(Exacto is telling this from Flat Stanley's point of view)
Here, Aunt Annie and I are outside Voodoo Doughnuts. I really wish that I could have some, but I'm so flat that no matter how much I chew my food, I can't swallow it.
Here I'm camping in the Columbia River Gorge with Aunt Annie, Uncle Dallin, Annie's mom Sandi, her dad Allen, and her younger sisters Katie and Ellie. When we first arrived at the campsite, I was scared that I was going to get lost in all the leaves, trees, bushes, and everything else. But Aunt Annie and her family took good care of me and made sure I didn't get lost. For example, they wouldn't let me go anywhere by myself; whenever I wanted to go anywhere, I had to take someone with me.
Here, I am with Aunt Annie and Emma the black lab (Aunt Annie's family's dog). Emma smelled me and then said that I was her friend. I asked, "Does that mean that you're not going to eat me?" Emma assured me that she only eats dogfood (usually).
Me with Aunt Annie and Zoe the yellow lab (Aunt Annie's other dog). I told Zoe that if she ate me, then Hummer might be sad. Zoe said that she wouldn't eat me, but she might lick me. I said that licking me would be okay, as long as she didn't get me soaked.
Here, Uncle Dallin and I meet a dinosaur at the Oregon Zoo. I didn't know that they had dinosaurs at the zoo! For some reason, it didn't move at all the whole time I was there. Maybe it was hibernating. (With its eyes open?)
I met some penguins! They were very nice to me. They said that I could relax on their backs for a while. I asked Aunt Annie if I could, but she said no. I guess she didn't want me to fall in the water.
Here I visited the ocelot. I asked why people didn't just call it a leopard, but it ignored me. I'll ask the next ocelot I see. Maybe there will be ocelots at the next place I go to!
