Steppin' Out

The Shoes
Originally uploaded by radarkaty.

My baby boy (all 16 yo, 6'4" of him!) will be attending his first prom, wearing his first tuxedo, riding in his first limousine... what a bunch of firsts!

But first - we went shopping to rent the proper raiment. All the way to the store, he and his buddy were planning extravagant, lavish, totally inappropriate mixes of color and substance! :)

One theme kept repeating:

Son: "I want to wear bowling shoes"

Me (and buddy's mom): "Um.... no!"

Upon entering the store, son sees the shoe display and points - "That's what I want to wear!"

The shoes on the left are the 'bowling' shoes he meant... and he'll be wearing them.

Totally a better choice than the bright green sport shoes with pink Power Puff Girls shoe laces he wore to homecoming one year.

Those are some snazzy looking shoes. Hope he has a great time!
