Tori and husband Zach Roloff shared some future memories as the whole family boarded a plane for summer vacation.

In addition to Jackson, the reality stars are also parents to Lilah, 3, and Josiah, 1.

Tori has included several photos and videos from the beginning of her journey Instagram stories.

Among them were shots of the family sitting in their seats with big smiles as they jetted off.

In one video, Tori followed Jackson and Lilah as they walked down the plane’s long boarding tube.

Jackson was wearing a backpack and had a blanket wrapped around his shoulders.

Lilah was right next to him, carrying two Frozen dolls.

As she walked, Lilah reassured her mother that she would not get sick during the flight.

“Yeah, don’t throw up on the plane,” Tori agreed. “That would be bad.”

Both Lilah and Jackson showed off their long, quick strides as they rushed down the ramp.


The sight helped allay the elementary school student’s worries, especially after a video was posted just days before showing Jackson visiting Josiah in his crib while the young tot giggles to himself.

The clip showed how bent Jackson’s legs still are, despite having undergone painful surgery to straighten them.

Many fans noticed Jackson’s gait and were concerned.

“I’m so sorry for Jackson. It looks like the surgery didn’t actually work,” the original Reddit poster read.

“I hope there’s still something they can do to help him walk!” Hopefully he’s not in pain.”

“The poor boy literally walks on the sides of his feet. It actually looks worse now than it did before his surgery. It just looks really painful,” wrote one fan.

Another replied: “This will screw up his feet.”

“Yeah, that’s just heartbreaking to watch,” admitted a third.


It’s been two years since Jackson had to undergo surgery to alleviate his condition.

Tori and her husband Zach, 33, said at the time that Jackson’s surgery would not necessarily guarantee an easy fix.

In early 2022, Tori explained the procedure on Instagram: “He had plates placed on his growth plates. Nothing changed immediately.”

“Hopefully as his legs grow they will straighten out and we can avoid more invasive surgery.”

In June, she also stated, “We won’t know in a few years how successful the surgery was as this is something that happens slowly and over time.”

In November, Zach announced that they still hadn’t seen conclusive results after the surgery.

When asked about Jackson during a Q&A session with his fans, he shared, “He’s good. It’s tough because the screws in his legs help straighten the leg as he grows.”

“Well, for him it might grow [an] inches per year, so it’s hard to spot and won’t be obvious for a while. [An] On an average person having the same surgery, you would notice the difference much quicker.
