Talon and Renen...and Talon's backpack that will soon be traded.
Talon and Kai
While going through security, Talon began speaking with this couple.  After learning what Talon was doing and where he was headed, the gentleman in the cap handed Talon his own nice, expensive, sturdy backpack and traded it for the one that Talon had on his own back.  "You'll need a good one." He said.  Then the man turned to find our family up above, gave a big thumbs up and called out, "He'll do GREAT!"
