Rockport Dads Share Their Father’s Day “Dad-tivities”

Fathers Day HeaderFather’s day is fast approaching and it’s got us all thinking about how we’re going to show the Dads in our lives how much we love and appreciate them. Sure, the typical Dad’s Day Gifts come to mind, but there’s also the subject of what to do.  It is, after all, his special day, so we found ourselves wondering: what is it that Dads really want to do on Father’s Day? Spend time with family? Play 18 holes? Binge watch their favorite TV show?

To find out, we polled some of the Dads in our office to get some real insight into what “Dad-tivities” would make their Father’s Day the perfect day.

“It would be awesome to hit up the beach, kick back and be pampered a little with some homemade sandwiches and my family around. I would be rocking the Cape Noble 2  down to the beach, but on arrival I would switch into the Kevka Lake Slide  for the ultimate chill mode, saving the Cape Nobles for the night out with the family.”

“I’m running a Father’s Day 5K roadrace with my kids in the morning, followed by golfing with my son and father-in-law in the afternoon, and ending the day with an evening cookout with all siblings, nieces, nephews and Dads! I’ll be wearing the Path to Greatness Slip On for the evening’s festivities.”

I’ll be wearing the Bennett Lane 3 Boat Shoes  because you can just throw them in the wash at the end of the day.”

I always wear my Rugged Bucks Waterproof Boots when I ride. And for the BBQ I’ll most likely wear my test pair of Total Motion Fusion Loafers (which won’t launch until Spring 17) but they’re awesome.”
