Our Week in Books, the hand-me-down edition...

This is our week in books at Libby Blog! 
This feature is not our own original idea and is inspired by so many others that are out there (esp. IMM by The Mod Podge Bookshelf and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Review) with the goal of sharing our new books and getting to know one another a bit better in the book blogging world. If you have a similar post for the week, please share it in the comments so we can comment back...

I hope everyone had a great week last week!? Especially those in the United States since we were celebrating our Independence Day here. I decided at the last moment last Wednesday when I got up in the morning and looked at our full weekend home together that I just couldn't do!! So, I packed up the whole crew of little girls, big chocolate lab, the hubby jumped in after work when he drove into the driveway and we headed for the far northern woods of Wisconsin! Our favorite place to go camping in the state campgrounds! It was wonderful and relaxing, but the mosquitoes were as BIG as HUMMINGBIRDS!!! Holy moly! When we got back Reaghan finally was able to do something which she tells you about in the video, so you'll have to check it out...
