It’s Father’s Day this weekend and if you’re lucky enough to have a father in your life, there are some great treats for him this weekend. Of course, the NBA Finals is on, pitting the Miami Heat against the surging young Oklahoma City Thunder, so leaving him alone in front of the flat screen might be enough for dear old dad. If not, then New Edition and the Fresh Music Festival are still on tour, and “That’s My Boy” is in theaters. If you do have a great dad, let him know you appreciate him on his day and whatever you guys do, of course, keep it safe.

We are not enemies, we are parents. And we are parents 1st. S/O to @monyettashaw for making Mason's bday memorable. S/O to @itscrystalsmith at home taking care of our other lil' Prince. ❤️❤️❤️ THIS IS WHAT CO-PARENTING LOOKS LIKE. #Blessed #Happy #AboveTheDrama #BiggerThanUs
