8-year-old Joshua was preparing to have his school photo taken when his soldier-dad decided to make the moment even more memorable. 

Army Corporal James Bass came home after spending months in Kuwait, away from his family. ABC reported that, as Joshua was posing for the school picture, his father snuck up behind him and photobombed the shot in an epic way.

Joshua had no clue until the photographer then showed him the picture he had just taken. The boy looked at the camera and was shocked to see his dad pulling a goofy jazz-hands pose in the background. At first, he was confused as to how his father showed up in the shot. It was obviously unexpected and it took him a second to figure it out. 

Finally, Joshua was asked by the cameraman to look behind him. The third-grader turned around and the joy he felt was evident on his face as he saw James standing there all decked up in his military uniform.

The boy, of course, leaped into his father's arms in sheer happiness. Fortunately, this incredible moment was captured on camera.
