There is something just so incredibly touching about those videos of military moms and dads returning home and surprising their families. And the ones that really get me? The clips where the returning soldiers lovingly shock their young children with their homecoming.
One such video recently went viral and it’s an adorable one. A little boy – dressed up in his Captain America costume – answered the door and who was there? Why Captain America himself! Well sort of..it was – in fact – his military dad returning from Afghanistan just in time to celebrate his birthday (a couple days late). When Captain America takes off his mask, his son Cole is given quite a b-day surprise to discover it’s his dad. Hugs and sweetness ensue.
But that wasn’t the only surprise for this pint-sized Captain America. The family was flown to New York City to attend the east coast premiere of The Avengers. Five-year-old Cole stole the show on the red carpet adorned in his full Captain America costume. He posed for the cameras, smiled big and appeared to love every single second of his big night.
Check out the video of the Cole, his brother Chase and their hero dad right here:
