You and your sons will have a wonderful time, no matter how you are dressed, however.
Thank you -- I'm really trying to dress the kids appropriately (me & dh I have covered,
I just got back from shopping and picked up the following:
8 yr old -- khaki slacks, white shirt w/navy dressy plaid & navy blazer
5 yr old -- dark khaki/olive slacks, white shirt w/thin dark plaid (more like pin stripes that go horizontal & vertical, not exactly plaid...); the color of the stripes matches the color of the slacks (this was wedding attire we had at home, that fit the 8 yr old 2 yrs ago, now fits the 5 yr old)
1 yr old -- black cordurory (sp??) pants & a white shirt with red & black pin stripe plaid (like above shirt, for lack of better term); I know cords are heavy weight for the Carribean, but in our rural town, dressy/formal wear is only available at Christmas & Easter, at least for kids, so it was this or nothing
we will probably add ties for the boys as well, if we can find them.
I also picked up a pair of dockers type pants for each boy, will pack jeans for back-up in case of spills, and dressy slacks-style shorts for extra back-up, just in case.
I think we're set -- thanks, all!!
