A soldier got an unforgettable homecoming on Tuesday when he surprised his father in Florida on his birthday with a little help from a restaurant, a family said.
Christopher Adams was coming home after being deployed in Germany, to the surprise of his father on his birthday, Adam’s wife, Courtney wrote in a Facebook post. She called the Texas Roadhouse in the near of Jacksonville and asked if they could book a 12-seater dining table for up to 6 hours for the celebration. The staff of the restaurant said that would “love” to host the special moment for the family.
But when they arrived at the restaurant, they had so much more than what they expected.
“Not only did they reserve us a table in the closed shutters so Daddy couldn’t see it if we happen to walk by the wrong window, the manager included on the homecoming of his personal phone for us,” Adams wrote on Facebook.
“The whole party, and they special ordered a cake just for Lee,” she added. A photo of the receipt showed the waiter also recorded “welcome home” message.
Adams said she came later than expected due to a terrible storm that snarled commute to work to the restaurant. The Adams said: “it was the best night ever.”
Adams’ shared photos and videos on Facebook, which had garnered more than 26,000 comments, and 13,000 shares on the Friday morning.
