The Wild

Just a quick family trip to our (neighborhood) Cabela's. So many things to love. It's air conditioned, unlike a zoo. And it's free. There's ponds of fish, and millons of "stuffed" animals, so we've got Brendan covered. And the rest of the kids can smack each other around with fishing poles, pretend to shoot each other with guns, climb into boats so their mom can take a picture (clearly ignoring the "No Children On The Boats Please" sign), and when all that gets old, throw a tantrum thoughout the store and all the way home because "Camden got a HUGE sample of fudge and I only got like one little crumb." It wouldn't be a proper family outing without one meltdown. Usually it's mine. Jordan was furious that I got a picture of him crying (something I throughly enjoyed) and made sure that I took another one of him once we got home and he had calmed down. "Don't you think that my behavior has been much better, Mom? I'm going to try extra hard to behave from now on." Yeah, that should last.

  2. We love Cabela's! We have a Bass Pro Shop, which is similar to it, and always stop there with the kids just to look. One time I found camping chairs for the kids for under $5! I bought 2 of course and was thinking of getting more. After seeing your zoo post I thought it was funny that you mentioned the store beinn "air conditioned". :)
