So, we met up with Grandma at the mall, and let me tell you, the woman knows how to do it up right. This wasn't just school shopping, but a full mall experience. :)
Of course she got the kids book bags and lunch boxes and new shoes, but she also got them some special surprises from the Disney store (hello Planes figurines and Sophia dolls),
a ride on the train,
and a ride on the carousel!
