DADS are best described as a daughter’s first love and a son’s first hero – and tomorrow is the one day of the year to spoil and dote on the man who holds a special place in their child’s heart.

Four-year-old Tyson Carpenter has no plans to take it easy on his dad Mick this Father’s Day, with the boys heading to the golf club for breakfast before they battle it out on the golf course.

When asked who is the better golfer, Tyson teed off: “It’s me, because I can do real big shots.”

Tyson said he loves his father, and Dad’s his hero because he keeps him in good supply of toy cars.

When hanging with dad, Tyson says his favourite pastime is gaming on their PlayStation.

St Mary’s prep students have this week been crafting presents to present to dad for his big day tomorrow.

“We made biscuits and they are little daddies and they look like gingerbread men,” Bridget Hardy said.

All kind of treats were used to make the authentic replicas of their idols, with Bridget using sprinkles, liquorice, lolly snakes and icing to perfect her dad’s image.

While Bridget has a special treat planned for her daddy on Sunday, it seems he may have other ideas.

“I’m going to make my dad bacon and eggs for breakfast in bed, but he wants mummy to cook it because she is the best cooker,” she said.

If you’re still stuck for a Father’s Day gift this morning, why not try your luck at winning an awesome new boat.

The impressive machine will be raffled off at 11.15am today at Warwick Tackle and Tusk.
