One of my goals this summer was to do some hiking with the boys. It's one of the ways we can get some exercise while spending time together. I also want them to have an appreciation for the outdoors and the beautiful surroundings we are fortunate enough to live in.
We did get out on a few hikes. Not as many as I was hoping, but it's a start to what I hope will be a great family activity in the years to come. Nicholas has always enjoyed hiking...Andrew wasn't always a big fan. His little legs just didn't want to carry him far enough. Until now. This summer seems to have been a turning point for him. I'm so glad!
Here is a layout of us enjoying a picnic on one of these hikes. I added a camera accent. To me, cameras and scrapbooking just go hand in hand. You could use a camera on any layout, in my opinion, because what it says is capture this moment....remember this...never forget. Every photo taken is for the purpose of remembering a particular moment. Cameras help us to do just that.
I hand-made the tree using some scallop scissors and then trimming some triangles in staggered sizes. The scalloped circle was punched from some corrugated packing paper. I then inked the ridges with brown ink.
Patterned papers are from Imaginisce Happy Camper collection.
