Katie Holmes spent a girlie afternoon shopping in downtown Vancouver on Wednesday with her four-year-old daughter, Suri, and 18-year-old stepdaughter, Isabella.

The trio, who were in town this week visiting Tom Cruise, stopped into Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory to buy Suri a lollipop.

They moved on to Starbucks to order some drinks before popping into Holt Renfrew to peruse the cosmetics counter.

Suri sat on the counter, watching her mom sample makeup, while dabbing a few colours on her hand.

"She was enjoying herself and looking at everything," says an insider.

But before long, the little girl became restless and ran over to a perfume counter that had a fish tank.

"Katie after a few minutes seemed worried and called Suri to come back over," says the source.

Daughter Isabella is rarely seen in the public eye. The teen and her brother Connor were adopted by Cruise and then-wife Nicole Kidman, who were married for 10 years. When the couple's marriage hit the brakes, the kids chose to live with their father.

Kidman now a two-year-old and a newborn (born by surrogate mother) with husband Keith Urban.

Cruise has been in Vancouver since early December for filming of "Mission Impossible: 4." His wife and daughter have been staying with him for much of the time at their exclusive downtown hotel, guarded by high security.

After their shopping adventures on Wednesday, the Cruises returned to their hotel to meet up with Tom, before jetting out of Canada.
