No matter how many stories like this I see, they never get old!
Jacob Thomas is a United States Air Force technical sergeant who has been deployed in Kuwait since January. But, he was able to fly home early and surprise his four kids during a VIP experience at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
Mom, Kristin Thomas, is also on active duty but was able to keep the early homecoming a secret by telling the kids, Jacob Jr., 15, Jordyn, 10, Riley, 7, and 19-month-old Kayden that they won a VIP package to the theme park.
“It was amazing,” she told KCRA. “[I] tried to videotape it myself but I couldn’t because they were crying so much and when they cry, I cry.”
