Auntie Terri came over with a surprise for Flat Stanley today.
“We’re having a party!” It’s Shay’s birthday and we’re going to have a BBQ today!”
“Two parties in two days?” Flat Stanley couldn’t contain his excitement. You know how he does it; he tucks his hands up under his arms like a chicken? Well he was doing that and flapping his wings.
“Cluck Cluck little hens, I’m the one at the party again!” His smile was so big as he went to feed the chickens today!
When everyone arrived, Flat Stanley got the drinks. The kids loved the Hi C as blue as the sea.
Flat Stanley was showing off his basketball skills, Joseph and Blain were showing him how it’s really done. SLAM DUNK! Joseph was 20 feet from the hoop, and in it went. This boy has skills.
After shooting some hoops, they sat on the log pile beside the barn and found a little ant. Joseph named the aunt Adrien. Blain explained to Nana that the ant was a boy ant and that’s why the ant wouldn’t climb on Nana’s finger. The ant then went to play hide and seek and snuck inside the crevice, hiding from everyone.
Then Nana came out with BUBBLES! You know how Nana loves her bubbles. Flat Stanley was playing with Promise and Blain. Promise would blow the bubbles and Blain would chase and POP them. POP POP POP.
Flat Stanley had a lot of fun blowing bubbles with Joseph and Blain too. This was a fun party!
Promise found the peony flowers on the property and her eyes lit up as bright as her smile. Nana let Flat Stanley pick one when he asked. The blooms are so delicate and pretty, just like Promise! Flat Stanley’s face was just a little red, can you see it. He was a little embarrassed, but loved the smile this flower brought to Promise’s face when he gave it to her.
But today was all about Shay. It’s Shay’s birthday! Shay is Briana’s friend. Flat Stanley LOVED hanging out with the birthday girl and the “teenagers” that were so cool on the log pile.
Look at their beautiful smiles! I hope this finds you smiling too! Please subscribe, so Nana can send you an email whenever a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted.
