*PLEASE NO COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD!!! ONLY PICTURES! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON DINKY'S ADVENTURES PLEASE START ANOTHER THREAD! THANK YOU!*
Ok ladies... here it is! The official Dinky the Dodo mascot thread!
How it works.....
1.When Dinky arrives, please post that you have recieved him so we don't worry! (If you would like to wash him before your LO plays with him place him in a pillow case and place him in the wash on GENTLE/DELICATE cycle.)
2. Keep him for 3-4 days! HAVE FUN!
3. Post your visit with pics and updates in THIS thread. (PLEASE NO COMMENTS in this thread!)
4. Pack him back in a box and ship to next person on list. (You will get a PM once you recieve him to let you know where he will be shipped next.)
Any Questions, concerns, or if you want to be added just let me know, either through a PM or on another thread!!!!
Here is his itinerary: (I tried to set him up in geographical order the best I could to make it easier and keep shipping to a minimum! Dinky has visited those names who are in red!)
So far Dinky has traveled 4,088 miles!!!
Names in red mean Dinky has been there! Name in blue means Dinky is visiting. Name in purple means you are next to visit with Dinky!
Here are a couple of blinkies I made up if you would like to use them:

Ok here's Dinky's first adventure! He stayed with us here for a few days. Kayley mostly enjoyed playing with him, but I didn't get to take as many fun pictures as I would have liked!!!
Breakfast with Dinky!
Bottle with Dinky!
Giving Dinky one more good chew before passin him onto Gabi and Sarah!
Gabi had her visit with Dinky... they didn't make friends, Gabi snubbed him. Hopefully the other babies make him feel more welcome. Poor Dinky LOL. Here are some pics.
Play date at the park.
Gabi would rather have a cheerio.
Gabi and Dinky at Mem-may's house!
Well, we had the privilege of welcoming Dinky to our "dinky" state of Rhode Island this weekend! He and Keira had a blast.
K thought that a pool party was in order, since we had such a special guest. Here she is talking to Dinky... then showing him to Daddy... and then telling me that she thought Dinky should sleep over. (I agreed.)
And since he had never been to RI before, we decided to take the Dinkster on a road trip down to Watch Hill to see the sights. Here he is on the Flying Horse Carousel, which is actually the oldest carousel in the United States - how fun! (He got to go on it all by himself when the staff learned that he was an important world traveler.)
And finally, Dinky said he HAD to see the Atlantic Ocean while he was here in the "Ocean State":
Dinky will be missed! But he's looking forward to many more adventures with all of you...

Dinky has left Jersey (and this time I wrote the full address!)
What is that?
Is this for me?
Dinky decided to hang out at work with me, also:

Dinky departed today via UPS . . . We had a great time with him here in the nation's capital. I can't take pictures while driving, but (because Tru can't take toys to daycare) Dinky commuted in and out of DC with me everyday to work. So know that he has viewed the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the White House, and the Lincoln Memorial--he's all caught up on our nation's history. Here are the pics I actually got to take
Hey, what's this? Do I know you?
Better put it in my mouth and say hello . . . (don't worry we washed Dinky)
Here Ainsley, you say hello too . . .
Dinky commuted to and from work with me this week--here we are getting ready to leave in the morning, yes the clock says 6:13am
Dinky was waiting for Tru when we picked him up from daycare.
Look, Ma, Dinky is still here . . .
Dinky, these are my toys . . .
Dinky took a spill from the Learning Table--you OK Dinky?
Dinky, you sleep here for the night...
Fits you perfectly!
Saying goodbye to Dinky this morning when he woke up--I think the bottle won out over Dinky
Bye Dinky! Have fun with Alec! Hope you enjoyed the nation's capital!
Dinky joined us for a little too long (sorry!). We got him and then we all got sick and forgot that he was around - he's a little quiet. We are finding that Alec is not so much into stuff toys so Dinky was ignored except for the first day that I got Alec to hold him:
The rest of these are me just inserting Dinky into what Alec was playing with:
Dinky has had a bath and is now flying (with the help of USPS) on his way to Tanner! Have fun!
Well Tanner and Dinky had a wonderful visit during his stop in Georgia! Not only did her meet Tanner, but he also got to meet Lauren (Seg519's LO). It was great fun! What a wonderful idea!
Thanks for looking!

"Oh my gosh! Get him out of the bag! He's suffocating!"
"Immediately! Into the mouth!"
"Love at first bite."
After a nap.
Getting ready to go to bed.
Dinky meets Lauren!
Dinky came at time when we were unable to get out much, but Emma had a good time showing him around the house.
What is this?
Not so excited at first:
What does this say?
This is my car Dinky:
Taking Dinky for a ride:
Checking out the sunset:
reading a book:
see the dog Dinky?
And one trip to work with me before we head to the post office:
Dinky came during a very sad time at our house, but Madison still had fun with him. In fact, she walked around saying "Dnky". It was pretty cute.
Madison gave Dinky a tour of our house. Here she was showing Dinky our Ms. Pacman game.
"Look Dinky these are our pots and pans". I'm sure Dinky enjoyed visiting those, lol.
Riding in the car with Dinky.
Madison was giving Dinky a serious hug at Target, lol.
