One of the staples in WIP kits are tickets, tags, baker's twine and other fun hand-made items from Trish. I started this layout really wanting to use these items together. Not that you need a ticket to dine anywhere on the cruise, but I liked the theme. I was going to title the layout "Ticket to Dine" or something to that effect until I settled on the present title :) Check out those GIANT hotdogs in front of my kids. Is it me or that thing is almost as big as Second Child's face?! lol. Is that little crab totally adorable? It came just as it is in the kit, love it!
It feels good to finally scrap these photos, sitting in an album since 2006! We were on the Big Island and on our way to a snorkeling site. These dolphins came up to swim next to us to take advantage of the current generated by the boat. Yes! These are dolphins in the wild, how lucky were we to see them swimming with our boat, and how lucky was I to get them on camera!
As I prepare this blog post, I feel incredibly lucky, to have traveled and experienced so much. My DH can testify how I am never satisfied with the amount of travel we do, but I do know I am blessed in so many ways. Today, we celebrate thirteen years of marriage, visiting hallmarks in downtown Philadelphia, with kids in tow. Blessed indeed :)
