  2. 2. Flat Stanley flew to Colorado in February of 2011. <ul><li>My Aunt Missy and Uncle Bob played with him for a few weeks and then forgot about him. Flat Stanley laid in a drawer and dreamed that someone would take him on an adventure. </li></ul>

  5. 5. We had a picnic there. <ul><li>It was very cold and started to snow, so we had to eat our lunch in the van. But, we stopped at the visitor’s center and found some brochures. </li></ul>
  6. 6. We found a brochure about the Stanley Hotel. <ul><li>Flat Stanley really wanted to go there, so we did. The hotel was built by F.O. Stanley, the inventor of the Stanley steamer car. The hotel was opened in 1909. </li></ul>

  10. 10. <ul><li>We played at the arcade. We also dressed in bank-robber costumes and pretended to be in jail. </li></ul><ul><li>Stanley was tired and stayed home. He would have gotten wet from the cliff divers like we did! </li></ul>
  11. 11. The next day we went into Denver to Pete’s Greek Town Café. <ul><li>We ate interesting Greek food like Gyros and Calamari (squid), feta cheese, olives, spinach pie, cucumbers, and baklava for dessert. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Then we went to the Children’s Museum of Denver. <ul><li>We had fun with bubbles, pretending to be firefighters, making bunny noses and ears, and going to the petting zoo on the front lawn. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The next day was Lukas’s birthday and Easter Sunday. <ul><li>We dyed Easter eggs and made Resurrection Buns. They were so good! </li></ul><ul><li>We had pizza for supper and got to pick our own toppings.
