We drove 5 1/2 hours to Buffalo to take the Birthday Daddy out to supper and then drove home again.
At first he didn't believe that we were there (I called him right before he got off work). He thought we were playing a trick on him. When we finally convinced him that we were, indeed, sitting outside his hotel he practically flew over to meet us.
Ben was supposed to get candid shots of his surprise, but got caught up in the hugs and kisses and there really aren't any candid shots to share. But we have the pictures in our hearts forever and ever.
Next weekend we will explore the Buffalo area in greater detail, yesterday we just had time to love on our sweet Joe.
The very special birthday gift
