We had some teenage girls on the raft that were horrified that they were getting wet (it WAS a cold day.. but, uh, what did you expect?) .. he thought they were hilarious. ;)

I used VideoStudio8 - but the lower priced one. I think 7 would have worked (and been cheaper!), but 8 had screen capture software and since that was something I've wanted for work at times, I decided to go for it. Thanks!! I totally agree that the emotion hits harder in the video.. it's there in the scrapbook pages, but it's more my personal connection to the photo. The video makes me feel like I'm there again. =)

I totally get that! Sam was 6 on our first trip last year.. it was SO nice not to have to deal with strollers and naptimes and diapers! I do miss some of the absolute wonder that seems to come w/ taking them when they're younger.. but it's nice when they can keep up with you. =)

Sounds like the perfect excuse to me! I liked that my bag was big enough to hold my ID / credit card, some cash, meds that we might need for the day, and our portable phone chargers.

Just dig in and do it!! Think of it this way - it's more of a disservice to have them where you can't look at them. I've basically just got pics printed and into a handbook from our trip last year, no journaling or patterned paper or embellishing - but we still love to flip through it!

We were in the parks for 6 days, 10+ hours a day in most cases... and I have zero regrets about dragging my dSLR. I got a good camera bag (Crumpler 5mil dollar home) that was comfortable to carry and fit on 95% of the rides - I think that was key. I love shooting w/ my iphone, but the clarity of SLR pics just can't be beat, and most of my very favorites from the trip were shot with my Canon.

It will be! It isn't up in the shop yet, but we are working to make that happen.

It was a bit of a whirlwind, but here's what we did. I've been meaning to do a blog post about some of these places - maybe it'll happen now that the kiddos are back in school! St Louis : Rooster. AWESOME Breakfast. City Museum. Definitely a MUST DO. Schedule a whole day for it. We got there at noon and didn't see everything! Pi Pizzeria. Downtown, really good pizza. Donut Drive-In. Ended up here when Strange Donuts was sold out. It was good, but nothing earth shattering. Pickles Deli. Downtown near the arch. Good sandwiches. The Old Courthouse. ACK, a little history. ;) We had time to kill before the Arch. The Arch. Of course. =) Fitz's. They bottle their own soda and have a restaurant. We hit it on the way out of town and had ice cream floats. Kansas City : World's of Fun. 12 hours of amusement park-ness. Moon Marble Co. So fun to explore - we stop there every time we are down there. Fritz's. A train runs around the top of the place and delivers your food - which is pretty much the only redeeming factor. We visit KC often, but this was our first trip to St Louis. We'd love to spend more time there!

Yep, just a regular needle! You might slow the speed down a bit if you're nervous, but I've never had a problem. You can sew through wood veneer, too. =)

i think it would be worth a try if you're willing to sacrifice a page protector if it doesn't work out. ;) i'd use as little glue as possible, and make sure the confetti is all pushed to the other side until it dries. i also like using washi to seal off a page protector, but it doesn't work well with this style since it closes down the middle. it's awesome if it closes on top! kelly noel also has a great tutorial over at SC sharing some new sew confetti pocket ideas - maybe one of these would work? http://www.studiocalico.com/blog/2014/4/15/confetti-pockets-tutorial-kelly-noel i'd love to hear what you end up doing!

hi monica! i lightly drew out the shape of a half sun, and then wrote the letters to fit inside. i'm thinking i'll do a similar wall this year (but haven't done it yet) - i'll try and take some process pics and post them!

Thanks Nicole! It's an app called "Daily Weather." I love the design of it - so much cuter than other weather apps.

I have to admit those ears make me smile every time I walk into his room - I'm glad to have a shot of it in my album!

Marina - since they are 4x4, they are not as wide as the Handbook pages. They make a fun overlay or insert in a Handbook. I hope that helps! Lisa Truesdell
