Flat Stanley's Big Day!

We took Flat Stanley to the Iolani Palace. The palace was the official residence of Hawaii's last two reigning monarchs, King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani before Hawaii became the 50th state on August 20, 1959.
Just across the street from the Iolani Palace is a statue of King Kamehameha the Great. The Hawaii Supreme Court building is behind the statue. King Kamehameha was Hawaii's first King and he is credited with uniting all of the Hawaiian islands under a single ruler.

The highlight of the day was when we ventured up to Punahou School, where the President attended high school. "King Obama" was written in the cement near the cafeteria.

There was a boys' volleyball game being played in the school gym. Flat Stanley got to sit in with the band for a few songs. They let him play the snare drum.


  1. Flat Stanley and Obama--too funny!!

  2. OMG Lorena, this is too cute! Flat Stanley is like the perfect boyfriend/date!
