Flat Stanley's Vacation

My niece Brielle sent me a really fun letter with "Flat Stanley" inside. He is a little boy that was flattened by a blackboard. He was very helpful to everyone he met. He was tired from helping all those people and needed a vacation. His parents couldn't afford a plane ticket so they mailed him around the world on vacation.

Brielle sent me her Flat Stanley, so I got to show him around town. Below are a few of the 50 photos that went into his vacation scrapbook. He also faithfully wrote about each day of his 14 day vacation on post cards. Flat Stanley was a model guest. I hope someday to host more Flat Stanley vacations.

Flat Stanley went to see the temple. He can't wait to go inside someday.

Flat Stanley went to Red Robin. He was so happy to meet the Red Robin, who gave him a balloon.

Flat Stanley goes on an early Easter egg hunt. He wishes Brielle was there to help him find the eggs.

Flat Stanley finds a dog his size to ride. He didn't fall off once. He is quite a skilled rider.

Flat Stanley went to the park. His favorite thing to do was go down the slide. He was faster then any of the other kids.

Flat Stanley had fun playing Super Mario Brothers on the Wii. He almost beat the game.

Flat Stanley went to the movies. He saw Dr. Seuss The Lorax in 3D. It was so good that he is going to ask for it for his birthday.

Flat Stanley went to the museum and saw dinosaurs. He wasn't scared because they are extinct.

Flat Stanley did have one mishap while he was on vacation. He got his foot stuck in a piano. He was brave and didn't even cry.
