Today it is all about the dads in our lives and the support they give us.

And it doesn't just have to be dads, it can be a step-dad, father-in-law, uncle or just a close family friend.

It is a special day for Brandon Hegedus who was at the Model T races on June 18 with his four daughters Izzy and Abbey, both 6 and Isla, 4 and Taylor, 2.

So far he knows they have made him cards.

"They want to show me they love me, but I want to show them I am proud to be their dad."
Hegedus says breakfast in bed might be a bit of a disaster, but it will be fun.

Feeding five-month-old Charlotte a bottle while watching the Model T races was a breeze for dad Mac Gillespie who was at the event with his wife Sarah and father Ross.

He says this fathers day is extra special because he has his older son, new baby and his dad Ross on hand to mark the day.

"We try to go fishing," he said. "We will come into town here at Emerson pond or go to Lake McGregor. Wherever it is easy to get to,"

He also hopes to get in bit of time in to relax as well.

For dad David Stobbe, he's looking forward to sleeping in, and then spending time with his family.

"This Fathers Day is particularly special for me because my daughter Hannah is graduating from High School on Monday," said Stobbe. "So we are celebrating her graduation on Fathers Day as well. I think that is an extra special gift for me."

He has three children Hannah 17, Holly 15 and Micah is 11.

Stobbe was at the tractor pull yesterday with Micah.
