Sunday night Ram and I watched "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" as some Loopers had recommended it. I had mixed feelings after watching it-some parts were good, some parts were strange. I'm not recommending it but I'm not upset that I spent an evening watching it either.
Ram and I would have liked to have slept in on Monday but the Lambs didn't allow that. First we made eggs and toast with strawberry jam for breakfast. While I was doing some planning (meal plan, grocery list, etc.) Ram fell asleep and took a long nap. He needed it after his trip last week and it was his day off.
So we were finally off about 2pm for errands. First was Toys R Us to let the Lambs finally spend some of their birthday money. Lamb 2 chose a couple of small Playmobil sets. Lamb 3 chose a school bus Playmobil set. They had a small coupon for Toys R Us.
Then it was to Barnes and Noble because I had forgotten to take their summer reading program papers when we went on Saturday. Lamb 1 and 2 each got to chose a free book. Lamb 3 wasn't old enough to participate. It did get Lamb 1 and 2 to record 8 books they read. Lamb 1 bought some Legos at Barnes and Noble after comparing prices at a few stores.
Then we went to Joe's Crab shack to use another library summer reading program reward. The Lambs all had free meals. It was a mistake for me to order crab when the Lambs finish their meals so quickly and get bored and I have to crack open my crabs and get the meat out. It took a long time for Ram and I to eat but it was really good.
Then we went to Costco and the grocery store. The Lambs and I had picked up a few items on Saturday but I hadn't had time to look at my pantry and what we needed.
We let the Lambs stay up a little later so they could play with their new Legos/Playmobil. Tuesday it was back to work for Ram and back to our summer routine.
