Surprise reunion for 2 Cottage Grove kids after fire truck ride to school

Monday morning couldn't get any better for Cottage Grove, Minn. siblings Tomas, Gabriel and Eliana Araujo. The kids rode to school in a fire truck, then Tomas and Gabriel had a surprise reunion with their father, who returned home from a year-long Kuwait deployment 27 days early.

The kids won a ride to school on a fire truck at the recent Pine Hill Elementary PTA carnival. When Sandra Araujo learned their father, Gabriel Timp, would be coming back to Minnesota early, she arranged the special ride to coincide with a surprise reunion.

Welcome home Gabriel!
