Silly Sightseeing

While working on Diddle, Diddle Dumpling, the page featured in yesterday's blog post, I kept noticing all sorts of arrows and pointing fingers in this Echo Park collection, Note to Self. Arrow paper, arrow border, arrow stickers! I knew right then what photos were next in line to scrap.


Just before his senior year in high school, Chris participated in a 10 day service project in Mexico. They spent their time making life a little easier for the very poor residents of the central Yucatan peninsula. One project was to re-thatch the roofs of villagers. I wished for at least a few photos of the high school boys' service, but I suppose it wasn't the time to take pics when they were working. Instead, the camera came back with a bunch of silly photos from their free day...swimming in a cenote (gorgeous underground swimming hole), exploring Tulum, and acting silly among the ruins. At least Chris handed off the camera so that he was in some of the pics, even if they were silly ones. :)
