Father’s Day Memories, $50 Amazon E-Gift Card Giveaway

image for a coupons.com sponsored amazon gift card giveawayYesterday was Memorial Day, a day in which we give thanks to those who served our country fighting dictators and tyrants in faraway lands. Soon though, we will be giving thanks to those who fight dictators and tyrants much closer to home. So close to home that they’re actually inside one, maybe even right as you’re reading this. I’m talking about dads and Father’s Day and the tyrants are their kids (sometimes).

So June 16, 2013 we will all join together and give praise to fathers for the very important work they do. Since becoming a father myself a couple years ago, I’ve developed a greater appreciation for both Father’s and Mother’s days. I’ll be honest and say that I can’t really remember any Father’s Days before children (B.C.) My dad always lived in another state so I’m pretty sure all Father’s Days were celebrated over the phone.

I know that on my first FD (Eliza wasn’t born yet but I’ll still count it), Amanda and I were at the Denver Zoo and I talked to my dad on my Droid X at the Red Wolf exhibit. Then last year I don’t have any recollection what we did. I checked out my archives to see what was going on and just found a pic of Eliza passed out in her high chair. Haha.

Well, Father’s Day this year will be pretty cool now that I’m a father of two super awesome kids. You know what else is awesome? The giveaway right after this paragraph. It’s for a $50 Amazon e-gift card provided by Coupons.com.  All you have to do is tell your favorite Father’s Day memory in the comments and enter through the Rafflecopter. There are also a few other options for you to get more entries, you should do them too. You want to win, right? Well, sorry to put you through all this reading. Here’s the entry form.

    My favorite fathers day memory is far and away speaking to my daughter over a sat phone from Southern Iraq. I’m pretty sure that she didn’t even remember who I was. It still felt like heaven to hear her voice.

  3. Chris

    My favorite Father’s Day memory was the look on my kid’s faces when they gave me their handmade presents last year.

  4. seattledad

    I don’t remember much of what we did for our dad either. It was probably not all that special, at least not as much as it should have been.

    My favorite Father’s Day was in 2009. It was my first true Father’s Day since my son had been born just 8 months earlier. I don’t recall doing anything special that day other than spending it with my wife and son.

  6. Concretin Nik

    Gotta say the first Father’s Day was my favorite. Got my first ever FD card from a friend I hadn’t heard from in well over 10 years! THAT was a surprise. And for that day to suddenly have DIRECT relevance to ME… whoa. Sometimes bein’ a grown up sucks, but it definitely doesn’t on Father’s Day.

    Appreciate the giveaway!

    I remember always making my father his favorite brownies for Father’s Day.
