The Gutierrez Family Reads in Colorado

Last week, my family took a trip to Estes Park, Colorado.  And of course, when you have a librarian in the family, a vacation is going to include lots of reading!

Here's my husband, Mr. Gutierrez, taking a break in a cool Colorado stream to read one of his favorite Elephant and Piggie books.

And my oldest daughter, Arabella, got SO excited when she spotted this sign as we pulled into town!

We also took time to visit MacDonald Book Shop, which had a great children's area!  Here are Arabella and Emeline enjoying some books.

Reading makes a fun family vacation even better!

Mrs. Mathis learns about San Antonio!

It looks like Mrs. Mathis look a trip to San Antonio.  What a great opportunity to read!  Here she is reading about bears at the San Antonio Zoo.

And here she is reading about Texas History on the San Antonio River Walk!

It looks like it was a great trip!

Reading is...Delicious!

Here are Bradley and Amanda reading all of the ice cream cartons on their tour of the Blue Bell factory in Brenham.

Are you guys trying to choose which flavor to try?  Or are you trying to figure out what ingredients they put in Blue Bell ice cream to make it SO delicious?

What's Mrs. Bull up to this summer?

Here's Mrs. Bull reading The Shack at home.  It looks like that copy may have been read before.  Summer is one of my favorite times to re-read some of my most favorite books!

Hope you're having a great summer Mrs. Bull!
