Cause That's How We Roll

The 24-hr-read-a-thon was somewhat of a success. I say somewhat because a bunch of girls got together over at our friend Julie's home with books in tow and ready to enjoy a full long day of catching up on some much needed reading and relaxation...
Aww...can't you feel the heat of the sunshine just by looking at this picture? That would be myself, Amy and Julie out on the lawn reading and Tabby up on the porch. It was so lovely and so serene. And I even have the sunburned back to prove the hours of enjoyment!
Books, bare feet and blankets.
This is not a posed picture, we truly were sitting in our chairs, enjoying each other's presence and reading our books with either a glass of wine or in my case a bottle of G2 :-) Divine isn't it?

But then.....
We started to get a little distracted...
Maybe the heat was getting to us....
Or maybe we were taking an afternoon break to celebrate Melanie's birthday ghetto style. (click on picture for larger view)
Ain't nothing but a G-thing, right Rachel?
Here's Master-C blowing out her candle and receiving her dirt cake. (which is basically a cake made to look like a potted flower)
Cause that's how we roll yo.
It was such an awesome weekend. I almost finished one book, but I had puppy-duty from 5pm on and they took up a lot of time to watch. We are definitely going to do this again! And next time, collectively we'll track how many pages read.
