New Shoes....And Socks!

Monday again and I have the baby Matthew. We went to the park this morning and as he ran hither and thither and yon his clogs flew off his feet now and then! So I decided we would visit the shoe store to find something else, and my favorite shoe store for toddlers, Stride Rite of course! His daddy wore them and I actually went to the same store location for shoes for Matthew's older cousins.
This necessitated a visit to the Mall, where, honestly, I go about once a year-maybe!
We found some handsome leather sandals.......
and some nice new socks!

As it happens right outside the shoe store is a little ones play area, no one over 42" tall is allowed! Well, other than parents/grandparents that is.
Matthew loves that place, he ran.......
and climbed .............

and hollered with joy for a good thirty minutes.
After which he was quite worn out so we had to leave before he got fussy.
We passed the Brookstone store and there right up front were these fascinating balls that flash wonderful colors when bounced.
One of them came home with us and it is his new favorite toy-for the moment! He bounced it all over the house until GM decided it must be nap time!
He's getting too big for the Pack'nPlay but it wouldn't be quite so bad if he would lie lengthwise instead of crosswise!
I think I might skip the gym tonight, I am feeling a little weary myself!

I think it was okay to skip the gym as it appears you got a lot of exercise with Matthew today! SO cute....

I think we must be kindreds. I skipped the gym tonight too. Just to tired:)
Love Stride Rite, love the sandals. There is a Stride Rite outlet near me that I like to go to.

Good for you grandma. You kept up with this little guy. I don't think you needed to go to the gym after spending the day with Matthew. You got your "workout" for the day.
The shoes are nice. I think that parents appreciate it when we buy something that the grandbabies need. It all helps. I like these shoes because they have velcro closings. They look like good ones.
You're a good grammy....
