My Daddy's Birthday Surprise

My precious Daddy turned forty-five last month, and to celebrate, we gave him a surprise! Our family is pretty close and we don't ever keep secrets from each other, so this was really a challenge for us, me especially.  We did it though in the end, and he was very surprised and happy!

I won't explain to you how we did, (because it was very complicated) but we ended up getting him on an island on a beautiful lake and surprised him with his gift-- a canoe!  We ended up spending the afternoon canoeing around the island with my Uncle Tim, Aunt Kris, and cousin Mariah who brought their canoe as well.  Afterward, we went home and had hamburgers, watermelon, and brownies.

Can you guess?  Yes, he just saw it.

Can you believe how gorgeous this lake is?!?!
