Ditch the boring tie this Father's Day and treat Dad to a unique experience that combines pancakes and cool planes!

The Perfect Father's Day Gift

I don't know what your dad is like, but mine is a pain in-the-you-know-what to buy gifts for...so is my mom.

I love giving gifts that are meaningful. I want it to be obvious that I put some real thought into what I got for them, and didn't just pick up the first thing I saw on the rack. When it comes to my parents, my gift intentions may be great, but my execution is not.

My parents are very much the "don't buy me anything", "don't spend a lot of money", and "we already buy the things we want and need" kind of people, so what's a loving daughter to do? Treat them to an experience!

I'm pretty sure any dad would love the excuse to do something fun and unique with his family, and this 'Fly-in or Drive-in Pancake Breakfast' at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport in Janesville, Wisconsin this weekend might be the ticket to Father's Day success!
