That picture with the totems in Canada is definitely a winner! Glad it made you both laugh!

OK then- I'll PM you later this morning to figure out how we want to do this. I think the original Flat Ben may be occupied during your trip, but I could either email you another copy (which you would have to print) or I could snail mail a laminated version to you. It didn't occur to me to laminate FB or attach him to a paint stirrer- That was Penny's touch!

BTW- Flat Ben can be customized, so if you have any special requests, let me know.


Yes, Flat Ben is certainly getting into some adventures that may not necessarily be "Mommy-approved". In the pictures I am about to post he is getting picked up by chicks all over Hollywood Studios!

Tuesday Sept 4: Hanging at Hollywood Studios and the BC resort

Today, Flat Ben and Penny had some fun at Hollywood Studios:





Getting picked up by a cute girl at Star Tours and browsing at the gift shop:









Getting picked up by more cute chicks!




Mom's Lunch Spot- if you are following along on MY trip report, you know this is near the little corner where I escaped the teens (and chaperones) for a lovely solo lunch. My exact spot was occupied by birds, however.




Hanging out with some other stiffs at the resort:







Ready for the Rain in my fashionable Baggie Poncho!

Wed Sept 5: Animal Kingdom

The day started off kind of rough. Flat Ben was misplaced and a trip to the Lost Child station was necessary

"He is 8 inches tall, wearing a white t-shirt, khaki shorts and a deer pin and he is very, very thin. Oh, and there is a large stick attached to his but... back"





After reuniting Flat Ben with Penny, all was good!







Spot the critter in this picture. Do you see it?





Sporting a Spiffy New Pin:

MOM!!!! Stop talking about the GIRLS!!!!!!!! You're embarrassing him!!

I loved the lost flat Ben. AND I'm surprised the monkeys didn't grab him and run off. I'm sure he might have enjoyed that!

Penny you and Mr. Penny are doing a great job!!

~NM
PS. tell the girls to write their digits on the back of Flat Ben in sharpie so he can make some calls when he gets back!

I agree Penny and Jim are doing an excellent job!

Yeah, Ben (real or flat) isn't really interested in girls yet, but I remember a conversation when I bringing him and some friends home from a birthday party in 2nd Grade.

Ben "I have a girlfriend"

Friend "Who?"

Ben "Brie. She just doesn't know it."

Mom's Thought Bubble: "Um, Ben. That's called stalking!"

Thursday Sept 6

Flat Ben spent the day Pin Trading with Penny.

Now he's hooked!

Let's hope this new habit won't leave his mother's wallet "flat"


Central NJ Pin breakfast- rumor has it the food and speakers were good.




Figment Lover:




More Trading Fun:

Last Days of Adventure with Penny and Jim:





Flat Ben with DisneyPapa




More Pin Trading:












Thank you chaoscent (Penny & Jim) for showing Flat Ben a really great time around the World, introducing him to some hard-core pin trading (although it appears he only made one trade) and for sharing your precious vacation time with him.


Next up: Cindydare and her family will be showing Flat Ben a good time.
