Is it sad that I'm jealous of the travel adventures of a piece of cardboard?

Thanks to everyone involved for bringing us this trip report!

How fun I am sitting here laughing and my family want to know what is so funny. I just told them Flat Ben...my DH said what Big Ben? What happened to Big Ben. Man needs a hearing test or maybe I am laughing too much for him to understand.

Penny was actually looking for someone who would take custody for Flat Ben. I'll PM you tomorrow (probably from BeachClubDee) to make the arrangements.

Flat Ben has a couple of other engagements for MNSSHP, but I will be sending separate FBs for that.

I know- really empty! I have never been there at pre-opening, so I'm glad Flat Ben had that opportunity.

So glad the report is amusing you!

"Big Ben" has had lots of fun adventures this afternoon! I'll be posting those pictures in the morning.

Hilarious!!

My husband and I are going on a 10 day trip at the end of the month for the food and wine - and leaving my girls at home. They are so upset with us! The F&W is their favorite time to go - and they just can't believe we'll be eating escargots without them. We have joked that they need to make flat versions of themselves and we'll bring them along. I was originally thinking that we'd just make them do drawings and put a photo face on - but I love the picture you did of Ben! Is it an 8x10 with him cut out?? I am needing some details

I can't wait to follow along with Ben - and let me know if he'd like to go to the f&w with us - and our two flat children!

Got to say that I'm sure Ben will enjoy this trip more in a few years when he sits down and looks back on the pictures of his surrogate taking the trip for him. I like the fact that everyone else is having fun with this too. Thanks for sharing your trip with us Ben.

Glad you are enjoying this and thinking of doing the same thing! Do you really want another "kid" tagging along on your adult trip? But Ben LOVES to eat, he would be game for some escargot. Let's talk!

I had a picture of Ben from a trip this summer to the York Zoo (York's Wild Animal Kingdom). I cropped it and printed it on card stock, 8x10 size, as you suspected. Then cut out the picture. I mailed it to Penny and she laminated him and added the stick. Great touches!

I "made" the pin lanyard. It is just a piece of ribbon held together by the pin.

Your idea with the drawings and superimposed faces is great, too.

My family finally asked why my phone keeps pinging when I get the texts with the pictures. Ben loves the pictures so far. You should have seen the smile on his face when I showed him the picture with Teena!


More coming right up!

I loved the picture of Ben totally in one of the holes at the Canada photo op site. I can barely fit my head in that thing and here he was entirely in the hole!

I loved that pic. It totally made me laugh (well snort) out loud to see Flat Ben all alone in the totem. Love it!

Of course I can take another flat kid on my adult trip - with two already coming - what's another! Ben might like hanging out with an 11 year old and a 14 year old girl!

And I adore the picture of Ben having some tequila - who knew he'd get such adventures at such a young age!
