It made me laugh, and so I told my husband about it. He just rolled his eyes. I don't think he is as in to the FB trip report as I am!
I loved the way Jen set up the shots!

Sorry that your DH is not quite as amused about this as you and I are. Maybe he will feel differently if FB accompanies you on a future trip. I'm sure the teen would not be mortified!

Cruzin' Flat Ben with TeenaS and Katesdad

Ben was invited to accompany my favorite CM TeenaS and her husband Bob on their cruise on the Fantasty this past week. Joining them were Teena and Bob's good friends Fred and Lois. As a bonus, frequent poster to the BC/YC FAQ board, Katesdad, and his wife were on the same cruise and were able to arrange seating together at the nightly dinners.



All Aboard!










Come, Sailaway!













In the Cabin:







I'm sure they are toasting with grape juice!


Dinner:










Castaway Cay:

I think FB would be a good addition for a future trip with our family (whenever that might be). Just to be sure it wouldn't be too much trouble, maybe I should ask my teen if he would like to take FB to school one day as practice.


Love the cruise pics. Totally jealous that FB got to enjoy drinks and meals with Teena while sailing across the seas.

It has been awhile since I have had a chance to update you all on Flat Ben's escapades at Disney. In the next couple of posts, I will share the pictures from jenseib's trip, before FB ungratefully ding-dong-ditched her family while at Disney!

Hopefully I'll get a chance to post the pictures from StephH's family by the end of the week.

Flat Ben with Jenseib and family at Disney

Animal Kingdom Lodge:












MNSSHP
One picture to show he was there, then everyone was having too much fun...





After the party, everyone was exhausted!







Claire did not know this picture was taken and cracked up when she saw it. Penelope was not amused.

Cruising with Flat Ben: A Dream or A Nightmare?

The Dream:











Watching the show:




Naughty FB! That's a chair in the adult only part of the ship!




Ping Pong, anyone?




Mmmm... Mickey Bar! This is how you can tell the difference between FB and real Ben. Ben's shirt would be covered in chocolate!




Pirate Night:







Nassau:







Ardastra Gardens:











Castaway Cay:

Glad you liked the posts!

Thanks again for sharing your trip with Flat Ben!

If you find some more, I'll add them here.

************************************************** *****************************************

Here is the last batch of pictures from jenseib:


At Hollywood Studios:







Tangled:





Last Known Sightings:





(at Beach Club)






It was right around this time that Flat Ben went missing. And now it all makes sense! All of Flat Ben's caretakers have been wonderful (well, except maybe for the one who let him a little too close to the tiger) but I think once FB arrived at the Beach Club, he knew that he needed to reconnect with his real mom, Flat Dee, who was last seen in the Solarium at the BC/YC FAQ meet & greet this past summer. It warms my heart to think of the two of them, in permanent residence, at their beloved resort.

The End

(or Is it the Beginning...)

I am continually amazed by what people think of to do with an 8 inch high, laminated traveler!

By the way-

I just posted the last of Jenseib's photos into a previous post- Post 220- along with an explanation about what I think happened to this version of FB.
