Several years ago, we invented Brother's Day. Why?
We celebrate that they are each other's best friends.
Why? We want to create traditions that encourage our family time together. We're so busy in our normal life, that setting one day aside a year to celebrate them is worth it! This family tradition strengthens their brotherly bond and they look forward to it all year! It also reinforces how much we love them!
How do celebrate? We learned the hard way that trying to celebrate it randomly in the middle of the summer, was too hard. We do not have a specific date, we just tell them it will happen when we're on vacation.
The Plan for the DayDonuts for breakfast
Sandwiches for lunch
Dinner out - kid friendly restaurant
Special Event: Sunset "cruise" (my youngest cried when it was all over)
We also give them a few little presents that they can use together. Nothing big - matching t-shirts and a pool toy. (things we would have already purchased for the summer)
We used to let them purchase something for each other.... but after the trip to Walmart 2 years ago we've decided to nix that idea.
