It just so happens that the Branson Airport IS a Bass Pro Shop, so there were certainly entertaining things to look at too! They had a waterfall with a water wheel, and a bridge going over the little river to a cafe. Elias' favorite part was the koi in the fish pond, though! He stared at them for a LONG time!

Then we got on the plane and he loved absolutely every minute. So proud of my high-flier!
|He of course brought along his trusty companions, Mrs. B and Buster, whose presence kept him at ease the whole time.|
|He was excited when the flight attendant gave him a pair of wings to wear! He wore them the whole time and wouldn't take them off until we got to Aunt Jessica's house!|
|Playing with trains on the tray table was a favorite activity while flying. The only problem came when we started our descent and had to put all tray tables in a locked and upright position!|
Our plane was small enough that we were the only two seats on our side of the aisle, and that was great because I could put him at the window and then keep him corralled! He wasn't wild, though, and was content to just play in his seat the whole time. He loved looking out the window, especially during takeoff and landing, and it was neat for me to see it through his new eyes too! So thankful for the opportunity to do this with him and make the trip to visit family.
