-Weekend-Whaddup-Father’s Day Edition
It’s that time, no it’s not national pet rock day or pasta day… but it is Father’s Day weekend. Have the kids make dad a card, bring him breakfast in bed (although I prefer breakfast out-hint-hint) and just let dad know he is more than a ride to school, someone to take out the trash, and a reminder to clean up your room.
There is also a ton to do around town, so here we go… this is your Weekend-Whaddup!
