Valdosta, GA - Two brothers got a big surprise today from the last person they expected to see.. Their father.
Air force Sergeant Aaron Croot has been deployed the past seven months in Italy. He snuck up on his two sons at the Wild Adventures theme park today-- 4 year old James and 18 month old Jacob.
The family lives in Lakeland, Georgia.
Sergeant Croot has been gone 13 of the past 16 months on three different deployments. He's been waiting a long time to see his boys.
Sgt. Croot: "Yeah a long time... [holding son] I just don't want to let him go. I know he wants to ride the rides but i'm just going to have to hold him for a little while."
The Croot family spent the rest of the day riding the rides at Wild Adventures.
