A Slidell boy was all smiles as the Louisiana State Police sent him and his family on a dream trip.

The Grant-A-Wish Program sent Ryan and his family on a Walt Disney Cruise last week. Troopers met the family at their residence in Slidell with a limousine, airline tickets, Disney Cruise boarding passes and breakfast.

The family received a red carpet send off at Louis Armstrong International Airport.

The fun began right away. Troopers say Ryan was "all smiles" while riding in the limousine with his family.

Throughout his trip, Ryan sent photos to the Louisiana State Police.

The Louisiana State Police Grant-A-Wish program is a nonprofit organization which serves as a tool to ease the strain and struggles that children with life threatening illnesses face on a daily basis.
