I woke pretty early this morning and got the boys up earlier than they would have liked, but we learned that Cameron has his end of season party for his baseball team this afternoon at 2, so we need to get a move on if they want to go eat breakfast. Stella offered to make pancakes for them but they want to go out to eat. We have been seeing ads for Ryan's for their buffet breakfast, but there aren't any in north Houston within 20 miles according to their website. We decided to go to IHOP which is pretty near the park. The boys love going there and we timed it perfectly between the crowds. We had no wait when we got there and went right to our table.
After breakfast, we came back home and packed up all the boy's gear that they brought. Stella had washed their clothes a couple of days ago but they still had a huge sack of dirty clothes. I don't know how they do it. In spite of all the warnings, they forgot to pick up their tackle box but as far as we can tell, that's all they left here.
Since it was the middle of the morning on Sunday, we made a quick trip to Texas City. The traffic wasn't bad and there were no accidents on the road, so it was a pleasant trip. We got them home before noon.
We didn't stay very long at their house and came on back home to further avoid the Sunday afternoon traffic. On the way home, Stella decided to look for a new laptop computer. We stopped off at the Sam's club in Texas City but didn't find anything there, so we went to the Best Buy in League City where I had bought mine. She found one there that she liked and we decided to buy it. They offer several add-on packages, but she decided to just buy the restore disk. After we paid for everything, we learned that it would have been after 5 before it was ready. The clerk told us that we could take it to the store nearest Spring so we wouldn't have to drive so far. We made a good trip back up here and dropped the computer off at the store here. They said they would have it ready for us first thing in the morning, which was fine with us.
We came on back home and Cassie-girl was glad to see us. I still miss Ralphie but she sure makes it nice to come home to an excited puppy dog. We watched the NCIS marathon for the rest of the evening. What an exciting life we lead...
