Boys says goodbye to grandparents at airport, then loses it when he sees third boarding pass.

12-year-old Sean McGrath was at Shannon Airport in Ireland to drop his grandparents off. He was saying goodbye to them when his dad Colum asked Sean’s grandma to give him her phone for a second, asking him to check the boarding passes for her.

Like any teen, Sean expertly scrolled through the phone, bringing up his grandparents’ tickets on an app. As Sean swiped through the boarding passes, Colum read aloud the name of Sean’s grandparents.

As Sean swiped, though, he discovered an extra boarding pass. As he read his own name, he realized his whole family had planned a wonderful surprise for him: a trip to Spain with his grandparents.

Watch Sean’s surprise below, and his touching reaction to his family’s generosity and love…
