Jackson's New Boogie Shoes

Note: Turn on your speakers

Last weekend, Justin and I (along with Grandma and Grandpa Bixler) took Jackson to get his first pair of "Walkers."

Justin and I both can remember going to "Buster Brown's" in Muncie for new shoes when we were young. Walking up the steps to make sure I had the right fit and getting a balloon is one of my favorite childhood memories. So it was only fitting that we take Jackson to "Buster Brown's" for his first pair of walkers.

The children's shoe store is in a new location...but is pretty much the same. We picked out some shoes, Jackson walked (more like crawled) up the steps and he was thrilled with his balloon. Jackson was very patient as we tried on a lot of shoes...even a pair of John Deer cowboy boots made the cut...but they didn't make them in his size! :)

Enjoy the photos from the shoe store. It was great fun...and a great way to bring back some memories.

Let the walking begin!

P.S. My mom was snowed in and couldn't make the trip (I'm starting to think Cadiz is the new Alaska...tee hee)...We missed you, Mom.

P.S.S. "Thank You" to Grandma and Grandpa Bixler for Jackson's new tennis shoes!

Special Note: After shopping, we went to Olive Garden for lunch. I went to sit my purse under the table and I found a penny. I quietly picked it up and tucked it in my purse. You all know my theory on finding a Penny...and I knew then, my Dad was celebrating with us too. He wouldn't have missed it!

So cute. He is adorable and so good to have tried on so many pairs. Which pair did you end up with? All of them looked darling.
Love you Buddy!

How fun! I know all about Buster Brown's & have childhood memories myself of walking up the very same stairs (in the old location of course) and getting a balloon. I'm sure it was fun to travel down memory lane! :)
