What I didn't do was take the album with me. I learned last year that with two little ones and lots of other people to visit + hang out with at the campground, there isn't a lot of down time. This year, all of my down time was spent napping. :) Fine by me. It was just one less thing to pack.
I didn't collect very much ephemera this time. Much of what I gathered last year - maps, farmers market flyers, brochures - was the same stuff I could have taken this year and I really didn't want to repeat myself. You can see my minibook from last year's trip here.
Once we got home, I edited and sized all of my photos down, trying to sketch up mini layouts to fit on each page. I really didn't have any rhyme or reason as to what went where, on what paper and at what size. The photos ranged from as small as 2x3 to full page, 6x8. Once I gathered the few notes/stories I wrote down during the trip, I got to work.
Lots of photos below - feel free to click on the images to enlarge them if you want to see them in detail or read the journaling :
On the left, I used the food planning menu that Mark made as a page and wrote a little bit about how we probably brought too much food :)
Loved using the Ormolu Treehugger Dots n' Spots on pages that I didn't have anything to fill the space.
