Our niece Honey sent us her “Flat Traveler” last week---the newer version of Flat Stanley, made by the sender in her own self-portrait.
We were asked to make her clothing “to fit our climate and activities,” and so Sweetpea and her Mama and I sat down on Saturday and cooked her up a tee-ninecy wardrobe to befit some of the places we wanted to take her, as well as a few outfits just to represent things in our state.
She wore her little parka to make a snowman in our backyard.
As well as to bundle up warm for the FREEZING winds of downtown on the circle for a tour of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument:
Our wonderful Symphony Hall (wish it had been evening, for it’s splendiferous with all the marquee lights).
See how cold it was?---the buffalo fountain-spouts are frozen. We were just trying to keep our noses from freezing in that FOUR degrees, and our little guest from flapping in the wind---it was Kick-Ice COLD, folks!
We went on a short tour out at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with Honey in her little race outfit.
With some of the 265,000 permanent seats in the distance. Another 165,000 are set up in the infield on Race Day---can you IMAGINE being in the middle of 400,000 yelling, cheering fans as those race-cars roar around the track?
And some of her little outfits for the week in Indy. Amazing what you can do with imagination, a little Google, a Box of 96 Crayolas, and a pair of manicure scissors.
This last one was because we all wore our orange T-shirts on Sunday. And because PEYTON.
Flat Honey is in the mail with her new wardrobe (and minus Stanley’s grilled cheese and toothbrush tube of milk) headed back home to show her second grade all the sights.
