I'm an official cheerleader for Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-thon, which means I'll be visiting dozens of blogs, encouraging readers as they attempt to read for 24 hours straight. I didn't sign up for the Read-a-thon this year because I have a brunch to go to this morning, Ben has a sleepover guest, and Evan planned a bike ride for this afternoon. I did get some reading in this morning, though--I'm reading this:
Which definitely doesn't look like my usual choice in reading material but as a very tongue-in-cheek take-off on the Cinderella story told from the fairy godmother's point of view, it counts as a fairy tale for the Once Upon a Time Challenge.
Here are my photos for Saturday Snapshot. Evan has been wishing for a fire pit, but at this point we don't have one. Ever the resourceful boy, on Thursday when the weather was absolutely summer-like, he asked if there was any reason why we couldn't pretend our Weber grill was a fire pit and roast some hot dogs. And so that's exactly what we did.
|A terrible picture of me, but these boys: I adore them|
|I adore him, too|
We had so much fun. I have no idea why we've never thought of this before.
After the hot dogs were cooked, Evan and I made a quick run to the store for marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, to make s'mores for dessert.
Well, I'm off to my brunch. Whether it's for 24 hours or 10 minutes, I hope you get some reading done today!
