      A birthday to remember

      On Saturday, five-year-old Weston Wood got the surprise of a lifetime when his Dad, who's in the Air Force showed up at his birthday party after not seeing his son for eight months.

      Staff Sergeant Steve Wood has been stationed in South Korea and was able to get time off so instead of coming home the old fashion way, instead he decided to make the entrance his children wouldn't ever forget.

      Staff Sergeant Steve Wood says, "this is probably the happiest day of my life other than my kids births."

      His wife Blaire Wood says, "I'm ecstatic that my family is full again. Seeing a smile on my kids face is the best thing in the world."

      The Wood family lives in Leesburg.

      Staff Sergeant Wood will be in town with his entire family for one month.
