Summer Vacation: Day 12
Day 12 of summer vacation and the entire weekend in general was simply beautiful. Sunny and temperatures around 70 just made for a perfect weekend. On Day 12 we had some special guests over for dinner and enjoyed some margarita's as well. If only summer could stay this nice; however, I know 90 degree temperatures and humidity will be here soon enough.

After hearing all the hype about the Fifty Shades of Grey and the two books that follow, I caved and bought it. I have never been so captivated by a book in my life. If you're a little too conservative or a prude--this book is not for you. However, I found this book to be a fantasy but yet somehow grounded in a sense of reality. I am excited to get into the second book this week.

That time of year again! We signed up for our local library's summer reading program. After reading a certain number of books or reading for a certain time frame the kids get to put their names into buckets to win different prizes. They also get a free book and other automatic incentives for reading. Along with the reading our library has entertainers such as a puppet show, pirate songs/stories, jugglers, etc. My daughter looks forward to the program every year. It gives us something else to do during the summer and keeps us heading to the library.
