Summer Read-a-thon: Week 2

June 17, 2013

I hope you are enjoying the read-a-thon so far. We’re on vacation this week, relaxing from a very busy year. So in honor of our vacation at Cape Cod, this week’s theme is:

The Beach!

What is your favorite thing to do at the beach? Do you swim, surf or boogie board? Or just relax with a good book? My kids love shell and rock collecting. We usually come home with at least one bucket full of smelly shells and seaweed. 🙂 1014355_10200890832608950_1280923561_n
