This is how we shopped for school clothes, when we were up in Layton the first weekend in August. This was the same weekend I was up there for the FSA Conference. The kids liked the mall, except the part where we made them try on shoes and clothes. Luckily, I did most of the school clothes shopping online, so the only shopping we really had to do was for shoes. I know what size my kids feet are, but that doesn't mean a pair of shoes that size will fit them exactly right. These pictures were the fun part of hanging out at the mall. And yes, we were also the bad parents that let our kids ride up and down the escalator while we focused our attention on another kid, trying to find the right clothes or shoes. If you can't already tell, it is called the hurricane simulator. I am sure anyone who has witnessed a real hurricane would tell you, they are not this fun.
