Dads cherish family time

BEFORE dads Matt Lang and Mick Bourke got to enjoy their respective Father’s Days, the attention was on their children as the pair helped plan a special birthday party.

Lucy Bourke turned six last Friday and her dad Mick and uncle Matt oversaw her birthday party at Leslie Park on Saturday.

“She’s very excited, but she hasn’t forgotten about Father’s Day tomorrow,” Mr Bourke laughed.

“In fact I got an early present. I had a pair of boots that tore apart and I said ‘I wouldn’t mind getting some new ones’.

“So that’s what I got for Father’s Day.”

Mr Bourke’s brother-in-law Matt Lang was also on hand to help at the birthday activities on Saturday.

Father to Katie and Evie, he said he had “no idea” what his family had planned for the following day.

“I think they’re trying to keep it a surprise,” the Greenmount dad said.

“I’d be happy with a dirt bike though!”

Cousins Katie and Lucy, looking beautiful in their blue and pink tutus made by Mrs Lang, said they would be especially good for their dads on Father’s Day.
