Read to me

Last week I took the kids to the library - not for story time, but for quite time. It was really great. We spent well over an hour there just pouring through different books. All three of my little loves seemed to really enjoy themselves.

The best part about a trip to the library with mom in the afternoon is getting to read with dad at night! It's amazing how he and all his funny character voices can captivate the children the way he does. They were so engrossed in the story they didn't even know I was taking their picture.
I love, love, love family time!

Read to me riddles and read to me rhymes
Read to me stories of magical times
Read to me tales about castles and kings
Read to me stories of fabulous things
Read to me pirates and read to me knights
Read to me dragons and dragon-book fights
Read to me spaceships and cowboys and then
When you are finished- please read them again.

Read to me

Books are the best and it's wonderful to see how you have taught that to your children. It is a very important & fun part of life. You & Branden are AWESOME parents!
