Playing catch with dad is like a childhood right of passage and with it comes a lifetime of cherished memories. That’s because playing catch with dad is so much more than just tossing the ball around, it’s about making extraordinary memories and influencing young men. It’s an activity that allows you to spend important quality one on one time together and today I’ve partnered with Dickies® to talk all about Playing Catch with Dad and Making Extraordinary Memories!
Playing catch isn’t just fun, it’s a particularly conducive activity to bonding. Maybe that’s because men don’t particularly like sitting face to face and talking about their feelings. It’s much easier, at least at our house, to open up when you’re doing something side by side and the conversation can naturally flow while tossing the ball back and forth.
I can remember my babies barley being able to stand the first time my husband started tossing a ball back and forth with them. And now that they are older they still love playing catch with dad. Especially my son, anytime he can spend time doing “boy things” with just dad he lights up.
The boys like playing catch just about anywhere, but my son loves it when dad takes him to the baseball fields to throw the ball around. Dad loves giving him some pointers on catching the ball and being baseball ready. And Parker loves hanging out in the dugout with his favorite person.

I snapped this photo of my son sitting next to his dad after playing catch and it melted my heart. The relationship between a boy and his father greatly shapes the man he will become in the future.
I thought this quote was fitting for how this photo made me feel. I created a free printable with it, I though it would be the perfect addition to our Father’s Day gift for dad. It’s a gently reminder that these simple moments are shaping the future of our son and helping him grow into the man he is meant to be. These moments are so simple, yet so big.
