Summertime... And the Livin' is Easy

Picnics, beach days, fireworks...  I love summer!  In celebration of the first day of summer this Saturday, we enjoyed a Sunny Summer-Themed Storytime!

make and capture our summer memories.

Day of the Dad!

Daddy Hug by Tim Warnes
Animal fathers give hugs that come in all shapes and sizes, and every one is filled with love.

The Daddy Book by Todd Parr
Dads are all different!  Some bake cookies, others buy doughnuts...  Some have a lot of hair, others just a little.  But they all love to kiss and hug their children!

We made cards for that special dad, grandpa, uncle or brother...  To celebrate Father's Day!
Thanks to the blog at for this fabulous idea.
