New Boots


There is nothing so exciting for my boys as getting new boots. Last week we noticed that Jonah was outgrowing his bright red rubber boots quickly, and Henry's bright yellow rubber boots had more than a few holes worn into them. Sam told them we could go and buy new boots! Hurray!
Off we went to the ranch supply store that we were SURE had rubber boots. No luck. They had plain black ones, but somehow that just didn't inspire joy for my boys! So they were very disappointed. I spent the next day on the phone trying to find a place to buy some fun rubber boots. A helpful lady finally said to me, "Well, I just can't think of any place closer than Target that has those. I'm sorry that I can't help you." Hadn't thought of Target yet!
Off we went. We came home with a pair of bright green "frog" boots and a pair of bright red "ladybug" boots. Henry was a little disappointed that Jonah didn't want matching ones, but Jonah really HAD to have the ladybugs!
So for those who asked, here is a picture of the boots, and by the way--I did not ask my boys to pose for this picture! :)

I love those boots! They are great. I don't think they had those back in the day, but I sure wish they did... I can buy them for grandkids maybe someday :) I love how little kids play, the boys are just too stinkin' cute!

Such little hams. I usually have to bribe mine—just depends on their mood.

I find their fetish for boots both hilarious and adorable.
Do they have the lady bug boots in a women's size 7?
