A Slidell boy got the surprise of the year this week when he was reunited with his grandparents for the first time in eight months.

According to his mother, 12-year-old Patrick's grandparents were both recently vaccinated against COVID-19 and decided to travel from Florida to visit him.

He didn't know they were going to be visiting and they surprised him on Tuesday right before one of his basketball games.

Patrick was just a little surprised and can be seen dropping the basketball and running to give his grandparents a hug.
