"Welcome to Jurassic Park!" Flat Harry-Ben




Use your wand! He's right behind you!




Flat Harry-Ben must taste good!




At least this one is only bones.




Doing a Data Scan.



Hmmm. Dino and Flat Harry-Ben combo of DNA?





Not sure if my hand is quite large enough!




Hope this doesn't hurt!




Stay away from the eggs!




Where are these things coming from???



Next Up: Flat in the Hat

Flat in the Hat








Unless...




I hope Flat Harry-Ben enjoys the High in the Sky Trolley more than real Ben (and his brother) did:






I'll also hijack my own trip report (can you do that) to post my very favorite installment I ever wrote for a trip report. From my Welcome Foolish Muggles report,

Oh, the Places we Didn't Go!


A couple from The Lost Continent:






Next up: "You're a Wizard, Flat Harry-Ben"

My thoughts of the day...

I don't like the name "Flat Harry-Ben" because every time I read it I hear "Flat Hairy Ben" and it creeps me out a bit.

I LOVE the title "Flat in the Hat".

And, as I'm sure you knew... Love the picture of your real boys riding the trolley and displaying their thoughts for all to see.

Dee, Can I just tell you how much I enjoy all of your efforts to bring us these trip reports! Also, thank you to all of the folks that you have recruited to take Flat Ben along on their trips. Everyone is doing such a great job!!

Flat Ben has arrived at our household this weekend. He is excited to get traveling, but I told him he still has to wait.

Yeah, same thought as I type Flat Harry-Ben. I'll use abbreviations from now on. FHB.

Yup, knew that you would appreciate the picture of my boys on the trolley.

Thanks so much for your kind words of encouragement. I can't believe how busy Flat Ben is! I still have TONS of pictures to post from AnjieNet's trip, and I don't even have them all yet, and he has two more in the hopper, plus a bonus cruise.

I agree- everyone is blowing me away with their humor and creativity!

Me too!

All of the pictures are really fun and creative, but I especially love the characters' reactions.

Especially in the Universal batch which is coming soon.

Flat Ben's Got Character(s)












FB, the movie star:




Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe have a bit of a crush on Flat Ben:






Scooby Doo was excited about Flat Ben and AnjieNet's daughter's Scooby Doo shirt




A visit with the inhabitants of Bikini Bottom. Spongebob ran around with FB for over a minute before posing for photos. Squidward was not impressed. But FB considered a sovenir purchase after the encounter:












Hola!

A visit with Dora and flower in Diego's brigade






A little light reading with Curious George






Woodpeckers






FB and EB:

Flat Ben Gets His Ride On at US!





A Long Time Ago
In a Kingdom
Far, Far Away!









The Simpsons:
I will not make a fake representation of my son
I will not make a fake representation of my son
I will not make a fake representation of my son

Bart couldn't stop laughing and holding his stomach when meeting FB.

FB enjoyed The Simpsons ride so much he went on 3 times!!!

He was so hungry afterwards, he took a bite from Chief Wiggum's donut.








FB enjoyed The Mummy but thought the wait was waaaayyyyy too long:




Ready for a little Mayhem with the Minions:










Flat Ben Phone Home!






Poor FB was too short to ride Rip, Ride, Rocket so he had to wait in the Child Swap room




"Fun" in San Francisco and Amity:











What a Disaster! and Twister and Shout!







Waiting for the Cinematic Spectacular at the end of the night
