Default Abby's First Flight

I finally got my enthusiastic six year old granddaughter up for a flight. We have taxied around before, but mom and dad wanted to be there for the first real flight. She loves talking on the headsets. It was a bit bumpy (spring/summer afternoon is not my favorite time for flying in FL, first flights especially), but she had a great time on our short flight.

Strapping in:

ready to go:

taxiing back in, still smiling! (she had to borrow mom's sunglasses)

She is a cutie, that's for sure. Was that her first airplane ride?
