Three year old Bridget Carr was excited to see the giant birthday present. She carefully peeled back the festive wrapping, opened the flaps on the huge box and squealed as her father, Joshua Carr popped out.
Carr was home from his second deployment in Afghanistan, and chose this way to surprise the birthday girl. His family was initially afraid Bridget would be scared when daddy popped out of the box, but clearly - that didn't happen.
Her delighted reaction was captured in this you tube video. The surprise happened last September, bur Carr says his daughter still talks about it sometimes :" Remember when you were in a box and you surprised me?'"
