So after the clothes shopping we walked to the toy aisle where the boys found the Pokemon card sets. That was where they got very serious. They had a limit on time and money so being focused was important. They looked and wondered and even did a price check at one point. They pondered the idea of pooling their money. In the end they walked out with just what they wanted given how much they could spend.

I bought 16 rolls of toilet paper and some Armour All Wipes to use to clean my car with. We were all smiling as we walked to the car.
Naturally, after a hard morning of shopping we needed to eat so we headed off to Red Robin. We have gone to the same place since this ritual began with this family of children 4 years ago.
As we were walking, to the door they clutched their cards in their hands. That was when I wondered out loud if they loved me. Of course we love you grandma they both said in unison. Why? I asked, wondering what the response would be.
We love you because you are the best! Why did you think we would love you?
I thought it would be because I bought you prizes. It was hard to admit to them that I even thought that.
I walked into Red Robin marveling out loud...Wow, I am the best! Honestly, isn't that just the most wonderful thing ever? I am still smiling!
