Family Shoe Extravaganza

It happens every fall, where we gather and shop for new shoes for the grandkids.
Today we had a very modest potluck brunch. Then off to the Lawrence Kansas stores

Keller, age 7, seems very excited about pink and grey Vans.

Everything in her wardrobe involves pink.

In the midst of all this chaos, we also hold an ugly shoe contest. Each kid gets to choose what they think is the ugliest shoe in the store. Then they photograph it and adults vote later. Small cash prizes are awarded by the jury of adults. It is a stupid day, but maybe someday they can buy their own shoes, with considerable thought. In the meantime, we laugh ourselves silly.

Here is Owen considering a contestant.

And a month or so ago, I came back from Taos NM with a crow mask. Everyone loves this. Even adults wanted a turn. It was in a kitchen/home shop, for goodness sakes.
