My childhood best friend, Nancy, lives about 1200 miles away from me. She has two kids, Marco (a year older than Trevor) and Julia (a year younger than Trevor). Trevor adores them. Nancy's parents live part-time in our hometown (about an hour away from me, where my parents still live), so we usually get to see Nancy, Marco and Julia about once a year when they're in town to see them. Last year, they made three visits to our area within a 6-month span. What a treat to spend so much time together!
I took a lot of pictures of the kids playing together during the three visits and chose five to combine into one layout.
I ended up not putting any journaling on the layout. The title says their names, the dates are on the photos, and the activities we're doing together are fairly obvious. I kept the layout really simple, bright and happy. I hope it helps Trevor remember great times with good friends who live much too far away.
