Hanging at Lantern Hill (My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge entry)

Lantern Hill
My sons are 29 and 32 today. When I look back at the photos I have of them when they were young,
of course I wish I had taken more, but mostly I'm excited to document those times that were so special.  The photos bring back the memories and feelings from way back then, and now I have a way to write them down and explain the photos.
This was a trip to Lantern Hill. It is the tallest point in our area. The kids and I walked to the top, where I took photos of  nature and dh took photos of the kids and me.  The boys had so much fun, playing in the bushes and celebrating that they got to the top of the "big hill". I am so very happy that I have these photos! My journaling on this layout is hidden under that piece of paper that is under the photo.
I am entering this layout into the My Mind's Eye September Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch:
