Family Travel Log

Some folks collect postcards, or spoons. We collect magnets. And yes, we usually have them in use to hold stuff up. This arrangment was for photographic purposes only.

from top right: Oregon Coast, USS Arizona Memorial Monument (Hawaii), Mount St Helens (Washington), Seattle/Space Needle (where Hubby proposed).
second row: Zions National Park (Utah), Mesa Verde NP (Colorado), Yellowstone NP (Wyoming), Redwoods NP (California), Jade City (British Columbia)(that's the little green B.C. shaped one), Arches NP (Utah).
third row: Olympic Rainforest NP (Washington), Bryce Canyon NP (Utah), (yellowstone, redwoods), Yosemite NP (California), Crater Lake NP (Oregon).
fourth row: Stanley Lake (Idaho), Maligne Lake, Jasper NP (Alberta).
fifth row: Norway (flag), Jackson Hole/Grand Teton NP (Wyoming), Payto Lake, Banff NP (Alberta), Canyonlands NP (Utah), Mendenhall Glacier (Alaska), Glacier NP (Montana).
bottom row: Moraine Lake (Banff NP, Alberta--one of the most beautiful places on earth), Capitol Reef NP (Utah), San Diego Zoo (California), Trinity College Library (Dublin, Ireland), Yukon Territory (it's a gold mining pan).

Obviously we have not gotten very far east yet. That is planned for coming years. But I thought I'd share the fridge so far...and additional magnets will need to be photographed separately because if I add any more to this setup you won't be able to see them at all! (Let me know if you'd like to see a closeup of any particular one!)

I like this idea! I'm a minimalist at heart (my husband calls me a "stuff Nazi" because I go through our belongings periodically and toss anything we don't use anymore) so sometimes when we've gone somewhere cool and we're gazing at souvenirs, I'm wondering why we'd want to shell out money on something we're just gonna shove in a cardboard box and put in the closet. But magnets can be nostalgic AND useful. Yep, I like it.

I clicked on "comments" to make a comment that is identical to becky's. So instead I'll just say,
"Becky stole my comment!!!"
Nice to meet you.

That's a good idea! I may start doing that, too. Thanks for the idea!
