My favorite vacation souvenir

We haven't taken a lot of family vacations, so when we do, I like to take lots of pictures and document the event. My new favorite vacation souvenir is the 8x8 photo books from Shutterfly.
A couple of weeks ago, there was a special of buy one, get one 50% off or something like that. I was able to put together a photo book from our family vacation this summer in the Twin Cities

and also from our family vacation last summer to Chicago. In the back of the book, I like to glue in a little envelop to hold various ticket stubs and ephemera from the trip.
I also try to include specifics about what we did and what we liked about the vacation or interesting little things that happened.

Eventually, I would like to have a complete collection of 8x8 books from our family trips. I have a few more to get done, but really for the money, I think this is the best vacation souvenir ever!

I totally agree. I did one for our trip to Colorado a few years ago, love the book!

I agree. I can't think of a more permanent way to cement those memories. I need to get busy on mine. I am way behind!!

I love the idea! What family doesn't want to look back and see all the fun memories they had from their vacations!
