Share, Fun Times

I love getting to SHARE memories and such fun times with my littlest son!
I love the big smile on my sweet son's face in this layout! We were riding on the "convertables," and Ezra, at the time only 1 year old, was "driving" on this local carnival ride!
Below is a detail photo showing many of the embellishments and elements I included for the various challenges I entered this layout in!
Last, is a closer shot of the photo of my son in the cars! This is always one of his favorite rides, and we visit on a weekly basis in the summers! My Recipe for This Layout:
