When parents surprise their kids, the response usually falls along the spectrum of unbelievable excitement to utter disappointment. This army dad's homecoming definitely falls on the excited end.
North Carolina mom Gretchen Blanton captured this heartwarming video of her husband Chris coming home to surprise their sons after five months away with the U.S. Army. The little boys' happy dances say it all.
As the anticipation before the surprise builds, we especially love the moment of comic relief when Mom needs to help her Superman cape-clad son unlock the door.
