Took the kids shopping today.

Both have some pretty ratty looking wardrobes that have been driving me crazy.

So today we hit the outlet mall to remedy the situation.

To sum up: Girls are more expensive than boys. They are also more indecisive.

Evan, as usual was *very* predictable. Except the one shocker. Anyone who is new to knowing our boy Evan should know that when he was two, he formed an opinion of his clothes. He has never wavered. He wears brown sandals...or brown loafers depending on the season. He wears plaid shorts and plain polo's or plaid shirts and khaki's, with the occasional stripe. He wears no pictures on his clothes. He wears dark colored jeans or dark colored jean shorts. He doesn't like "big" plaid, only small. He's also had the exact same haircut for the same four years.

Today, we had a little shock.

First the outfit:
 And! He bought tennis shoes. Black and green. (So not really a huge shock, he loves black and green) but that shirt? Wow! And he was set on it the moment he saw it.

Here are the other things he chose today. (And I swear on a stack of Bibles, this kid picks his own clothes and many of the things I thought looked cool he snubbed. It's all him)

Kira, went with the 80's theme. If you have a little girl, you know what I'm talking about. It is unavoidable. Kira is more easily persuaded than Evan though, so I had some pull. But not as much as I might have liked. I really miss Gymboree.

So we hit Justice and Kohl's. And she is one happy camper. Her shoes are purple and white sparkly sketchers. So very cool you know?

Shawn even came with us today, and did what my dad always did. Found a bench and waited patiently for us to spend his money. ;)

Oh I love shopping for kids clothes because they look cute in everything! You came away with some great looking stuff.

Too cute.

You got some great outfits and shoes there. One thing I've learned is that boys are just as particular about their clothes and how they look as girls are - they just aren't as openly expressive as the girls.
