Flat Stanley Photographs Maine

Flat Stanley woke up and the wind was whipping his hair to and fro.  He was happy to get into the lobby of the hotel without blowing away!  The waffles at the hotel are the best with fresh Maine blueberries!

“Maine is where we’re heading today,” Nana said, seeming to read his mind.  “Maine is known for their blueberry crops and they are delicious!” she said, solidifying his assumption.  She CAN read minds!

After a hearty breakfast, Nana and Papa drove about 20 minutes north to the Sarah Mildred Long bridge.  It’s a LONG bridge that takes you out of New Hampshire and into Maine.  Flat Stanley thought the bridge looked like four rocket ships rising into the sky.  So, of course he took a picture.

Once in Maine, Nana and Papa headed for the beach.

“Maine has beautiful beaches and I love to listen to the waves splashing against the shore,” Nana said.

She collected a few rocks for Papa and Flat Stanley took pictures.

They made their way all the way to York, where Nana was thrilled to see all of the old houses, antique shops and little art galleries.  It is a fun little town.

There’s also an historical lighthouse in Maine, well there are many of them; but we went to the one in York.

The Cape Neddick Light is a lighthouse in Cape Neddick, York, Maine.  Construction began on this historical lighthouse in 1879.

After a windy walk along the shore there, they got back in the car and Papa said he had a hankering for LOBSTER!

“When in Maine…”

When we pulled up the restaurant, Papa hopped out and found himself a lobster.

He literally, found himself a LOBSTER!

And guess what Nana found?  She found herself a Captain!

Captain Morgan!

It was a fun afternoon and the lobster plates were wonderful.

Flat Stanley had to use the mens room in the restaurant.  On his way, he looked up and found these buoys hanging from the ceiling.  You know he wanted to, you know he had to, do you think he did?

I think he did.  But he had the camera, so we’ll never know for sure.

He does keep us smiling.  I hope this finds you smiling too!  Enjoy your day!  Please subscribe so that Nana can send you a free smile in your email box every day!  Thank you for telling your friends about Flat Stanley’s Adventures!

 

 

 

Flat Stanley Explores Coastal New Hampshire

Nana made a last minute decision to take Papa and Flat Stanley on a quick getaway.  Papa had a rough day in Boston with his eye procedure yesterday, and he deserved a couple of days on the coast.

Flat Stanley heard “coast” and his mind immediately lept to roller coasters!  Flat Stanley LOVES roller coasters. Do you?

Well Nana wasn’t talking about roller coasters, she was talking about the New England seashore.

After driving for a couple of hours, they found their hotel in Plymouth, NH.  Not the same Plymouth we celebrate on Thanksgiving with the arrival of the pilgrims; that’s in Massachusetts Nana explained to Flat Stanley.

“Plymouth does have a lot of homes from the colonial times though, and one houses a photography museum.”

Becoming a photographer is another interest Flat Stanley would like to explore.

Flat Stanley was very disappointed when the photography museum was closed when they arrived.

“Closed for renovations until 2020” the sign read.

“That’s OK Flat Stanley, how about you be the photographer for our whole trip!” Nana said in an effort to cheer Flat Stanley.

Do you think it worked?  You bet it did!  Flat Stanley’s smile was huge as Nana handed him the camera.

He started right there at lunch!

Flat Stanley was having fun as the photographer.

There are a lot of colorful things to take pictures of on the coast.  Flat Stanley loved breathing in the salty air and it was a beautiful day!

After lunch, Nana drove along the coast and found a nice little harbor.

Flat Stanley even got a nice picture of Petey’s Lobster Shack where Petey brings in his bounty for the restaurant where thay just ate lunch.

After exploring the harbor and filling their nostrils with the smells of fish and salty air, they drove further up the coast.

Nana could hardly keep the car straight as they drove along the shore of Rye Beach in New Hampshire.  This is where they have big Victorian era mansions standing so stately, overlooking the shore.

She decided to stop for a snack along the rocky shoreline.  Flat Stanley grabbed his camera and bag of goldfish crackers and ran to climb up on the rocks.

He soon had seagulls and other shore birds gathering around to share his snack.  Flat Stanley is good at sharing.  The birds would get pretty close when they saw how friendly he was.

When the snacks were gone and they flew away, Flat Stanley sat smiling as he looked over his pictures of the day. I hope this finds you smiling too! Enjoy your day!

A Fun Day for Flat Stanley

Flat Stanley ran outside to feed the chickens and saw the workermen out working on Nana and Papa’s new house.  He was so excited to see the new siding going up.  Flat Stanley told Nana that he was thinking the neighbors may think they chose that dark green color for their new home.  ICK!

Instead the beautiful new siding was shining!

Sylvester the siding guy was working really hard to get the siding up before the rains came.  Flat Stanley and Nana both really loved the creamy color!

As he rounded the house, Flat Stanley saw his favorite buddy working on pouring the concrete floor in Nana and Papa’s new garage.

“Corrrando!!!!” Flat Stanley hollered out toward the concrete guy.  “Look at you, you almost let me miss out on all of the fun!” Flat Stanley said.

“Oh, I’d never do that,” Corando replied.  “Get over here and let me help you run this big concrete machine that Nana can’t remember the name of.

“You got it Flat Stanley?  It’s a rockin’ machine, so hold on tight.”

Flat Stanley held on tight as the machine slid like a surfboard across the smooth concrete floor.

“Oyyy Corando!!” Flat Stanley shouted as he skidded to a halt.

Flat Stanley then looked at the freshly poured and smoothed out concrete and well…you know Flat Stanley.  You know he wanted to, you know he had to; you know he DID.

Flat Stanley left his mark on the concrete floor.

See his little footprints there.

He’s got little feet and makes every one smile, even the big workermen.

I hope this finds you smiling too!

Flat Stanley Pumps Gas!

Flat Stanley and Nana entered the shopping center and Nana noticed her gas tank was getting low.

“Tomorrow we go to Boston, so we’d better gas up a bit here Flat Stanley,” Nana stated as she pulled up to the pump.

“I’ll help you Nana,” Flat Stanley said as he unstrapped his seatbelt and jumped out to help.

Flat Stanley was a big help and topped the tank off nicely.

“Can I clean your windows for you ma’am?” Flat Stanley chided in a joking way, but Nana took him up on the task and let him wash her windshield.

Flat Stanley dunked the squeegee sponge into the soapy water and washed all of the spring bugs that didn’t move out of Nana’s way, off of the windshield.  There were a lot of bugs!  When it was shiny clean, Flat Stanley got back in the car and they were off for more errands.

They picked up Papa’s mom, yes; Grandma T was treating us all to lunch today for an anniversary treat!  What a beautiful day.

This was followed by more card stores and shopping and then more shopping.  Flat Stanley loves how spry and lively Grandma T can hop and shuffle through the isles.

Flat Stanley didn’t have to hop and shuffle.  He found a driving cart and hopped on it!

Flat Stanley is quite the driver.  He was zoom zoom zooming around the store.

Flat Stanley got really excited in the bakery section.  He rode ahead and hid in the cupcakes.  When Nana walked past he did this “PPPSSSTTTTTTT…psssst.. hey… you know you want it…” sing song that made Nana laugh, but she shook her head and said no.

“But they have SPRINKLES!” Flat Stanley continued.

Nana really really wanted to, but she is trying to eat less sweets, so although she wanted to, although she had to, she didn’t.  She stayed strong.

Instead, she found the fruits and veggies and stocked up on fresh strawberries.  These are Papa’s favorite, so she smiled as she put them in her cart for him.

Flat Stanley loved the brightly colored sweet bell peppers and Nana was quick to say “YES!” to these.

When they entered the dairy section, Grandma T found some jalapeno cheese sticks and snuck them in her basket for Nana and Papa.  She knows how they love spicy treats.  It was very nice of her, and although Nana saw her do it and KNEW who they were for, she didn’t stop her, she just smiled a big smile as she raised her eyebrows in welcomed surprise.

Nana put a carton of what looked like milk in the cart, but when Flat Stanley looked closer he saw it said Almond Milk.

“How do they milk an almond,” Flat Stanley asked Nana.  She just laughed and laughed.  It’s been a great week of laughter for Nana.

I hope this finds you smiling too!  How do they milk an almond? .. still giggling.

Enjoy your day!!

 

 

 

 

Flat Stanley Goes to Fenway Park!

Nana and Papa are HUGE Boston Red Sox baseball fans.  They never miss seeing a game.  Their granddaughter Briana isn’t a big fan, but Nana is working on her.  A few times a week Nana will excitedly inform Briana of the highlights and her granddaughter will just shake her head and say, “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I don’t watch baseball.”  But Nana doesn’t give up.  “Someday…” she replies, “someday you’re going to LOVE Baseball!”

Flat Stanley was actually excited to hear they were going to Fenway Park to see a game LIVE!  Nana didn’t have to talk him into coming along!

“The Boston Red Sox are playing the Baltimore Orioles today.” Nana explained to Flat Stanley in the car.

“Which team is better?” Flat Stanley asked.

“Well usually, I’d always answer the Red Sox no matter what, but in this case, Baltimore really is about 15 games behind in wins.  The Red Sox are tied with the New York Yankees for first place in their division.”

As they entered the ballpark, Flat Stanley had his trusty catching glove on, just in case a ball came flying his way, hopefully off of Mookie Betts’ bat!  He loves watching the games at home with Nana and Papa and likes to call Mookie Betts, Moooooootts;  it’s his little nickname Flat Stanley gave him.

“Mookie has the most homeruns this year out of all players in the league!” Papa announced.  “He hit his 15th homerun last night!” Papa said smiling.

They found their seats near the bull pen.  This is where the pitchers practice their throwing.  It was an exciting place to sit.  Flat Stanley loved watching all the players practicing.

Flat Stanley decided to go for a little walk around the park.  When he made his way over to the dugout where all the batters sit waiting for their turn to hit the ball, he shouted out to Hanley and Mookie.

“Hey Mooots and Hanley, want to get a selfie with me?”

“Sure!, come on in here!” Mooots replied with his big ol’ smile.

A selfie to remember!

Flat Stanley made his way over to coach Cora, and started singing.  “Put me in coach, I’m ready to play, today…” Cora was eating his sunflower seeds and spitting the shells on the ground.

“You’re going to have to prove yourself in college first, little man.”  He informed him.

Flat Stanley was a little disappointed, and meandered back to his seat with Nana and Papa.  He was jumping up and down and cheering with everyone else in the stands when the Red Sox made another good play.

The game was an exciting one!  JD hit a homerun right over Flat Stanley’s head way up high curving around what Papa called the “Pesky Pole.”

“They call it the Pesky Pole,” Papa told him, “because Johnny Pesky curled a ball around it for a homerun in a very important game when I was a young boy.”

Flat Stanley looked up at the big yellow pole rising up into the sky and an idea to climb it came to mind.  You know he wanted to, you know he had to; you know he DID!

From way up high on the pole, Flat Stanley watched another ball go sailing into the crowd off of JD’s bat!  He hit TWO homeruns today, tying Mookie Betts for the most homeruns this season!  So now, the top two homerun hitters in all of major league baseball, play for the Red Sox!

Flat Stanley was cheering and supporting his team!  He loves baseball.

Flat Stanley carefully made his way down from the big yellow “Pesky Pole,” and snuck behind Manny Machado, who plays for the opposing team, the Baltimore Orioles.  Flat Stanley began heckling him. 

“Hey batter batter, heeyyyy batter batter, swing, swing and MISSSSS!!” Flat Stanley was laughing and then began singing a tune from The Lion King.  “Swing and miss Machado, oooh yeahhh… acumba Machado!”  And just like that he struck out!  It worked!

Flat Stanley loved the game and being on the side of the winning team makes it much more fun!  When the game ended with the score of 5 – 0 Boston, Flat Stanley made his way to the dugout once again to high five the winners!  He gave a big high five to Brock Holt.  Nana calls him “The Brock Star.”

It was a fun day at Fenway Park and everyone left with big smiles on their faces!  I hope this finds you smiling too!  Have a great week and subscribe so that Nana can send you an email whenever a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted.

 

Flat Stanley Helps the Window Crew

Flat Stanley enjoyed a relaxing morning at the house today.  He was hanging out with Shinzee the cat.

“Run, Shinzee, RUN!” Flat Stanley yelled as he threw her salmon treats as hard as he could out into the yard and just like a dog playing fetch, Shinzee would run to get them, and then return for more.

Shinzee was tired and all of the treats were gone.  So Flat Stanley was hanging out with her on the bench in Nana’s garden.

“A bit of rest is just what we need today, Shinzee”  It’s been a long week complete with friends, travel and warriors!

But then Flat Stanley heard the tap tap tap of the hammer going on next door and decided to go see what was going on.

“No rest for the weary!” Flat Stanley whispered as he smiled his lovely smile and rounded the big bush in front of the house.

When he saw the workermen putting windows in Nana and Papa’s new house across the drive Flat Stanley took off into a gallop run.

“Hey guys! Do you need any help today?”

“Oh we can always use the help of a strong young lad like yourself,” Wild Willy the Window Man said.

So Flat Stanley grabbed a hammer and started tap tap tapping the windows in place.  They let him run the glue gun around the edges and even frame in a window that wasn’t fitting just right.

The workermen were very nice and loved Flat Stanley’s help.

Flat Stanley worked with the level to make sure the window was situated just right so it will open and close for Nana and Papa with an easy slide.

When Wild Willy the Window Man was securing the last window in place, Flat Stanley ran inside and popped up on the other side of the glass with a surprising “Peek-a-Boo!!!” It made Wild Willy jump a bit, but he recovered quickly and shook his head at Flat Stanley.

“Haha, you got me! Now go grab that door.”

Flat Stanley got to secure Nana’s pretty front door in place.  He was very careful with the special panes of glass.

When Nana came out to see it, she had tears in her eyes.

“It’s fun to watch a house come together, but Flat Stanley, with windows and doors, the house is becoming a home!” she said.

Flat Stanley had enjoyed a busy day with the worker men.  He sat on the little porch with Nana for a few minutes and she talked about how she can’t wait for her rocking chair on this very porch.  It was an exciting day for them.  Nana couldn’t stop smiling.

I hope this finds you smiling too!  Enjoy your weekend!

 

Flat Stanley Goes to Cuba

I’m sure Flat Stanley has already been to Cuba. Did you know that Flat Stanley has been to 88 countries?  He’s a well traveled boy.  Today, Flat Stanley didn’t really go to Cuba, but we were all invited to a Cuban restaurant in Worcester, MA called Cafe Reyes.

Shinae and Chris came to pick Nana and Papa up.  They loved walking through Nana and Papa’s new house.

“Seeing the designs we helped you with on paper is one thing, but walking through the house as it’s coming to life is way cool!” Shinae said.  The ‘butler’s pantry’ was Shinae’s idea and her favorite part of the house too!

After the grand tour, Chris helped Nana, Shinae and Flat Stanley out of the newly framed  house. The stairs were taken away and it was quite a leap.

“Shaaaazaaahhhhm” Flat Stanley shouted as he flew from the edge of the doorway.  He flew like the wind down to the gravel where the concrete will be poured on the garage floor next week.

Shinae ran ahead of everyone and found her place on top of the heap of rocks and hollered, “I’m the Queen of the Mountain!!”

They all piled in Chris’ car and off they went to little Cuba!  Nana still had a few fingernails left when they arrived at the restaurant.  She’s a terrible back seat driver!

As they entered the restaurant, Chris and Flat Stanley were enjoying the vibrant artwork painted on the walls.

Then, Flat Stanley spotted the musical instruments that were just his size.  You know he wanted to, you know he had to, you know he DID!!  Flat Stanley climbed up to serenade the crowd of diners in the restaurant.

“Babalu Baby!!” Flat Stanley sung like Ricky Ricardo in the ‘I Love Lucy Show’ “Babaluuuuuu, for youuuuuuu!!”

Nana shook her head and helped Flat Stanley down before finding the perfect seat just below this great picture of a hen with lots of eggs.

The empenadas were so good Nana had to get a few to go, so she could share them with Auntie Terri and Briana.

Cafe Reyes helps young men and women in transition with housing and job development skills.  The food, the concept and the staff will definitely have us all coming back for more, and sharing this great treasure with others.  If you’re ever in Central Massachusetts, this place is worth a visit!

Flat Stanley had a huge smile on his face as we were leaving, he too wants to return, and SOON!  I hope this finds you smiling and that you enjoy a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for subscribing so Nana can send you a note when a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted.

 

 

Flat Stanley Rides the Storm Out

As Flat Stanley layed his head down to sleep.  His pillow needed a bit of fluffing up and Nana helped adjust his sheets just so.

“Ok, Flat Stanley, we’ll rise early tomorrow, so get a good night’s sleep.” Nana said after reading a bit.  “Nana’s making bullseye eggs for breakfast tomorrow.”

Flat Stanley smiled as Nana left the room, he likes when Nana cuts the hole in the center of the bread and breaks an egg inside.  She flips it so carefully, that the yolk stays whole and runny.  Then you use the circle of toast she grills in the pan to dip in the yolk.

Sleep didn’t come quickly for Flat Stanley.  He tossed and turned a bit and the rain was beating against his window.  Usually, this is a comforting sound and it puts him right to sleep, but tonight, his mind just kept wandering to far away places.

Of course he was thinking about his friends in Virginia and he smiled recalling the dolphin ride with Mermaid Alexa.  Dreams are such a wonderful thing.  He squeezed his eyes shut tight, trying to enter a really fun dream.

But then crash boom went the thunder, and lightning bolts lit up the sky outside of his bedroom window.  Flat Stanley sat straight up in bed and said.. “Nanahhhh,” but Nana had already gone downstairs and Flat Stanley knew he should be sleeping, so he placed the pillow over his head and tried to silence the thunder.

His mind then went to fourth of July celebrations.  You know when the sky lights up in vibrant colors of red, white and blue?  Flat Stanley pretended that the crack boom bam in the sky was fireworks.

He pictured himself with Alexa and her cousins.  They were sitting on a sandy beach in a circle around a BIG Firepit.  Each of them had a straightened coat hanger with a marshmallow on the end of the stick roasting and toasting as they turned the gooey goodness over the flames.

Flat Stanley accidentally caught his marshmallow on fire, and when he blew it out, it was as black as tar.  Flat Stanley slid the burned outer crust off and ate the yummy warm marshmallow inside.

His next marshmallow was perfectly brown like toast as he carefully kept the marshmallow above the flames.

BOOOOM!!!  Came another wicked thunder clap.  Flat Stanley held his pillow tightly over his head and pictured the beautiful fireworks in the sky with Alexa beside him.  Everyone clapped and cheered in excitement.

He took a deep breath and went back to his marshmallows.  He imagined Alexa handing him a graham cracker and piece of chocolate.  Flat Stanley snapped the graham cracker in half and then placed the piece of chocolate on one half of the graham cracker and then like a sandwich, he slid his perfectly toasted marshmallow off of the stick to complete his masterpiece S’more!

Want S’mores?  I do too now!

He imagined the creamy goodness as the storm seemed to settle down ouside and he found himself falling to sleep.

In the morning, Flat Stanley trotted downstairs to the smell of fresh eggs cooking.  BULLSEYES!!  yeah!!!  Flat Stanley was smiling, Nana was smiling too.  She knows that thunderstorms can sound very loud and she was proud of Flat Stanley for riding the storm out as he described how he did it.  I hope you’re smiling too and that when the next storm comes that you ride it out as bravely as Flat Stanley.

Happy Mother’s Day from Flat Stanley

Flat Stanley would like to wish all the mama’s, and those that care for the loves in their lives a big Happy Mother’s Day!

“Here’s a big cup of your favorite blueberry coffee with toast and pretty smelling lilac flowers that Briana picked for you!” Flat Stanley said with love in his voice and a bright smile on his face.

A big Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies out there with little loves in their care!

Auntie Terri came into the room singing “Happy Mother’s Day to youuuuu…” to Nana, and then Nana joined in, singing the same tune back to her.  “Happy Mother’s Day to Youuuuu…” they were singing and laughing together in the tune of the happy birthday song.

They made Flat Stanley smile as they hugged good wishes.

Nana was thinking about her own mom on this special day.

“Look at this picture of Nana as a little girl with my own mom,” Nana said.  Flat Stanley’s mouth opened wide.  It was hard to imagine Nana as a little girl in her mother’s arms.  But he recognized her smile right away.

Flat Stanley was happy when he heard Nana and Papa saying that we were all going out to lunch with GrandmaT, Auntie Terri and Briana!

When we pulled up to a bakery, Flat Stanley’s belly growled really loud and it made everyone in the car laugh!

We stepped inside the bakery and the smell of fresh cookies greeted you!  Yum!!  Nana let Flat Stanley know that he could pick out a treat, but first he had lunch to eat.  He and Briana both chose bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.  It was stacked so high, Flat Stanley could hardly get his mouth to stretch that wide!  But he did.  He ate every bite and then had a pastry!  It was filled with his favorite lemon filling.

Flat Stanley offered to take our picture as we stepped out of the car to give Mother’s day hugs to GrandmaT.  He got pictures of all the ladies.  Flat Stanley and Briana were really enjoying this day to celebrate the ladies in their life.

When we got home, Briana set the camera up in Nana’s living room and sat her mom in Nana’s big easy chair.  Auntie Terri wasn’t feeling well, but she smiled really big when Briana surprised her with concert tickets to see one of her favorite musicians, Chris Brown; LIVE in July!

Auntie Terri was so happy and filled with love for her daughter that had worked so hard to save up every dollar earned for months, in an effort to give her mom a Happy Mother’s Day gift.

GrandmaT kept putting her rolled up newspaper over her face because she thought Flat Stanley was holding the camera too close.  Nana quickly moved the newspaper away from her face, and Flat Stanley caught her beautiful smile!

Everyone was smiling and feeling the love!  I hope this finds you smiling too and a BIG Happy Mother’s Day!  **Don’t forget to make plans to visit if you’re missing your mom or grandma, you know they’re missing you too!**

 

 

 

 

Flat Stanley Goes to the Petting Zoo

Flat Stanley’s eyes were sparkling with excitement when Nana told him that we were taking him and Briana to the petting zoo.

“I don’t know what kind of animals will be at a petting zoo,” Flat Stanley said, “but I love all animals!  So this is going to be a fun day!”

We piled in the car and drove out of town to where the special petting zoo was being held by Klem’s in Spencer, MA.

*** If you’re local, check it out!  They’re there all weekend. ***

When we got out of the car, we were greeted with the smell of fresh hay and cotton candy!

“This is what I’m talking about!” Flat Stanley said as he smiled up at Nana.

Briana took Flat Stanley’s hand and they ran ahead of Nana and Papa to see the baby goats.  Oh she knows how badly Nana wants goats.

“I want screaming goats and fainting goats,” Nana said, as she and Papa caught up with them.  “When the screamers blat out their screams, the fainters faint like they’re playing dead!”

Flat Stanley and Briana decided they wanted to see that too!

There were food receptacles set up near every stall with the animal’s favorite treats.  They loved being fed.  Briana was a little skittish at first, but the goats showed her how it’s done.  They’re not shy!

Papa’s favorite was the baby emu.  She was so cute with her little feathers and long legs the same length as her neck!

“It looks like a walking squash,” Papa said.

“Imagine what they’ll look like when they’re fully grown.” Nana pondered to herself thinking of their long legs and neck rising much higher than her own.

Flat Stanley liked the Llamas, and as you can see, the llamas LOVED him!

Briana posed for a picture with the big Australian Cow.  It was tame and let Papa grab his horn.

Nana said she took this picture for Auntie Shana, Alexa’s mommy.  She said she was waiting for them to dance like the ones in Barbados!  But they were very still.  Flat Stanley thought they were two large rocks in the corner, until Nana pointed out their little legs protruding from under their tortoise shells.

The sheep were very hungry with their calls for food.

Can you make a sound like hungry sheep?

We kept returning to the Llama pen.  They were so friendly, and they loved being scratched and talked to.

Papa was having a nice little chat with Eliandra the Llama, when Flat Stanley came up to do a little photo shoot.  They all smiled for the camera, even Eliandra.  Can you see her smile?

Wait, here’s a close up.

Flat Stanley saw the ponies and wanted to ride!  Unfortunately, Briana said she didn’t want to, so we had to just watch the other kids.  After a bit, Flat Stanley agreed that going in a circle being held on to, was more for babies.

He wanted a lasso, and to be let loose in an arena. As he imagined this he accidentally shouted out “Giddy up and RIDE!” The toddlers on the ponies loved it! One boy raised an arm in the air playing along with him.

After a lot of fun with the animals, Briana was drawn to the smell of cotton candy.  Flat Stanley, Nana and Papa followed her to watch the man spin the sugar on a stick round and around, until it was bigger than her head!

Flat Stanley enjoyed the fun adventure and skipped to the car smiling.  I hope this finds you smiling too!  Enjoy a beautiful day and please subscribe so that Nana can send you a smile tomorrow!  Who doesn’t need smiles delivered every day?
