Silver Spring’s Guide to the Perfect Father’s Day

June 17, 2015

This Sunday, families across the nation will travel near and far to gather for one special day that “celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives”: Father’s Day.

Whether you’re celebrating the man who fathered you or the one your children call “Dad,” Sunday is a day to be spent showing him how much he’s appreciated.

For all of the residents of ROSS’ apartments in Montgomery County, here are three unique options to making sure the father-figure in your life has the most special Father’s Day in Silver Spring.

OPTION 1: MAKE HIM FEEL LIKE A CELEBRITY

June 21 is called Father’s Day after all, so spend the day making the father in your life feel like this day was created to honor him and him alone! Go out of your way to treat him like a celebrity by making sure he rarely has to lift a finger because he’s being waited on hand and foot; and finally, by making sure he’s showered with attention throughout the entire day. You can choose to treat him like an A-list celebrity or a D-list celebrity; but the bottom line is, simple gestures like offering to get him his favorite beverage when his glass is empty or letting him pick what television show you watch that night, go a long way!

OPTION 2: TAKE OVER ALL FOOD DUTIES

Many of us refer to our dads as “king of the grill” or “breakfast master,” because they’re usually the ones in charge of food duty on the weekends, while Mom steps up and tackles the rest of the week. Break the cycle this Father’s Day and offer to make all of the Sunday meals so the special Dad in your life doesn’t have to prepare a single item of food in your Silver Spring apartment for rent.

Wake up a few minutes early to fix him his favorite breakfast; offer to whip up his favorite lunch; and when it comes to dinner, make sure you serve him all of the foods he loves. (Bonus: the rest of the family will love it as much as he does!)

OPTION 3: PLAN A FUN FAMILY EVENT

The most special parts of Father’s Day is gathering as a family and spending loving, quality time with the man your kids call dad. This can be done in a variety of ways. For example, you can plan for everyone to attend the Silver Spring Blues Festival – the free, block-party-style musical celebration happening in Downtown Silver Spring. If you live in one of ROSS’ Silver Spring pet-friendly apartments for rent, you can grab the entire family (including the dogs) and go for a nice long walk on one of the nearby trails. Or, if you’re looking to have a more low key day, you can simply mix up a batch of refreshing drinks, gather on your private balcony or patio, and reminisce on all of the great family moments you’ve all shared over the years.

This Father’ Day, try to plan something special for someone special in your life. Then, end the day on the most loving note of all: taking a tour of ROSS’ Silver Spring apartments for rent. They not only provide you access to all of these amazing Father’s Day activities, but with all of their top-of-the-line features and amenities, Dad will be sure to love it.
