Do you have a plan for Father’s Day brunch this year?! What about gifts?!

I always take updated pictures of our girls for my husband and try to get him something else he will love. We also love to explore the food in our new city for special occasions. We have been coming to Central Florida on vacations for many years, with and without kids, and have experienced a lot of the food that Disney World can offer. But we also like to take the opportunity to walk around downtown Clermont and see what new places we can discover!

Do you know where to take your partner to brunch to celebrate his status as a father?

We love celebrating Father’s Day with a family meal here at Orlando Mom Collective – because who wants to be at home doing dishes anyway?! The special guys in our lives love to eat, so we asked them what their dream Father’s Day celebration lunch would be and here are their answers!
