What You Do When You Don't Have Toddlers

Last Thursday [yes this is late!] we were toddler free!  So what did I do with a 5 & 8 year old and no little ones?

Go to Barns & Nobles to get a free book from their summer program
Go to Boarders to get another free book from their summer program [this program is the best!  Each time the kids complete 10 books they can go to the store & grab a free book.  Best part..they can do this over & over all summer..Boarders only though.  B&N is a one time deal.]  Mackenzie also purchases a book with my 40% off coupon.

Stop by a local Library book sale
Grab pizza for lunch
Go to 'our' local Library to switch out books
Grab Cold Stone Ice Cream for treats [with free coupon for reading 5 books]

Swim & Slip n Slide with the neighbor kids

Seriously the kids were in heaven & we got over 30 books, lunch, & ice cream for $30.  I couldn't do this every day but it was not too bad!

*See official rules for summer reading programs at their website..this was not an endorsed post.


  1. Aren't library book sales the best!? I have A Million Little Pieces & My Friend Leonard that I picked up in month's past & haven't read yet. If you get to yours before I do, let me know how they are! I've also read The Lovely Bones & it was good and have the sequel (or maybe it's just another by the author) in my stack to read next!

  2. That is a great day if you ask me...and so inexpensive!

  3. Thanks for the tips on the bookstores, I had no idea. How awesome... and you know how I love free ;)


Thanks for taking the time to read some of our story & especially for commenting!
