Love this. It is Flat Ben's growth chart from trip to trip.

I guess it could be his growth chart, but there hasn't been much change in a couple of week's time!

Actually, we will see how Flat Ben measures up in the next installment...

Flat Ben joins StephH's family at the Yacht Club, Dec 1-8

'Twas a night on vacation, while prowling the hall
Steph H and her boys heard a tiny voice call


"I'm lost and I'm lonely. I'm looking for Teena.
Can you help me? Please! Have you guys seen ha?

(remember, Flat Ben is from Boston and we don't have "r"s heah)

"Can we keep him?" The boys asked their mom with a plea!
"Of course! This is Flat Ben and his mom is Flat Dee"


So off to the Yacht Club the happy group went
And here are the pictures Steph H kindly sent:




A little first day magic! As the family was entering the International Gateway on their first afternoon, a kind soul asked them if they would like 4 Fast Passes to Soarin'

Score!




Here is Flat Ben with Steph's favorite




Now we see how Flat Ben measures up against Belle's Growth Chart




Cooling down with a Dole Whip Float:




Flat Ben is really digging Animal Kingdom




The Force is strong with these boys!




A Magical Moment- Look who was selected as Captain's of the Day at the Yacht Club!




Take Me to the (Lazy) River





Next up: Flat Ben takes a little detour to the Motor City!

Yes, I enjoyed all of these pictures, too. Steph was actually really good about sending me these in real time (usually day of) so I felt badly that it took me so long to post the update.

That is a fun picture. But I believe it came with a price... This version of Flat Ben did not prove as waterproof as previous incarnations. I think there was some leakage!

Steph's family also considered staging a rescue with the lifeguards, but then decided it was probably wise to let them do their real job of keeping actual kids safe!

Thank you so much for posting these, Dee!! Just looking at them again makes me smile all over again. We had SO much fun with Ben!

And you'll be happy to know that he dried out pretty well. A little discoloration, but my oldest decided we would call it a sunburn. He is packed away in our bags and who knows...you might see a shot of him at a hockey tournament soon!

Thanks again--what a great addition he made to our trip!

I'm so glad to hear you had fun with Flat Ben! I really loved when you told me your DH was getting into it, too.

Too funny about the sunburn.

I still need post the pictures you sent me from Detroit.

Flat Ben may be quiet for a bit. A friend of mine had him at DW last week, but I haven't heard if she took any/many pictures, then he has a trip in Jan and one in April.

Thanks for checking in on Flat Ben's adventures. Things have been very quiet for him over the Christmas break. I believe he will be having some fun in January though, so stay tuned!

I believe FB is in the World as we speak, enjoying the company of pixarmom and her family.

After that he has an engagement in April (the trip kind, not the marrying kind).

Hopefully we will see some updates soon.

I don't think we are ready to see FB get married yet.

Flat Ben Goes to Mexico

Well, I'm sad to say that real Ben still has not made it to Disney World in the past year.
But try not to feel too badly for him. Real Ben did just spend 6 days in Mexico.

Flat Ben tagged along- here are some of his mis-adventures:


Ready for Takeoff:




A Little Light Reading:




Chillin' in a hammock:




Pool Time:



Flat Ben may have been accidentally dropped into the water during the filming of this photo.
Subsequent photos will show that Flat Ben has "the runs".
Fortunately, not the Montezuma's revenge type, however.


Mayan Statue:



Mayan Ventriloquist:




These palm trees are just my size:




Life's A Beach:






Let's go sailing:




Oh, Oh!




How about a ride on a jet ski?




Or Parasailing?




A little shopping:










Flat Ben at Xplor Zipline Park:




Real Ben at Xplor:




Finz Up! At Margaritaville at the Cancun airport:
