Is that a Minnie Cinderella dress? Cute!

Hayley didn't miss the opportunity to bust out the bunny ears over Nathan's head, did she?

The kids love giving each other bunny ears! I can remember doing that as a kid and thinking it was the funniest thing in the world

Hayley is in love with her Minnie Cinderella Dress and wants to wear it to school! I told her after the Make A Wish Trip she can wear it whenever she wants!

I had posted a question on the Wish Tripper thread about airlines waiving fees and got the answer from Air Tran.

I e-mailed them and they sent me back a very nice and quick reply. They said that baggage fees are waived for Wish families (so that will save us some money that can go towards souvenirs!)

I had also inquired about whether they could move us to business class (their first class which two by two more comfy, larger seats). I check the online system and no one has purchased the business class seats yet and there are 10. They said to inquire when we check in at the airport and that if they were still available that we could have them

I also asked about Hayley and Nathan meeting the captain and seeing the cockpit. Figured while I was at it, might as well as for everything, right? She said that would depend on the captain and the crew, but again, to ask them when we are at our boarding gate!

So hopefully we will get some extra

Just wanted to share this so that those of you following my PTR and going on future wish trips would know that you might want to e-mail your airline ahead of time and see if you can get any of these things done for your wish child!!

Dance to the petals on the streams running down,
they're there for you singing, just to lose that frown.
Dance from the song you feel beat within your heart,
it beats within you naturally loving from the start.

That is awesome news. We spent $200 the last time on baggage fees. I will be calling this time.
Here's some for the other 2.

That is awesome that Airtran will wave the fees! We are flying on Southwest so our bags fly free!

I think since you were on a roll and you had them on the phone you should of asked if the kids could actually fly the plane.

I'm just subbing on and really enjoying your ptr! You have two gorgeous children and I just love the photos of them opening their Big Give gifts - so many beautiful creative items! I think you are totally right in taking Hayley now while she is doing well and happy, make the most of today and enjoy the magic as a family. Having had four years of ups and downs with my transplant baby I know that I look at life so differently and believe in taking the magic today as who know what tomorrow brings.

Hey I never thought of that

I actually e-mailed them and that way I have it in writing. Printed it off and will take it with us along with all of my other information I have accumulated.
