Gas Prices and Books

Good news!! When I stopped at the gas station this morning to fill up the tank, I only paid $1.96 a gallon for gas! I was able to fill up my SUV for less than $30. That has never happened before! I am in no way complaining about the price of gasoline ;) but I have to say that I really don't understand it. How is it that we were paying over $4/gallon just a couple of months ago, and the prices has dropped more than $2 in such a short time? Adam says the demand for gasoline has gone way down. I guess I understand the law of supply and demand as well as anyone, but could the demand really have dropped that much? It baffles me. I suppose whatever the cause, I should just be grateful to be getting my gas so darn cheap!

On a totally unrelated note, I took this photo recently, unnoticed by Ty. He goes through his bookshelf multiple times a day "reading" all his picture books. It usually keeps him occupied long enough for me to get ready in the morning. He is even to the point that Adam and I can tell him, "Let's read Green Eggs and Ham, or Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" or another title, and he will retrieve the correct book. I am obsessed with the fact that he loves books! I think he definitely acquired that trait from me!

So cute. Our little man loves to look at pictures in the books too. We'll see if he likes to read like his dad, or just likes to look at pictures like his mom! :) Not long before we are out there in CO. Are you still going to be in Centennial this time next year?
