We all love those happy stories where a parent in the military comes back from overseas and surprises their loved ones... Especially when it happens right here in our back yard!

Sadie Black was celebrating her 8th birthday and her first ever honor roll on friday morning at her school Riverside Elementary. Her Father Aaron Blake according to KSLA had been overseas in Qatar with the Air Force for the past 6 months.

Aaron arrived just in time to the assembly to give Sadie her honor roll certificate! "6 months is a long time in child years and memories I've missed out on. And just being home. Is just great," Aaron Blake told KSLA.

Sadie knew her dad was coming home soon but had no idea it'd be this soon so the surprise went great. This is a birthday that Sadie and her dad will never forget!
