This past Saturday Matthew decided he wanted some running shoes. Not just any running shoes. While most boys his age rock Nike Frees or Reebok Zigs, my 13 year old went straight for these electric blue/white/red Asics GT-2170's.
The newly opened Merchants Walk Roadrunner Sports sized him in a size 9, so if Matthew ignores the shoes, his older brother will quickly gobble them up. We shall see.
Perhaps they are a trendy choice after all. Friday night I dragged Ceil and Anna to a hot new restaurant on nearby Paper Mill Road: Moxie Burger. Ceil loved her salad, and my burger was excellent. Much better than Five Guys or Flip Burger, at a reasonable price. Anna enjoyed seeing the ketchup bottle explode in my hands. And all the teenage waitresses rocked Asics, similar to Matthew's.
After dinner we made the drive up Birmingham Highway into south Cherokee County to pick up Matthew at a friend's house. Saw two baby deer, and their mother.
