Hi, Friends!

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 18th, and if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking of ways to celebrate Dad this weekend. My husband is pretty laid back and wants to do the same thing every year: grill and play a video game. But being the adventurousΒ person that I am, you know I have to plan at least one day of us going out somewhere fun! πŸ™‚

So I looked online to see what’s going on in the D and Metro area and found six fun events that I think are a great way to celebrate Dad for Father’s Day. Whether you’re a parent of young children or an adult wanting to celebrate your father, there are events happening this weekend that everyone is sure to enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day!Β
