TO school shopping...


we found ourselves in Gap kids yesterday during a spontaneous trip to the mall in attempt to escape the heat.  our little garrett, it turns out, is a big fan.  he chose many shirts and shoes and jeans and even tried them on in the dressing room.  i will never forget seeing him come out with his baggy jeans, trendy t, and his hands in his pockets. i kid you not, he was strutting! he gets it from paul:)
we decided to make a day of it and get him new shoes.  i needed paul's help, as i had already taken him to two shoe stores without luck.  turns out he is not a fan of the foot measurer or the try on stockings.  we ended up with a trusty pair of new balance tennis shoes in a size 7.5 EXTRA wide....Paul said they looked like squares.  now i laugh every time i look at his feet...they are thick:)

Oliver used to wear double wide, too! He's now down to a single wide! Too cute!
