Summer Reading List

Ah, summer! My favorite time of year. The time of vacations, parks, bbq's, camping, pools, fireworks...I just love it. Living so far out of "town" we don't get to do quite as many fun things as maybe those who  live in town, or a city, do. So we have to make our own fun. We do this by spending a lot of time outdoors. We have a perfect setting for it. Big yard, great grass, and no traffic on the road.  I like spending time outside as much as the girls do (usually in my swim suit....gotta work on that tan!), but I look a little ridiculous sitting in the baby pool. So I spend my time in a lounge chair watching the girls play. Preferably with a book in hand!

This year my reading has been slacking a little. I love reading. It's one of my favorite ways to relax. But lately my free time has been spent doing just about everything but that. So this summer I am resolved to read at least 3 books (one per month). My inspiration comes from something I did in the girls room, which of course was inspired by something I saw from Pottery Barn Kids. (surprise, surprise).

By the way, the one from Pottery Barn is $50 (for 24"). I got mine from Hobby Lobby. It was originally $40 but with a 40% of coupon it was $24. Or you could wait for it to go on sale with the "Wall Decor" for 50% off and only pay $20. Either way it's a lot less than the PBKids one!

So back to reading...Like I said before, my goal is to read 3 books this summer and here's what's on my list: (links provided to by clicking the picture).

I also need/want to do better at reading to my girls. Hence the wall book shelf next to the bed! Here's a few of the books that we have been enjoying reading before bed.

What's on your reading list this summer?

Oh man, Skippy Jon Jones and the bike lesson! You must like long books. And I just bought a shelf yesterday to put above Samm's bed for her books, but I'm afraid the books are going to fall off and hit her. I like your shelf a lot better. I may have to take a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow!
