Grand Canyon, AZ:

Dayton Celtic Festival, Dayton, OH:

And my crazy kids in their Comic-Con costumes - they thought the Redwoods were the perfect backdrop for being Bilbo Baggins and the Doctor:

So that's it. Around the country in 3 weeks. Now we're up to our ears in VBS, but I'm hoping to get back to scrapping (and the COWs I missed) soon!

What an amazing trip. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE the collages! Are you going to print those off for summary sheets for your scrap-book pages?

Thanks all - I'm glad you liked seeing the pics. It was a wonderful adventure, and we made many memories. I don't know if I will use the collages in my scrapbook, but they were a good way to sum up each day. I honestly have hundreds more pictures, so we'll see what happens when I get that far in my scrapbooks.
