What to Read...

So I just finished the last Harry Potter book. Yeah, I'm just a bit behind on the Harry Potter scene! Of course they were all really good and I got through them all in around 3 months so that's not too bad. Now I don't know what to read though. I hate picking things to read! I was going to read Under the Dome by Stephen King, but Scott let his dad borrow it so now I have to wait for that one. I don't even know what kind of book I want to read. Just something good I guess! 
So...What do YOU think I should read??

 Here are just a couple pictures from our trip to the zoo last weekend where they have a pretty good dinosaur exhibit set up for the summer. And in case you didn't know, our kids LOVE dinosaurs!

Mammoth Cave

This past Saturday we took a trip to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. It was pretty cool although next time we decide to go in a cave we'll make sure none of our kids are in the toddler stage. The 3 big kids did fine and seemed to enjoy it, but I couldn't let Owen walk around in there so Scott had to carry him the whole time. We had to get through some tight areas and it just wasn't a good set up.

We walked down a little trail before our cave tour began and the kids were very excited to see a chipmunk up close.

I also learned that taking pictures inside a cave is pretty tricky so most of them didn't turn out especially since I didn't have any extra attention to devote to changing the settings on my camera.

Our one family shot of the day turned out pretty bad. Nobody was looking, Owen was crying, and Adam passed out. So we only gave it one try.
