Don and I had a nice surprise tonight. The two of us went out to dinner since we didn't have youth group and Jake has a class on Wednesday nights. We went to our favorite BBQ place. Right as our food was about to be served, Don's cell phone rang. It was our daughter, Danielle. All of a sudden Don breaks out into a huge grin and I could tell something was up.
She knew where we were because she and him had been text messaging. She called to ask us if we could order her something to eat. Yep, that's right... she showed up at the restaurant as a birthday surprise for Don and I. Yes, if you must know - my birthday is Saturday and Don's is Sunday.
Evidently, she had been planning this little trip for some time. She and Jake had been in cahoots with each other and other people/relatives knew about it. She had to take time off work and has sacrificed a few activities for the weekend by coming up and spending time with us. We had actually planned to go down to see her on Saturday but she made up some excuse to keep us from further planning. She was pretty sneaky.
She couldn't have given us a better birthday present. Even if we don't do a thing on Saturday, I feel like my birthday is complete and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you, Dani.
