    'P.S. It is daddy’s BIRTHDAY!' she wrote in blue crayon. 'P.P.S. It is summer, you know.'
    Daniel Shiplacoff, her father’s boss, saw the letter and responded: 'Dear Katie, Thank you for your thoughtful note and request.
    'Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people across the globe.
    'On the occasion of his Birthday, and recognizing the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time. Enjoy!'

    Pictures of the letters were shared on Imgur and have gone viral. The identities of the girl and her dad have not been revealed.
