Summer Vacation by the Numbers

I was inspired by the monthly layouts that Melissa over at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces does every month. I think it's such a fun way to capture the month.  I know myself pretty well and knew I would never keep up with the monthly numbers, but I knew it would be perfect for our summer trip.

We had a grand adventure in July. A car trip out west. We were able to see so many wonderful places that this great land offers and do many new activities.

  1. That is a LOT of miles Monica! I hate traveling by car and don't think I'd have made it through day 2 of your trip!

  2. Such a cute way to document your trip! :)

  3. Great list of numbers!

  4. Love the numbers, we did cross country and northeast into Canada trips with our boys, wouldn't trade them for the world :)

  5. Wow, 13 states - sounds like our kind of trip!!!

    Thanks so much for the link today. The last couple of weeks have been so busy, I haven't had much creative time & still need to do my July Month in Numbers. It totally made my day to see that my posts sparked some inspiration for you - great idea to use the numbers for the trip. (I, as usual, got the idea from other bloggers - love that about blogland - ideas spreading around the globe.)
