12-Year-Old Boy Is Overwhelmed with Joy in Airport Parking Lot
Thinking he was saying goodbye to his grandparents, this boy is overwhelmed when his father surprises him with a ticket to travel to Spain.
Sean McGrath was somber standing in the parking lot at the airport. His grandparents were preparing to leave for a trip to Spain and he was sad to see them go. While he was waiting, his father asked him to check the boarding passes on his grandmother’s phone for accuracy. Swipe once, hers is correct. Second swipe, Grandfather’s is correct. Then he swipes again – Surprise! That’s when Sean’s father confirms the surprise ticket.
“Have a nice time in Spain, Buddy!”
The boy is overwhelmed with emotion and instantly folds into his grandfather’s embrace with tears in his eyes.
His father hands him a pre-packed suitcase with a quick word of encouragement.
“Have fun, enjoy your holidays”
Sean asks through tears, “Really, seriously?”
After a few moments of stunned silence, Sean says “thank you” and begins to hug each family member with genuine appreciation. But he continues to pause, struggling to have the moment sink in.
Sean’s father repeats, “Enjoy your flight, Buddy!”
The boy asks again, “Am I REALLY goin’?”
Sean gets additional confirmation from his father that this isn’t a bad joke (and checking his suitcase to see if it’s really packed!). The now happy boy walks towards the airport with his grandparents with a huge smile on his face. This was the best surprise holiday trip!
