart (a new motor after only like a month of owning it?!?) and a new saw (why does any person need so many different kinds of saws?!?), to keep him happy and busy in the garage, I am in. That's how you make for a Happy Father's Day for a tinkerer.
