This week is going to be a writing week, so in lieu of actual knitting, how about random photos?

A few Saturdays ago, we had an aimless day on the North Shore.

 Messing around in downtown Newburyport, which is on the water.  It's beautiful and New England-y, with consignment shops, a record store, a great bookstore, some good lunch spots and amazing hot chocolate.  (And Julia, who we didn't see - sorry!)

It also has a good men's shoe store.

 We were in it long enough for me to take the camera out. and shoot artsy boot photos.

She knows how long the manshoe thing can take.

.........and it's taking about that long.

 Maybe even longer.

He had no idea we were taking pics.

Until she photobombed him.  

So pleased with herself


He's eventually unamused by the mockery.

Giving me the California bird.   But,  if you're wondering, nope - he didn't buy ANY shoes.

That is hilarious. I feel that if you are going to spend so much time shoe shopping that your family is taking photos and having some mild fun at your expense that you should at least get some shoes!

Haaaahahaha, that's awesome. Maya's face/posture in the 5th photo down captures the moment perfectly! Love Craig's hat, btw. :)

Shoe shopping with a man is waaaaay worse than shopping with women! Sounded like a fun day anyway though :-)

Great family time! (And, since he didn't end up with shoes THIS time, you can all do it again soon!)
