Happy Father's Day!

For Father's Day this year, I put together a year of Daddy-Daughter Dates for my husband and oldest daughter. Little Monkey is now two and a half years old! She is at such a fun age that I figured it was the perfect time for her and daddy to start having one on one outings together.

I found this super cute matchbook notepad at the dollar store. On each page I wrote the month, then what the date for that month was. My husband will pick which day of the month he wants to do the date. 

Each date has an estimated price of how much that date will cost. Some are free and some cost money. I taped the last two pages of the book together to make an envelope to put money into so all the dates are "paid" for ahead of time. I called this the Daddy-Daughter Date Bank.

If one date costs less than what I estimated, the change can go back into the bank in case another date costs more than what I budgeted for.

I also added some Swap Out ideas. If one or two of the dates don't spark my husbands interest, there are some alternative date ideas that he could do in place of the one he doesn't like.

I think this will be a special tradition that my husband and daughters can do as they grow older. Plus, when daddy is out with one of the girls on a date, the other daughter and mommy can have one on one time too! :)

Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's out there!
