Reader scrapbook

Editor’s note: The Martinez girls — mom Noemi, Gabriela, 5, and Andréa, 8 — pose for a photo earlier this month in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park. It’s unusual for me to run a photo of my family in the paper, but we have no other reader-submitted photos to fill this spot. So please submit a summer vacation photo — home or away — so we can run it as a Reader Scrapbook image.
