I bought the Cityscape Stamp Set (C1563) with these photos in mind and I am thrilled with the way the page turned out.  We were having one of our 'Tourist in our own town' days and exploring the newly opened Brookfield Plaza.  I wanted a very simple layout as the photos had lots of detail within them.

Family time is the best time

As our kids grow the opportunities to just hang out together become fewer.  They are just so busy living life and being the well adjusted, social & opportunity seeking individuals we raised them to be!  I loved this afternoon stroll on our local dog beach.  We chatted and laughed and even touched on some D&M topics.  It's this everyday stuff that I cherish most and so it needs to be in my album.
