“My Favorite Part was the Airplane”

Yesterday, our family returned from a week-long trip to Utah.

There were many great parts – a surprise visit with Bethany and her family, Bart’s marathon, a birthday BBQ, attending Women’s Conference with my mom, and spending time with the cousins.

On our way to the airport, we had a little conversation about our trip, and I asked Ella what her favorite part had been. Without a moment’s hesitation, she replied, “Flying on the airplane.”

I shouldn’t have been surprised. She’s been talking about the airplane ride for MONTHS, ever since we booked the flight.

She’s been particularly enamored with the fact that they give you soda on the plane. Truly, there is nothing Ella loves more than soda. 
Here is a little collection of pictures and videos in Disney’s app, Story, detailing our trip from the airport parking lot all the way until we arrived in Utah (if you listen closely at the end, you’ll hear Ella sing, “I’m done with taking pictures”):

    N still talks about the plane to Texas on a mostly-daily basis. Four months later. (Although he, like me, loathes soda – he calls it spicy water and makes a terrific sour face.)

    So cute. Is this your first time creating a story app?
