It is Fathers' Day today in New Zealand. We have two very special guests speaking - Andrew Thorburn, the CEO of Bank of New Zealand, and Timo Tagaloa, ex Rugby Sevens Player. Gravity kids enjoyed some game-time with Timo.
When I told Timo I teach ESOL to Samoan and Tongan kids, and we are studying rugby, he signed a special card for me. I am going to be very popular with my kids tomorrow. The dads were treated to a free BBQ sausage sizzle.

My niece sang this song for her dad.
I am a very proud aunty. This is Emily Chan, my brother Charles and sis-in-law Karen's baby daughter. Yes, no matter whether you are 23 , or you are 2, you are always your parents' baby, especially if you are the youngest child in the family.
Emily plays the guitar, piano and sings. She writes all her own songs and had recorded her music. Her music style is alternative/indie rock. Here she sings this aged old Chinese song for her Dad this father's day. http://ann-mythoughtsandphotos.blogspot.com/2010/09/thursday-theme-song-moms-best_08.html

For reflection, if you look carefully, Dad Jeff is cooking his sausages, you can see the reflection of the winter trees in the window. The Dad of my family cleaned his car and mine, and I immortalized it with this photo.
