When our grandson, Tanner was 5 years old, we took him on a vacation. We wanted to introduce him to family in Chicago. We criss crossed several states, stopping at every child friendly attraction we could find. This was his "I will only eat at McDonald's" phase. On we went, zig - zagging several states going from McDonald's to McDonald's. Each night we would stay at a hotel and the first thing Tanner would ask was "Where is the pool?" and "Can we go swimming yet?" He loved the water so much. I would put his floaties on his arms and get into the pool with him while he splashed and paddled around. He had so much fun and he tired himself out each night. Now his grandfather had a different idea of what to do at the pool. He would climb into the hot tub and relax until it was time to go to our room. They each enjoyed the water in a different way. Even now I am not sure who had the most "Water Fun" on that vacation.
Pretty layout! I really like your clustering and how the seahorse's tail is curled under the star shape. Your choice of background paper really helps enhance the subject of 'grandfather' floating. Good luck to you!Rose Thorn
fabulous layout. gorgeous composition and awesome journalling.

I was just enjoying your story, the nostalgia, having had young ones and remembering those days, and then you topped it off with the grandfather in the hot tub and that made me really giggle! I love your story, and the photos are perfect! The mat you made for your text is so charming! I love the frame cluster and the stars just added to the mix perfectly. You have an awesome layout! Thanks for sharing!
