Family Bedtime Stories

It is bedtime.

You are scrambling around with the last few kid details, pre-bed.

I want a story!

You are in NO mood to read the favorite book.  The book that has been read faithfully for the last kajillion nights.

It is time for a new book!

Family Bedtime Stories Grab a photo album.  It doesn’t matter which one.  It can be the one of the family beach vacation or in our case, the day trip to Dinosaur Valley {a National Park a few hours away}.

Tuck in the kid(s) and open a memory…
