When you’ve got a widowed dad and he lives along, your visits are most likely the coolest things that happen to him. He looks forward to your visits more than anything else going on his life and so there’s a lot of responsibility. He’s going to be relying on you to entertain him and to spend some quality time with him. This can be a challenge to not go insane, so when you are going to visit your dad you have to make sure that you do it right and do the things that will make him so happy you’re there and proud of you and that way you two can focus on the important things, your friendship and relationship and watching your favorite sports teams on the tv. Here are some great ideas for your visit with Dad.
Cook Him His Favorite Meal
If your dad is anything like mine, he will reject the idea of you cooking for him since it’ll be easier just to eat our or to heat something up. But what could be more special than cooking him some meal he not only hasn’t had in a long time, but was his favorite meal growing up. Make sure to get him to tell you about it so you can plan ahead of time how to make it. But with the internet the way it is these days, meaning chalk full of information at your finger tips, we’re pretty sure you can come up with something that reminds him of his youth, something his mom used to make that he hasn’t had in years. That’ll be a fun way to spend some quality time together.
Rent a Cool Car
Another thing is that when you’re visiting your dad, you’ll want to show him a good time, make him feel young again. You can’t very well go out to the ball field and shag flies like maybe you used to when you were a kid, but you can do some other things. For example, you can rent a cool car, a convertible even, from a place like www.avonrents.com. Why the heck not? Why not put a little spice into life and have a fun car to tool around in during your visit. Sure it’s a few extra bucks but I bet your dad will have a good time, and what difference does it make if it’s a few bucks for a bunch more fun. Live a little! Plus cars aren’t that expensive to rent at https://www.avonrents.com, so now you have no excuse.
Another great thing to do is to watch the Star Wars trilogy, and of course we’re talking Episodes 4-6, or the real, original star wars trilogy. Not that stupid modern noise that is a travesty. If you have three nights there, watch one movie each night. It’ll be a fun walk down memory and nostalgia lane, plus when was the last time you actually sat down and watched all three in a short amount of time?
