Dylan peeked around the corner and grinned. He wanted to sneak up on his daddy. He crouched down low and snuck down the hall. Tip, tip, tippy toe, and that is how Dylan snuck up on his daddy—always. Each time he tried to sneak up on his daddy, there would be something that made a sound. He remembered that his shoes were squeaky and he went back to the kitchen to remove them. He again snuck down the hall and at that moment dust tickled his nose and he sneezed. Alivia also wanted to sneak with him and they both snuck down the hall. Would they be able to surprise their daddy?
