I got an early start leaving the kiddies and house in Gilbert’s care and went down town. Got the boys some play clothes and did a lot of picking around at the pretty things. Got home at noon, got a little lunch, bathed the babes and by that time Harry, Winifred, and Mama came, spent the afternoon and Papa came out for supper. Harry is quiet – won’t say anything but josh around and tell about the south and how much money he is able to make down there. Is spoiling W. and no can say anything.

(What a rare treat for Grandma to have a morning to herself to shop a bit and "pick around at the pretty things" in the stores.)

    I'm surprised that Grandma would buy play clothes since she sewed so much.

  2. I am surprised too. why not buy dress clothes & make play clothes? However, it was good she had a chance to get away & brouse in the store. I'm sure that didn't happen that often.
