Flat Stanley...

A good friend of ours in Mississippi sent us Flat Stanley for a visit.  So today we took him to a few of our favorite spots around town.  We love these saguaros and had to take him there (Matthew's holding him).

Flat Stanley isn't in this pic, but I just love palo verde trees and had to get a pick of my boys under this one in full bloom.  

Next stop was our family's favorite park, the Riperian Preserve.  It's a preserve for birds and has about 7 ponds (reclaimed water) and the prettiest birds.  And right now you can spot lots of baby ducks.  So we stopped on the bridge so Flat Stanley could see the turtles and ducklings.

And our last stop, a must at this time of year (already in the 90's), the water play fountain to cool down.  Thanks for coming for a visit Flat Stanley!  Now we'll send you back to Mississippi where it might be a little cooler, but a lot more humid.

I'd like to pretend to know what the heck you are talking about but I have no idea. What is, who is Flat Stanley? Sounds like fun whoever he is.

He's a character from a book. He was flattened somehow, but now he can just be put in an envelope and mailed all over the world. Schools all over do it, I guess. Students send him out to people they know in other places, so that they can learn a little about those places.
