Dad Drives 1,000 Miles for Special Lunch with Daughter: 'She Deserved a Good Birthday'
Diana Segura Lerma, 19, didn’t know that her dad woke up at 3.30 a.m. to get on the road
Julio Cesar Segura wanted to surprise his daughter with a visit on her birthday.
Julio drove more than 11-hundred miles across Texas from El Paso to Austin and back, just so he could spend lunch with his daughter Diana Segura Lerma on her 19th birthday. He didn't tell her he was coming. Instead he told her that he ordered her favorite lunch from Chick-fil-A and have it delivered from UberEats.
So when Diana opened the door expecting to see the driver, she instead saw her father there with balloons, a happy birthday poster, and Chick-fil-A lunch.
The two enjoyed lunch while following social distancing guidelines. An hour and a half later, Julio hopped back in the car to head home. He told SWNS, "It was a lot of driving, [but he says he] was so happy on the way back."
