I hope Mr. Stanley enjoyed his time with us. I know the girls sure enjoyed their time with him!
A and B were all giggles when I introduced them to Flat Stanley before breakfast one morning. He was with us every waking moment the entire day...and the girls probably would have slept with him if I would have let them!
|Eating breakfast...they put Stanley in the middle between them.|
|Here's Baby A, getting acquainted with Stanley after breakfast.|
|After the girls ate breakfast, they decided Stanley was probably hungry. They built him a very nice chair with a tray.|
|Stanley gobbled up his grapes, broccoli, and artichoke (???).|
|Baby B read some books to Stanley. He was really fond of the Frog and Toad books.|
|After a morning of play, it was time for Stanley to take a nap. The girls built him a bed and gave him a bunny finger puppet, just his size, to keep him company.|
|That afternoon, we took Stanley to one of the hallmarks of our area, the National Corvette Museum. He loved all the sporty rides!|
|After looking around a bit, Stanley accompanied the girls for a snack at the Corvette Cafe, a '50's style diner.|
|He got all sorts of special treatment, even "hanging out" to welcome guests for a little while.|
|After our snack, Stanley scored the girls a backstage pass to see where they wash the cars before they bring them into the museum. It was literally a high-security area, but I guess Stanley looks like he can be trusted.|
|Stanley paused for a moment at the exit to play with the oversized gas tank / candy dispenser.|
|After our fun afternoon, we had to get back to reality with a trip to the grocery store. While the girls steered the cart, Stanley proved to be an expert list-holder.|
|The following day, the girls drew pictures of Stanley.|
|At last it was time to send Stanley home.|
Stanley literally kept the girls entertained the entire day! Thanks, Charlene, for inspiring so much fun. I know the girls will remember this for a long time!
