They're Headed to Florida! (Photostory)
It's the day after Christmas and Rod, Danielle, and the kids are headed to Orlando, Florida to visit Danielle's mom. While there, they will pay a visit to DisneyWorld.
It's almost time to go. The plane is taking off in 3 1/2 hours. They've planned to get there at least 2 hours ahead to make sure there aren't any problems.
The bags are packed and sitting near the door. There's Jacob in the background playing with one of his trucks he got for Christmas.
"Dad, have you ever been to DisneyWorld?" (Nicole)
"No, but I've heard it's a wonderful place." (Rod)
"Mom, are you almost ready? I think it's time for us to leave." (Julian)
"Almost, Julian. I'm just making sure I didn't forget anything." (Danielle)
"How about you guys help me take the bags to the car?" (Rod)
"Then we're leaving?" (Julian)
"Yes. Then we're headed to the airport." (Rod)
"Before you do that, go to the bathroom, so you won't have to go on the way to the airport. Nicole, you should go, too." (Danielle)
"But I don't have to go." (Julian)
"Go anyway." (Danielle)
"Come on, Julian. Let's go." (Nicole)
"No-oh-oh. I don't wanna go." (Julian, laughing)
"Honey, I'm going to take the bags to the car." (Rod)
"We should be ready when you return." (Danielle)
The family arrived to the airport on schedule. After a little over an hour in the terminal, they are now set to board the plane.
The stewardess is busy talking to the pilots.
"Ouch, Jacob. That's my nose." (Nicole)
Jacob starts giggling.
"Mom, I'm going to put my suitcase over there." (Julian)
"You have to wait for the stewardess. Here she comes." (Danielle)
"Welcome aboard. Sorry to keep you waiting." (Stewardess)
"Come this way. I'll show you to your seats. You can leave the bags. I will take care of them." (Stewardess)
"Here you are." (Stewardess)
"Oooh, I'm going to sit near the window." (Julian)
"Nicole, you sit next to Julian." (Danielle)
"Nicole, here's your backpack." (Rod)
"Thanks, Dad." (Nicole)
The Stewardess heads back to put the bags away.
"Alright, Jacob. Let's get you out of this hat and sweater." (Danielle)
"I need to call Mom. I told her I would call when we were about to take off." (Danielle)
"Call Mom." (Danielle)
"Hello?" (Danielle's mom)
"Hi, Mom. We just got on the plane. It should be taking off in the next ten minutes." (Danielle)
"Mommy, I want to talk to Grandma." (Julian)
"I think we are arriving at gate 42, but we'll meet you at baggage claim. We can't wait to see you! We'll see you in a couple hours." (Danielle)
"Mom, why didn't you let me speak to her?" (Julian)
"Because we are on the plane and we're not supposed to be on the phone. You will see her real soon, and you can talk to her in person." (Danielle)
