My dad is the type who is always doing something for other people and rarely treats himself. This past Christmas we wanted to surprise him with a present he wouldn’t see coming. My stepmom and I joked about getting NASCAR tickets and the more we thought about it, the less crazy it sounded. We had been trying to get my Dad to go to the Daytona 500 for years and knew if his Christmas present was tickets he wouldn’t have the option to say no. Lucky for my brother and I, my step-mom decided this could be a family trip. No way was this NASCAR fan turning down that offer! We carefully selected tickets that we thought Dad would enjoy, he likes being up higher so that you can see more of the track. Then, we patiently (who are we kidding? I was busting at the seams) waited for the tickets to come in and for Christmas Eve to give them to him.
We were told the actual tickets wouldn’t arrive until after Christmas but, of course, they arrived in the mail just in time for Dad to check the mail that day. Luckily, he didn’t pay any attention to it and just laid the stack on the kitchen counter. We wrapped up a package with an image of the Daytona track in it and patiently waited for present time. To keep him from accidentally opening it earlier, it was kept hidden as the last present of the day.
He knew we were up to something 🙂
Daytona, here we come!!!
Dad was excited and we were all looking forward to a fun family trip and to get away from the cold to the Florida sunshine for a weekend 🙂
Stay tuned for pictures from the trip, it was so much fun!
