One day last week my brother wrote me that he is travelling to Argentina and Chile for a holiday. We were so envious! Anyway we were wishing we worked and lived abroad some time in our lives too. While dh and I were talking the conversation got to, in ten years time (so long?) even Jared will be off to national service (army) and then we'll go work and live somewhere abroad. Then Ryan said, how about weekends when we come home from the army? We said you can take care of yourself. And he went, okay, computer games and instant noodle... great!! And dh said, you forgot one factor, girls. And Jared went, we are going to be bacalers. Bacalers? Oh, he meant bachelors! Then I proposed the advantage of girl friends, for cooking and washing your army clothes, all in love and out of free will. And Ryan went, that's nice! with a thumbs up sign... Jared was not so convinced... what conversations we have. Must record this for reading back in ten years time..... Haha!
Well, I worked hard to complete all my New York layouts. I had to, I was running out of steam. And they're done! First up, a layout of Central Park Zoo, on a rather cloudy day.. the boys had been dying to go there to meet Alex and Marty and the characters from the Madagascar cartoon and were shocked they were not there! :) (click on image for larger view to read journaling)

Now our day out to Liberty Island took me four layouts to scrap. They were all too good to be thrown out or squshed in one layout. Blame dh (or thank dh) for fantastic shots that tell such great stories :) I tried all different styles, but I think I like this one best. What do you think? (click on the image for larger view)
