Ella had a "great idea" for Father's Day this year, and I just had to share it. The plan was to take him out for lunch after church, but she wanted it to be a surprise. So before church, she got out her sleep mask (no she doesn't sleep with it; it came with her bedding) and packed it in her church bag. Chris was made to put it on in the church parking lot.
He was thoroughly embarrassed.
When we arrived at the location she had chosen (Texas Roadhouse), I said, "Ella how about I let you and daddy out here at the door." She loved that idea and wouldn't let dad take his face mask off. So he stood outside the door at T.R. waiting for me to return. Unfortunately, I didn't think to snap that picture.
He was such a good sport about the whole thing, and Ella had a fantastic time surprising him. They're a great pair, this girl and her daddy!
