It was a day off from school yesterday, so I took all three kids into the city to see my mom and do some shopping! We went to Old Navy, where we did pretty well. I've scheduled a professional portrait for Cameron and my 10th anniversary in April, so I was looking for clothes to wear for that. I found a coral cardigan for myself, and a coordinating cardigan for Sage. It's a lighter coral on top, with a strip of cream around the middle and a soft yellow at the bottom (the colours kind of blend into each other), so it's not the same as mine, but it'll match well together in the portrait. I also got her a black t-shirt, because I thought if we take some photos of the three kids together, I thought it would be nice if they were all in black. I got black t-shirts for the boys and Cameron--black with white stitching. (Although, Cameron said he doesn't like the stitching and the one for Jonah is kind of big. So I think I'll return them and try to just find some plain black t-shirts, which could be a challenge. Black is hard to find for kids.) I also ended up buying a black spring jacket for myself at the mall. We went to McDonald's for lunch-- always a hit with the kids! And we didn't stay too long at the mall. We hung out at my mom's condo for a bit in the afternoon, before driving home. All three of my kids fell asleep in the van, which made it a nice quiet drive for me, but a bit of a challenge for bedtime in the evening!
