It was finally time to take Carson to the mall and get him some new shoes. He has a pair of sandals he has worn all summer, but his toes are beginning to fall over the edge, and now that he is extremely active, he was in need of some good tennis shoes. Little did we know that a new pair of shoes for a one year old would cost us $45.00! We took him to the famous kid shoe store, Stride Rite, where they proceeded to tell us that our child needed "special shoes." Yes, it's true, he did! Not just wide, he needed EXTRA wide! Poor little thing, he has chunky little feet. They sized him and we found the perfect pair. Now he's really a runner!
