Busy Weekend continued

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.

wow - your library gives out great prizes for summer reading! We've gotten Applebees the past but that was it. And we don't get that until the last day of the program (they give out 1 prize for each week that you read, only 1 week at a time, and most weeks are 'junky' things like bouncy balls). We need to move a little north to be by you and the great library there!
