The picture above was taken last year at the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island in Manteo. We go there almost every time we're on the Outer Banks. They have a large tank with live animals that the girls can touch. They say they don't like the sting rays because they're too slimy.
We're leaving for the Outer Banks tonight and won't be back until August 16th. Thanks to technology, however, there will be plenty to read while we're away. I have several spotlights and guest posts set to run, so keep checking back in with us. If I can get a good Internet connection down south I'll even pop in and let you know if I've discovered any great books in the many used book stores along Route 158.
We hope you'll follow The Book Connection, bookmark us and let your friends know we're here. There are several summer reading giveways running right now, so make sure you enter those. And don't forget to check out The Kids Book Connection from time to time. That blog will be on hiatus while we're away, but once we come back we're planning all sorts of fun stuff for that site.
