Summer and reading just go together!!  Staying in your PJ's til noon is another Summer activity we embrace in this house ;)  And by PJ's, I mean my old t-shirts, cuz the kids always feel its too hot at night for pants.
I saw a quote once that I love that said,

"A room without books is like a body without a soul."

Not a single room in our home is without books.  They may all be Dr. Seuss and Little Golden Books, but I'd say it counts. 
These boys LOVE books more than anything!!  They pull them all off the shelves and devour them daily.  They spend hours reading to themselves and to each other.  Sometimes they try to remember the words that go with each page, sometimes they just make up their own stories for the pictures.
They carry the books from room to room.  Im constantly finding books under beds, in kitchen drawers, on bathroom counters, in closets and under pillows.
And they literally love them to death!!  Which is why we don't spent more than $1 on a book, cuz they just tear through them.  Especially if its a book to do with trucks.  Those things just don't last in this house. 
Oh how Brad and I hope that they forever keep their love of books and reading alive as they grow up!!!
